Pending rules related to lease accounting are due out this summer and may impact how businesses approach the lease versus buy decision.  There are many aspects to this question, and it will require an expert's help.

You Lead the Commercial Real Estate Market? So What?

downtown tucson la placita office arizona

A short history...PICOR began quietly, as a humble Tucson commercial real estate boutique firm in 1985. Back in the day, our founder gave a sly smile when anyone would say, or imply, "who are these guys?" Never seeking to dominate the market--only to deliver service that exceeded expectations--growth happened. It happened organically. Mike Hammond, then Tucson’s top producing commercial broker, built a firm with a culture that accepted nothing less than the best, taking a charitable approach in the community, and with clients and competitors in conflict resolution. He was fond of saying, “Marketing is too important to be left to the marketing department,” and built the firm on ethics and reputation.
