“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.”
“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.”
Shawn Meyer, President
“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 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!”

He is a true pioneer in the healthcare real estate advisory realm!"

“The Forte Real Estate Partners industrial team-Phil Simonet, Joe Schultz, 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.”
