Okay, so when people ask me what I do and I say “commercial real estate”, they typically respond with “ohhh” and then move on to someone else’s professional pursuits.  Admittedly, the daily processes involved with pulling together a good commercial real estate package can be mundane at times. But at its core, the industry is all about sharing information.  This is where the business becomes intriguing and fun; knowing what businesses are coming and going, contracting and growing, and how much it cost. On top of this, you get an unbelievable education on the types of niche’ businesses in the market (see our Piece of the PDX Pie monthly feature at the bottom).

Fascinating like the study of blackholes or earthworm reproduction, well no, but being behind the scenes of what makes Portland’s business environment tick is definitely cool. So, with this said, my partner and I thought we would share a little of the “behind the scenes” activity with readers.

For ease of use, we have created a few test indices (by industry) of various transactions in the Portland market.  We can add industries and welcome suggestions for other information/statistics you would find helpful or interesting.  Our intention is to update this information as it occurs, with this initial post reflecting transactions dating back to the beginning of the Third Quarter 2008 (July 1, 2008).

We have also included some market comps so that you can see where deals are being struck in the various submarkets of Portland/Vancouver.
