Commercial real estate firm focused on retail properties opens in Fairhaven

Retail Property Advisors, a commercial real estate brokerage specializing in properties for retail buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants, has opened in Bellingham.

Neal Swanson, the company’s designated broker and owner of Retail Property Advisors, said the Puget Sound market has grown to the point that clients seeking to buy, sell, rent or lease retail space need a firm focused on that niche, even in secondary markets such as Bellingham.

“Clients need representatives who track new tenants and new developments and offer detailed information about the local market,” Swanson said in a May 15 press release. “Retail Property Advisors also conducts an analysis of various sites and a financial analysis unique to retail properties, not just commercial property in general. We’re focused on depth of knowledge within a property type, not breadth of knowledge across many properties.”

Swanson, a certified commercial investment member, offers extensive experience representing clients that include locally owned businesses, nonprofit organizations and franchises of national companies.

His previous clients include Five Guys Burgers and Fries, Go Big Paintball, Ace Hardware, Subway and the Whatcom Humane Society.

Retail Property Advisors has an office in Bellingham’s Historic Fairhaven District at 1200 Harris St., Suite 404.
