HAPO reached out to Derrick in 2014 to help fill 15,000SF of vacant space in the HAPO Business Complex, “The flashcube.” Derrick was able to leverage his local market connections to field strong office prospects capable of striking deals. He collaborated with HAPO to form space plan ideas for their own space needs for the future while also keeping the property nimble of market deals. He hosted a 125 person “Brokers Open” to the Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce that highlighted all the HBC had to offer. Bringing new people into the building, creating awareness and built inertia. He utilized his strong listing portfolio to grab prospects and was able to lease to the following: Aerotek, MMEC, Taggares Fruit Company, Valbridge Property Advisors, Homestart Advisors, Riverstone Property Management.
I've worked with Derrick Stricker for the past three years as we leased out nearly 10,000 SF of commercial space at HBC. Derrick's creative and aggressive approach to bring prospective tenants to the table has resulted in nearly 100% occupancy. I found Derrick to think out of the box as deals got shaped for success. Derrick's deep connection throughout this regional market provided great exposure as well have his strong community involvement with the Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce and Board of Realtors. Derrick has my strongest endorsement and will continue to be my broker of choice as new space becomes available in the future.
