TESTIMONIALS – WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING:
"I’ve been reading Properties Magazine since I began my career (a while ago) and have always found great value in reading and occasionally contributing to Cleveland’s Record of Commercial Real Estate. ‘Record’ – yes, I imagine I am not alone in being a hoarder of past issues; as a useful reference library for data, commentary and beautiful imagery of projects delivered in NEO. We’re experiencing a true renaissance in Cleveland and Properties continues to provide an amazing publication celebrating and documenting our success!"
–Robert Weeks, NAIOP Northern Ohio 2018 President
"Given my position with the Cleveland Engineering Society and the necessity that I stay informed of all the current construction projects in the region as well as what companies are involved with those projects, Properties is the only publication I read cover to cover on a regular basis.
