Who We Are

The mission of McBride Real Estate Services, Inc. (MRES) is to provide real estate solutions that champion our clients’ business objectives. We are not a typical “brokerage” firm. Rather, we are a flexible organization, consisting of seven senior real estate professionals driven to provide our clients with the best solutions at the best value. Our partners’ backgrounds include work in the legal, financial, construction and architecture sectors, plus an average real estate experience level exceeding 10 years. The advantages MRES clients enjoy are: customized solutions, access to the best professionals for every phase of a project and the personal attention of the company’s principals.

Our size is our strength. The core of MRES remains small on purpose. Having worked for companies of various sizes in our past professional lives, we have found that a strong, small team with complementary skill sets is able to provide the best services and maintain the best relationships with our clients. However, our core size does not limit the depth of our services. Rather than having a large organization with weak links in several service areas, we are able to provide the best professionals for every phase of a project through our strategic alliances. MRES is able to support our clients with the resources of almost 200 employees for all key planning, transaction and implementation areas as described in Our Services. Furthermore, we are able to flexibly staff a project in any location utilizing the ideal team to deliver the customized solution.

In our hearts, MRES is a Tenant Representation firm first and foremost. That being said, we provide a full complement of real estate services to support our tenant clients. These include: representing our clients in the acquisition and disposition of leased and owned facilities, lease audits, lease administration, strategic planning, enterprise integration and project management for a wide variety of real estate projects.
