A Cardinal Tribute to Russ Hall, SIOR GSCS

Posted on Fri, Nov 22, 2019

On Sunday, November 17, 2019, we lost our brother, partner, friend, and teammate Russ Hall. Mercifully, his heart stopped quickly at the end of a day well lived in a place he loved.  Not only was he a giant in the business and a perennial top producer, Russ shared everything he had, and his heart worked overtime every day. Everything has its limits, and Russ gave of himself until it just gave out. We simply weren't ready... Ten days earlier, when we asked our team what they were grateful for, Russ replied with this:

"Am blessed to walk in to an office everyday where you consider all 50 people among your best friends.  Personally so thankful for my faith, survival of my little family, Health and all the wonderful blessings we hopefully never take for granted."

Tucson Industrial Insights at Midyear

Posted on Mon, Jul 15, 2019

The Tucson industrial market remained strong at midyear, as evidenced by our primary metric: Vacancy rate. Once again, vacancy has ticked-down, this time to 5.1%.

Tucson Start-up Manufacturing Growth Accelerates

Posted on Tue, Jul 09, 2019

Smaller scale manufacturing operations (1,000-5,000 SF) seem to be opening up shop and gaining momentum faster than ever. Why is this happening? I think the cost of manufacturing machines has come down and because of the strong economy, entrepreneurs have the spirit and the capital to start a manufacturing operation or grow their business with existing cash or lines of credit. Also, the cost of distribution continues to become more competitive.
