Broker Tour Showcases Frederick as a Most Valuable Place

Nearly 50 commercial real estate professionals attended the 2015 Commercial Realtor Bus Tour on November 5, 2015.  The sports-themed tour showcased Frederick, Maryland as the "Most Valuable Place" for locating a business and offered a glimpse at the various office and retail opportunities available in Frederick County. Commercial brokers from both the Frederick market and the Washington metropolitan area were in attendance.  

The commercial broker community serves as a vital economic development partner.  Brokers actively market Frederick as a business destination and often serve as the first point of contact in the Frederick community for prospective businesses.  In addition to highlighting available real estate spaces, the tour offered the opportunity for City and County economic development staff to highlight redevelopment opportunities and public infrastructure investments. 

City of Frederick Economic Development Director Richard Griffin highlighted several commercial corridors within the City including Downtown Frederick, Riverside Research Park, Thomas Johnson Drive, and the Golden Mile.

The day kicked off at the Frederick Visitor Center. Opening remarks were made by Frederick County Executive Jan Gardner, City of Frederick Mayor Randy McClement, County Director of Economic Development Helen Propheter, and Tourism Council Executive Director John Fieseler. 
The event was organized by the Frederick County Office of Economic Development and sponsored by Avison Young, Matan, Jefferson Place, St. John Properties, Rockpoint Commercial, CIM, Frederick Indoor Sports Center, Frederick Land Company, and Hill Management.
