Where is the Market?

The commercial real estate market in Quarter 2 continued to show strong activity.  Q2’s Industrial sector ended with a 3.6% vacancy rate showing consistency from Q1 reporting. That being said, due to the pressures of the Federal Reserve on increasing interest rates, the perception of the market is that it is in transition.  Investment buyers are still searching for the right product, but the volume of deals is not as strong as prior years. The employment statistic for SE Wisconsin is at a 3.2% unemployment rate compared to the national average of 3.6%. There are approximately 180,000 job openings still available in Wisconsin in which manufacturing and trade positions are still in a constant need.

We at Judson and Associates, s.c. are confident that with strong earnings from our business and manufacturing communities, our vacancy levels will remain low and help push us through a softer market. We continue to monitor our clients’ and customers’ success as it directly relates to the success of the real estate market. Please call any of us at Judson and Associates, s.c. to discuss your property needs or the market.

From Judson & Associates, S.C

New Location for Spartan Coatings

Spartan Coatings was looking for a new location for their business.  They were hoping to find a place in Pewaukee.  Unbeknownst to the two business partners, they both reached out to Colleen Geiger with Judson and Associates, s.c. at the same time inquiring about the same location.  When they were able to walk through the suite, they immediately decided it was the perfect location and setup.  Some things are simply meant to be!  Congratulations to Spartan Coatings on their new office!

Salon Ownership Changes Hands

Colleen Geiger and Mike Judson were enlisted to sell a mixed-use building in Pewaukee which offered residential apartments on the second floor and an established salon on the main and lower levels.  After securing a qualified Buyer, it was smooth sailing to closing.  The Buyer will be able to enjoy their new business venture while the Seller is able to retire from running the salon.  Best of luck to the Buyer and Seller on their new adventures ahead, it was a pleasure to work with you!

Manders Collision Secures 5th Location!

Matt Judson was able to facilitate the sale of Morgans Collision in Muskego to Manders Collision. Tasked by Mander Collisions to continuously be on the lookout for properties that fit their expansion efforts, Matt was successful in his cold calling efforts to reach the owner of Morgans. The purchase of this location provides Manders with their 5th location. Morgans Collision had been in business since 2012 with a fantastic reputation and Manders expects to continue the positive relationships that Morgans Collision has provided to their customers and are excited to continue to grow.

Diversified Wealth Strategies moves to Pewaukee

Diversified Wealth Strategies was looking for an office with a fresh, new look. After a couple walkthroughs of the suite with different members of the company, they decided a suite at 325 Forest Grove Drive was the right office for them.  Colleen Geiger enjoyed working with Diversified Wealth Strategies, commenting they were “a very friendly, easy-going group of people to work with.”  We look forward to seeing Diversified Wealth Strategies have great success in their new location.

Asking the Right Questions Lead to Results

Restoration Systems initially reached out to Luke Russell at Judson & Associates, s.c. about two buildings we had listed for sale.  Unfortunately, after walking through both buildings, it was determined that neither would be a good fit for their business. While touring with the group, Luke was able to ask the group a lot of questions in order to gain a better understanding of their needs and what it was they were looking for in a property. Luke was then able to collaborate with fellow colleague, Cole Russell, who knew that 1604 Arcadian Avenue in Waukesha was soon coming to the market. The two were able to quickly get Restoration Systems through for a tour and the building was under contract before it ever hit the market. Congratulations to KD Customs and Restoration Systems on the successful transaction!
