"Forte was an amazing team to work with and, despite the challenges, found us the perfect location for our first D-BAT location in the Twin Cities! Being right off I-94, our location is extremely convenient for all our customers in the east Metroplex, western Wisconsin, and surrounding baseball and softball communities. We look forward to working with the awesome Forte team on our second location soon!”
“We have worked with Steve since 2018. He has assisted us in establishing a full-service project team including design, construction and legal review that understands RCM and its unique needs. This allows RCM to evaluate options in any market and execute upon them once a site is selected.”
Chief Operating Officer, Retina Consultants of Minnesota
“Having an adequate real estate footprint to keep up with our growth is an important part of our success. The Forte team played a pivotal role with their advice, counsel, and project management for each new lease, making the transitions and decisions much smoother.”
“From beginning to end, it was a seamless process. From sight selection, to lease negotiations, to project management, we couldn’t have asked for a better partner. Our partnership with Forte resulted in a state-of-the-art building that reflects our company's updated offering and gives us space to grow. We are fortunate to have a true partner like Forte to assist in one of our biggest decisions in our 50-year history.”
“Steve helped EPPA with identifying a strategic location for us ten years ago. In the current situation he solved a problem with an aging investor group and found a Grade-A landlord that specializes in healthcare, allowing us to continue operating from a location that has worked well for EPPA for the past 10 years – a wonderful trifecta. His sterling reputation brought credibility to the project and focus to the strategy. He wasn’t afraid to tell us when he didn’t think we were going the right direction.”
Chief Operating Officer, EPPA
“Thanks to Joe Jetland and Katie Trevena for your help and partnership through the process of leasing our new office space! It was very refreshing to speak with folks like yourselves, who didn’t mind that we were seeking a smaller/no-frills space. The fact that you made this happen as quickly as you did, and the space was exactly what we were looking for speaks volumes to your approach.”
“We were fortunate to have the engagement of the Forte project management team throughout the entire process, their knowledge was valuable in turning over our project on budget and with limited impact to the schedule. They were a key asset to the success of our project.”
President, DAVIS & Associates
“The team at Forte did a fantastic job! They asked us some great questions, listened closely to our responses, and provided excellent advice on how to proceed in bringing our unique property to market. Ultimately, Forte delivered outstanding results by finding the perfect buyer for us and facilitated the closing of the sale all within the same calendar year."

“I had the pleasure of working with both Joe and John on two occasions. Both times, they were so helpful in providing information and guiding me through the process. They went above and beyond on all the details and were always happy to answer my questions.”

"Forte found us a great location with the type of image and rent we wanted and did a great job negotiating the lease for us. We would hire them again and recommend others hire them too!"

"The healthcare advisory team has been a vital part of Children’s real estate strategy and development work for many years. Steve lives and breathes our mission with us and it is evident in his commitment to our organization. We are very thankful for his industry insight and extensive experience. He is a true pioneer in the healthcare real estate advisory realm!"
“Trust is a very important issue for me when selecting a real estate broker. The trust I have in this team provides me great confidence that General Mills’ best interests are being considered throughout any type of real estate negotiation.”
Director Global Real Estate & Facilities
"Focus Financial has partnered with this team because of their market knowledge and strong industry relationships. We have worked together on numerous real estate transactions in various sub-markets over the last 15 years. We have tremendous confidence that the team will deliver professional real estate advice."

“The Forte Real Estate Partners industrial team-Phil Simonet and John Young was our trusted partner throughout the sale of our property, which resulted in an outstanding experience. Selling real estate during a pandemic is not ideal. The Forte Team made it seem like business as usual.”
