Commercial real estate is a thriving industry in Southern California. But within this competitive marketplace, there is one investment firm that stands apart for their innovative approach.
Inland Pacific is changing the way commercial real estate investments are made. While many other agencies follow a textbook approach, brokering deals for their clients, the team at Inland Pacific goes a step further – investing with their clients and becoming strategic partners. As a result, they have generated immense trust and respect within the industry while empowering their clients – and themselves – to win big on key investments.
It is their philosophy that truly sets them apart. Rather than simply providing real estate services, Inland Pacific fully aligns themselves with their clients’ comprehensive business strategy, becoming not merely a commercial real estate firm but an investment partner. Inland Pacific helps investors grow their asset values through strategic agency leasing representation and project management, offering their expertise through every step of the process.
Led by partners Chris Nelson, Sam Sukut, and Aidan James, Inland Pacific believes in a single team approach to leverage their talents and knowledge while maximizing opportunities for their clients. Each partner specializes in a different facet of the project process from acquisition, through maximization of value, to a stabilized product and ultimately a liquidity event.
“It is really rewarding to help people achieve greater wealth through real estate,” James says. “A lot of people don’t think they are capable of getting into real estate because it’s such a high-cost game, but it’s a lot more attainable than people think.”
One of the core aspects of Inland Pacific’s strategic partnership is education – walking business owners and investors through the process so that they can gain the greatest return on their investment.
“80 percent of what we do is education,” James says. “And the education often boils down to the numbers, helping them understand exactly how to maximize value. This goes far beyond the pure operation, to strategizing the intangible like depreciation, cost segregation, and tax savings.”
Sukut echoes that point of view, saying that unlike other real estate firms, they opened Inland Pacific with the express purpose of becoming not just industry experts but partners with companies throughout Southern California.
“From an investor’s perspective, we want to be as full service as possible and align our interests with our clients,” Sukut says. “It has provided us with flexibility and the ability to control our own destiny.”
For companies that are looking to make important investments in commercial real estate, there are no companies in San Diego and the surrounding areas that are operating at the level of Inland Pacific. From the start, they decided to do things differently in the industry – because of this, their clients are reaping incredible returns.
“We try to not be solely a transactional brokerage,” Nelson says. “The suite of services we provide is with the full intent to be able to integrate ourselves into all aspects of running the property and staying with you for every step of the project. We think that is a better way to have a well-rounded project, and to have a team behind you so the ball is never dropped in the execution.”
