In 1986, driven by an entrepreneurial spirit and visions of his own firm, John Ferguson founded Ferguson Properties, Inc. starting with a partnership to develop a 200-acre industrial park. That successful development led to many more, built on a commitment to quality, top-notch service and solid lasting relationships, many of which continue today.

Our company has evolved over the years and now exclusively specializes in the retail and hospitality sectors, providing Tenant Representation, Landlord Representation, Brokerage and Development.

We approach our clients, landlords and projects with a genuine belief in our core values:

  • Relationships
  • Honesty
  • Dependability
  • Hardworking
  • Experience
  • Creativity
  • Productivity

And above all else, we believe that success comes when we DO WHAT'S RIGHT for our clients and partners.

"Our reputation for first class development and tenant/landlord representation has everything to do with two things: one, the careful planning and attention to detail that we invest into each project, landlord or retailer; and, two, the immense pride we take in developing and representing with integrity, so that our efforts bring success and withstand the test of time."

- John Ferguson
