Sperry Commercial Global Affiliates Adds Franchise in Walnut Creek, CA

Walnut Creek, CA (November 2, 2017) – Sperry Commercial Global Affiliates has announced that Trimark Commercial Real Estate, based in Walnut Creek, CA, has joined as the latest franchise office in the Bay Area. Trimark Commercial Real Estate is under the direction of Mark Hinkins CCIM, FRICS, President and Managing Broker.

Trimark handles acquisition and disposition of all commercial investment property and leasing services for landlords and tenants, offering a locally-focused, experienced and hands-on approach to solving and meeting investor, landlord and tenant real estate needs. Founded in 2016, the firm is now collaborating with the Sperry Commercial Global Affiliate network to expand its Bay Area footprint in 2018.

“I joined Sperry Commercial Global Affiliates to leverage the business partnerships and technology it provides, which is especially compelling for an independent brokerage office. Now as a franchise, my team can take advantage of the technology platform and expanding regional network, especially as we look to recruit and expand significantly in the Bay Area in 2018,”said Hinkins.

Trimark’s sales and leasing professionals will now utilize the most up-to-date commercial real estate technology available to provide targeted marketing solutions for office, industrial, high street retail, shopping centers, medical office, land, multi-family, NNN, special use and mixed-use properties across the San Francisco Bay Area.

An industry leader, Hinkins, who earned the prestigious Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation in 2010, recently received the 2017 Susan J. Groeneveld Award of Excellence, given during each program year to the participant from the CCIM Leadership Academy who receives the most votes from their peers in three leadership categories. CCIM Institute is commercial real estate’s most influential professional organization.

“As the current economic cycle moves through the later stages of its expansion, we are at a turning point for commercial real estate services firms. Technology and changing business culture has freed the real estate professional from the need to rely on costly traditional brokerage office models, which has allowed them to become more entrepreneurial,” added Hinkins. “With increasing operating costs and sky-rocketing desk costs now commonplace at traditional corporate brokerage firms, there exists an opportunity for agents and brokers to join a platform of ‘independently owned and operated offices’ which are redefining commercial real estate brokerage through cost-effective agency methods, reduced desk-costs, increased connectivity, and the rapid absorption of new tools to stay ahead of the industry and to stay in-line with client trends.”

Hinkins also holds the designation of ‘Fellow’ with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, a professional body that accredits professionals within the land, property and construction sectors worldwide. With this expertise, Hinkins is heading up Sperry Commercial Global Affiliates agreement with a London, U.K based firm to explore marketing and strategic business between the United States, Asia and the United Kingdom and Europe.

The addition of Trimark marks the 20th franchise office to join Sperry Commercial Global Affiliates.
