NAI Trio Makes Most of Market Opportunities

NAI Horizon brokers Barbara Lloyd, Rob Downing and Cameron Harkey have branded themselves Strategic Commercial Partners, a direct reflection of the team’s commitment to servicing their clients with a full arsenal of property and investment options.

Barbara, Rob and Cameron focus geographically on Tempe, Scottsdale and Downtown Phoenix helping office tenants, landlords and investors navigate what has become a complicated market full of opportunity. The team specializes in urban infill locations that offer tremendous opportunities for reduced rates, but access to transpiration and urban living amenities.

“We have a commitment to providing excellent service and research based advice for our clients,” says Downing. “Our marketing program exposes our clients’ properties to the highest number of qualified buyers in the shortest period of time and we also bring over 35 years worth of experience to the table.”

Notable clients past and present are Boeing Corp., LandAmerica Title, Edward Jones Investments, California Bank & Trust, Zion’s Bank and many more. The team works hard to coordinate the needs of their clients by keeping them in the loop with a team blog, follow up conference calls and additional market knowledge. This builds trust between client and broker making the Lloyd, Downing & Harkey team the first place clients turn to when they have questions about commercial real estate options.

But it’s not all work and no play for the team. Barbara volunteers with several organizations including the Tempe Community Council and Tempe Neighbors Helping Neighbors. She is also an avid hiker and biker, too. Rob has competed in several marathons and ironman triathlons and is also a baseball coach for the McCormick Ranch Little League in Scottsdale. Cameron also enjoys an active lifestyle and was a player on the ASU Sun Devils football team.

As for where the team is positioned now, Lloyd says she has seen a significant increase in business. “Our team sales and leasing volume is up over 100 percent over first quarter, 2010. We feel 2011 is the year savvy investors and tenants make the decision to take advantage of terrific prices and steadily solidifying fundamentals.”
