The Forte Way

The Forte Way means that we treat clients and employees like partners. We celebrate your successes, share in your challenges, find innovative ideas to achieve your purpose, and thoughtfully guide your decisions.

There are no predetermined outcomes and no predetermined transactions. In fact, there may be no transaction at all. We’ll offer innovative options that meet your business goals and timeline – we give each client the attention of our entire firm to find the best solution.

With many years of experience, we know how big firms operate – and we choose to do it differently.

“We’re passionate about helping our clients’ purpose, drive their real estate decisions – but most of all, we really are partners with each other, our clients, and our outside service providers.” – Jim Jetland, Principal

Everyone talks about culture but at Forte, we live it. We work together to build houses, pack meal kits, and support healthcare for those in need.

Our employees commonly used the word ‘collaboration’ to describe our workplace culture.

Each quarter, we plan a team-building event – some include a non-profit focus, and some are just for fun. Tour de Forte, our annual bike outing, has taken us around the Minneapolis chain of lakes and out to Excelsior. Our non-profit support brings us to Feed My Starving Children, Habitat for Humanity, and Every Meal.

Our Clients Come First

Forte Real Estate Partners was created by the union of two well-established Twin Cities commercial real estate firms in 2021 to better serve clients and prospects locally, regionally, and nationally. Our leaders have long-standing client relationships in the community, serving on boards, chairing fundraising efforts, and offering pro-bono real estate advice. 

We go above and beyond the real estate transaction – considering the culture and business of your organization. That’s where our tagline comes from: Your organization’s purpose is absolutely our passion to bring to life in your real estate.

As your full-service commercial real estate resource, we work hard to develop trust through transparency.  Our experienced team of professionals can be your in-house real estate department or augment your current real estate or facilities team by becoming your partner, adviser, and advocate.  See our track record of success with clients of all sizes and businesses.
