Steve joined BARBERMURPHY in 2005 when the company started and was made a partner in 2013. Steve specializes in the industrial market in Downstate Illinois, leveraging experience gained over the course of his career prior to joining BARBERMURPHY, during which he sold industrial equipment to manufacturing facilities throughout the Midwest.
Working and focusing specifically on the industrial real estate sector for more than a decade, Steve has gained a dynamic and comprehensive view of the Downstate Illinois market. His hands-on experience with manufacturing and warehousing gives him a depth of knowledge that proves to be a distinct advantage when working with clients.
He is also a quick study when it comes to understanding each client’s specific industrial real estate needs, helping them to quickly and efficiently zero in on the right properties for the right project. He has a proven track record and has tackled some difficult brownfield assignments, making him a valuable partner for those in need of assistance with the disposition or acquisition of industrial real estate in the area.
Steve's notable projects include his representation of the Chemetco Bankruptcy Estate in the disposition of the 387-acre former Chemetco Copper smelting facility in Hartford, Ill. This ongoing transaction, which has spanned more than 10 years and requires facilitation with multiple stakeholders, including bankruptcy courts and State and Federal EPA agencies, is one of Steve’s most challenging assignments-to-date. Other noteworthy sales include a 406,000-square-foot former Anheuser Busch Distribution facility in Mount Vernon, Ill., and the 434,000-square-foot former Meridian facility in Centralia, Ill.
Through these and many other transactions, Steve has grown to be a seasoned broker who knows how to complete difficult assignments with multiple stakeholders over long periods of time, even when they involve complex issues ranging from environmental concerns to governmental constraints. He understands how to maneuver through the regulatory and permitting process; earning respect from his peers and the trust of his clients.
Steve is a member of the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR). He is also a Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM). Both designations have stringent education and performance standards to achieve membership and give clients confidence that their professional commercial broker has the necessary skill sets, integrity, and work ethic. He currently serves as an officer for the St. Louis SIOR Chapter.
Steve lives in Kirkwood, Mo., with his wife Lori and son Vito. He is involved with Pedal the Cause, a city and community-wide bike challenge that funds cancer research projects such as those at Siteman Cancer Institute located in St. Louis.
A seasoned broker is one who has been through the ups and downs of the ever-changing market and is still standing. It's someone who not only works harder but smarter than the average broker. It's someone who will go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure each client’s best interests are satisfied.
