In 1993, young entrepreneurs Rob Coatsworth and Kevin Murray found themselves at a crossroads. They had spent years working for firms that represented both tenants and landlords, and recognized a potential conflict of interest while trying to best represent the client. They envisioned creating a firm with a singular focus on tenants — to offer a better commercial real estate experience — and CTR was born.
CTR stood for Corporate Tenant Representation, and that remains the focus of the firm today. Over the past two decades, the processes have changed and improved as the firm has grown; but at the heart of the organization is a calling to serve others in a way that honors “the ultimate landLORD” — our Creator God. This method of serving others also builds stronger relationships and connections that benefit everyone over time.
