Commercial Properties Development Group Takes Footing In Raleigh

Commercial Properties Development Group (CPDG), a new commercial real estate firm, has opened its doors in downtown Raleigh with two industry veterans leading the helm. With more than 35 years of combined experience and Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designations, Commercial Developer Kate Tillman Brown and Commercial Real Estate Advisor Beverly Keith have joined forces to create a comprehensive brokerage company to serve clients in the Triangle area and throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic.

The well-respected duo partnered to serve commercial real estate owners and occupiers, franchisors, developers, and investors at every turn, from land to lease to longevity. Together, with its sister-company Commercial Properties, Inc., a Triangle area real estate development firm founded by Brown’s father Brantley Tillman over 41 years ago, CPDG is poised to do better business, garner greater results and navigate exceptional investment outcomes.

“The commercial real estate landscape is changing at an accelerated pace, and it’s not enough to simply offer brokerage and property management services any longer. Clients are demanding more, and that’s where CPDG comes in,” said Brown, company principal, Land Sales & Development. “Our company can serve investors seeking land and small- and large-scale development opportunities, landlords and tenants in a variety of industries, and corporations, businesses and franchisors focused on expansion.”

Commerical Real Estate Brokerage Services

Committed to redefining commercial real estate from the ground up, CPDG offers an array of capabilities to support the strategic solutions its clients seek. The company’s professional service offerings include:

  • Development
  • Project & Construction Management
  • Due Diligence
  • Investment Sales
  • Finance Sourcing
  • Leasing
  • Landlord/Tenant Representation
  • Property Management
  • Consulting & Advisory
  • Market Research
  • Site Selection

“For over a decade, owners and investors have operated in a manipulated lending setting. They haven’t had to navigate investments in this rising interest rate environment,” said Keith, CPDG principal, Leasing & Investment Sales. “We know that being a commercial real estate broker is simply not enough; clients need a trusted advisor and subject-matter expert to achieve long-term success. CPDG is that experienced change-agent. We are the industry savvy partner clients seek.”
