Rancho Cucamonga, CA – March 22, 2016 – For the fifth consecutive year, Progressive Real Estate Partners has been honored with the 2015 CoStar Power Broker Top Firm Award in the Inland Empire region. The annual CoStar awards program recognizes the “best of the best” in commercial real estate brokerage by highlighting the U.S. firms and individual brokers who closed the highest transaction volumes in commercial property sales or leases in 2015 in their respective markets.
In addition, three brokers from Progressive Real Estate Partners received individual CoStar Power Broker Awards—Paul Galmarini, Janine Peltier and Pablo Velasco. They were all recognized as Top Retail Leasing Brokers in the Inland Empire based on the total leasing transaction volume that each one closed during the year.
“We are thrilled to be recognized for the 5th year in a row as one of the top brokerage firms in the Inland Empire. We appreciate CoStar recognizing the consistent results and value we provide our clients. Furthermore, this award validates our deep commitment to being the region’s retail expert and “go to” brokerage firm,” according to Brad Umansky, president of Progressive Real Estate Partners. “I’m extremely proud of our team of talented brokers who helped us earn this honor through their hard work and dedication to closing a high volume of deals while providing our clients exceptional customer service,” he added.
