BARBERMURPHY offers a variety of commercial real estate services ranging from retail and office to investment and site selection, but perhaps our most well-developed niche is our industrial division.
This is partially driven by the region we serve having a long history as a manufacturing center, coupled with its emergence over the past couple of decades as one of the premier distribution and logistics hubs in the nation. It is home to household names such as Amazon, Dial, Procter & Gamble, FedEx and many more.
In real estate, there’s an old saying that it’s all about location. And key markets within Southern Illinois and the broader St. Louis metro area have tremendous locational and logistical advantages that are contributing to this bi-state region being recognized as one of the top 10 industrial markets to watch in 2018.
As various manufacturers and logistics industry professionals look to enter the market or expand their presence here, investors seek a stable industrial market in which to invest. The BARBERMUPRHY team has the background and expertise to help.
Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR) members Wayne Barber and Steve Zuber lead the industrial team with decades of real estate experience. They are bolstered by backgrounds in construction and industrial equipment sales, which gives them a unique perspective. Together, Barber and Zuber provide clients interested in industrial property or land in the Southern Illinois region with the most comprehensive view of the market.
Barber and Zuber have spent years calling on both light and heavy industrial facilities throughout Southern Illinois and they understand the sites, employees and communities that surround each of these distinctly different facilities. Their work experience with business owners and government leaders within these communities has earned them respect as the premier service provider for industrial brokerage services in Southern Illinois.
Their collective transactional experience that Barber and Zuber have includes brownfield sites, build-to-suit and finish-to-suit facilities, buildings served by overhead cranes, refrigerated cold storage sites, development sites, distribution centers, manufacturing plants, rail-served properties, rural communities, and warehouses. Whether a client is looking to purchase, rent or offer a property for sale, it can have confidence in the decisions made because our team provides the necessary information to make educated decisions.
Our hands-on experience also comes into play when compiling comparable sales and lease data on the industrial market, allowing BARBERMURPHY to provide clients with comparative analysis to truly understand why a property is valued in a specific way. Total square footage is one of countless variables, with amenities such as cross docking, transloading capabilities and barge access all needing to be taken into consideration. We take the time to thoroughly understand the value of a property and the associated assets, assisting clients in marketing their assets in the most compelling way to receive the most equitable deal.
Locating Properties/Site Selection
At BARBERMURPHY, we make the most efficient use of everyone’s time, especially during the property search. If you are in need of buyer or tenant representation, you can count on our industrial team to find you the rural or urban location that meets your specific zoning needs. We keep a detailed inventory of properties and available acreage that is the most comprehensive for this market, and typically have a deeper understanding of the nuances of each.
The industrial team understands what it takes to facilitate deals. It prides itself on an ability to work with clients throughout an often-complex process, whether they are startup companies or savvy corporations. Among our most recognized clients are industry leaders such as Anheuser-Busch and Ameren, as well as logistics specialists such as the Delivery Network and Lanter.
The team provides as much support and direction as needed based on the individual client’s history and experience. Partnerships with key vendors in the region allow the team to assist with recommending the appropriate professional service providers to the specific situation or issue at hand.
Through our relationships, we can directly connect clients with professionals who can assist with appraisals, archaeological services, architectural needs, bankruptcy, brownfields, construction, engineering, environmental, financing, inspections, legal, railroads, surveying, title work, utilities, and zoning. This correlates in saving time and money for clients as we help to expedite the process. We like to think that we don’t get in the way of deals we facilitate them!
