Bradley Company and RESOURCE Commercial Real Estate join forces, Creates the largest, independently owned full-service commercial real estate firm in Indiana

(Indianapolis, Ind.) Bradley Company and RESOURCE Commercial Real Estate announced today that the two companies will combine their teams, creating the largest, independent, locally owned full-service commercial real estate firm in Indiana.

Founded in 1978, Bradley Company has nine offices across Indiana, Michigan and Ohio. RESOURCE Commercial Real Estate has utilized an advisory approach in serving its clients from an Indianapolis office since being co-founded in 2005 by Sam Smith and Tom Osborne.

“Our companies share a fierce entrepreneurial spirit, a commitment to excellent client service, and a culture of teamwork that ultimately benefits our clients and the communities where we live and work,” said Brad Toothaker, president and CEO of Bradley Company. “We both view our independent ownership as a key strength, because we can move quickly and creatively to serve our clients, while adapting in a way that meets their specific needs.”

Bringing the two companies together is expected to grow market share and client services for both firms. Bradley Company and RESOURCE each offer customized services that span the commercial real estate spectrum. Their key strengths in brokerage and property management will complement the other across a powerful regional platform, ultimately providing lasting value for clients.

Principal Sam Smith, presently the Chairman of RESOURCE, will lead the Indianapolis regional office with support from Jon Hardy, principal of Bradley Company. Hardy currently leads Bradley’s platform service for its commercial brokerage line of business. Smith and Hardy bring a combined 60 years of experience in the central Indiana commercial real estate market to their respective roles.

RESOURCE Principals Beth Patterson, Brian Wahl, Kevin Dick, Jeffrey Merritt, and Tom Osborne will become Principals of Bradley Company and continue to play key roles within the newly combined Central Indiana team. More than 40 RESOURCE real estate professionals will join Bradley Company.

“Joining Bradley Company creates a number of synergies that will benefit our clients while accelerating our collective growth in this ever-changing real estate environment,” said Sam Smith, co-founder of RESOURCE Commercial Real Estate. “Bradley Company offered RESOURCE and our clients instant access to best of class property management services and technology. At the same time, our strong brand presence in this market will be enhanced by these strengthened services. We are looking forward to being one team and getting to work.”

The acquisition is part of Bradley Company’s broad expansion plan, boosting its brokerage team by 30 commercial brokers in the Indianapolis market. In 2018, Bradley Company acquired the former X Ventures in Grand Rapids and in 2019 expanded into the Cincinnati market.

This week Mike Drew, RESOURCE Senior Vice President, answered a few questions so we could learn more about him. Check it out below!

Why did you go into commercial real estate?

“When I was a student at Indiana University, my student counselor told me at the beginning of junior year that I would have to pick a major during my next semester. I walked out of his office and went next-door to the Real Estate Department to pick up literature about that major. My dad owned several single-family rental homes, so those rental homes sparked my interest in the real estate business. The move to Commercial was a choice I made because I preferred working business hours versus evenings and weekends in single-family.”

What is your favorite way to spend a weekend?

“Visiting with family & friends, walking, reading, driving, & restaurant meals. Working outside in the yard during this time of year is great too!”

What is your favorite part of your job?

“Working with interesting people (property owners & investors) and helping them solve problems and accomplish their goals.”

Commercial real estate is never really what comes to mind when people first think about real estate. Most people I talk to jump to the idea of a big house and rarely ever consider the open lot, or the strip center downtown. Ultimately, commercial real estate is a highly underrated industry, making it the cornucopia for the business-minded. It is basically a wild west, untamed and full of potential, especially for younger generations.

There is a proliferation of information available for free on the internet. Whether you are buying a refrigerator or a house it is possible to learn a lot about pricing while you are still in your pajamas. Zillow is fast becoming one of the first stops for buyers and sellers of homes.

I am pleased to present the 2018 RESOURCE Semi-Annual Market Report, prepared by our outstanding research and marketing teams. Our annual report provides insight into the commercial real estate activity in the Central Indiana market.

This comprehensive tax bill has a variety of components that a ect both the single-family and commercial/multifamily industries. The bill preserves the ability to deduct up to $10,000 in property taxes and also preserves the mortgage interest deduction for both rst and second homes (though the cap on deductibility was lowered to $750,000).

From “Gettin’ in the Zone Hats” to weekly trainings, RESOURCE is honored to announce it is one of the 125 Best Places to Work in Indiana!
