Quarterly Report October 2021
This quarter, we are continuing to see historic demand and growth in the commercial real estate market. History in the making has been a theme consistent throughout more than just the market this past quarter. We watched from a block away as the Milwaukee Bucks took home the championship trophy for the first time in almost 50 years, and the victory parade passed right by our office before making its way back to the Fiserv Forum.
A little over a month later, the Barry Company achieved our own historical accolades at the annual awards dinner hosted by the Milwaukee County Historical Society. We received a plaque and were formally recognized for our 100th year in business. Neither the Barry Company nor the city of Milwaukee would be the same without each other’s contributions over the years and receiving this recognition at an event to raise money and further preserve Milwaukee’s history was a fitting culmination.
In addition to our recognition, one of our listings of three buildings received certification as official Milwaukee landmarks. The property consists of the Lion, Hawley and Bloodgood historic homes that have been connected and are now available for lease as office space. This well-deserved designation cements the houses as fundamental building blocks in the story of Milwaukee’s past.
As a family-owned company for three generations, the Barry Company understands that looking to momentous occasions in the past is crucial to building a profitable future. This quarter, we were fortunate to have taken part in several of those moments, both within our company and throughout the market, that we will look back on fondly for years to come.
