Our History & Philosophy

Local to International Reach

In May of 2005, Tom Ferguson, a leading industry veteran departed Grubb & Ellis – at the time, one of the largest real estate service firms in the world & one of Indiana’s top commercial real estate companies. Tom founded Premier Commercial Real Estate Services, LLC, to provide a client-oriented approach to commercial real estate, coupled with personal customer service.

With over 20 years of intellectual capital & experience in commercial real estate, Tom established a unique and successful approach to the commercial real estate culture of service & professionalism.

“Proactive solutions, born out of integrity has been our philosophy.”
