Insight from Steve, Dan and Phil ...

“When you’ve accumulated the real estate experience we collectively have, you know intrinsically that relationships are everything and we are well-aligned with Partners in our commitment to being relationship driven,” said Steve. “We’re deeply grateful to the many folks in San Antonio that have trusted us to take care of their real estate needs time and again, and now that we can leverage the power of Partners’ platform, especially its project management, valuation advisory, property management, and development capabilities, our client service delivery will be the most all-encompassing and robust it has ever been.”

“Providence has been the opportunity of a lifetime for us. We built this company from the ground up, and we would never have achieved the success we did without our incredible clients,” said Dan. “We’re also thrilled to start this exciting next chapter in our careers, and partnering with the professionals at Partners—who are among the best folks we’ve ever met in our decades-long careers in the business—will ensure our customers receive the most exceptional real estate services available. We see the great future of Partners.”

“What really drew us to Partners was the people,” said Phil. “The company culture was apparent from the very first conversation. This is a group that genuinely enjoys being in business together and collaborating to ensure the firm’s clients’ every possible commercial real estate need is met. In many ways this is a continuation of what we’ve built at Providence, only at a much grander scale.”
