Bob Jarrard
Partner / Abel, Jarrard & Company
Over the last 3 years that I have worked with PREP, we have completed six sale transactions.

I found that my PREP broker would do anything he needed to do to solve problems and help me complete my transactions.

Mike Mugel
President / Red Mountain Retail Group
We have known the PREP team for years through their active industry involvement, but never had the opportunity to work with them until recently. We have had a great experience because the PREP team has been able to create results for our project that others were not able to create. This has motivated us to find additional projects in their trade area that we can work on together.
Chris Bergren
Principal / Evergreen Development
I am so grateful to the PREP team. Their leasing and investment sales team guided us through an extremely challenging disposition process. They helped us accomplish our goal and I am confident that without their assistance we would never have achieved the price that we achieved for our property in the timeframe that we achieved it. They are honest, hardworking and intelligent people and I could not recommend them enough, especially to those investors that may not have a lot of shopping center experience.
Jim Shelger
Partner / Barstow Shopping Center
I truly appreciate all that the PREP team did for me and my family. They were recommended to me by an experienced investor, but I did not know what to expect. As someone who has never had to go through a lease renewal with a national retailer, the sale of a property and the subsequent acquisition of an upleg, they provided me with outstanding knowledge, service, and results. I would be pleased to recommend them to other independent property owners.
Vince Burokas
Trustee / The Burokas Family Trust
We love the fact that the PREP team has been able to achieve great pricing when we needed to lease and sell our Inland Empire shopping centers. They are very detail oriented, pleasant to work with and always put our interests first. This is exactly the type of broker that my partners and I enjoy having represent us.
