TRI Commercial on a Hiring Spree

TRI Commercial Real Estate/CORFAC International is broadening its reach in the Sacramento region, having brought aboard nine new agents within the last few weeks at offices in Roseville and Point West.

This week, the company announced Steve Griffin, Greg Redman, Graham Clemons andRichard Smith, formerly of Grubb & Ellis, have joined the company, with plans to look for more, said company senior vice president and regional manager Ed Benoit. “In business, one thing I’ve learned is you always have room for good businessmen,” Benoit said, adding TRI’s structure is a good fit for veteran agents and brokers who have been with larger firms with a national presence. “Great agents attract great agents.” Benoit said a newly opened office in Point West, which has five agents with Griffin as head, could have as many as 20 eventually.

The company’s focus there and at offices in Roseville and Rocklin will be regional business and strong relationships with clients, he said. “If we have a good idea, we can execute it quickly,” he said. “We’re a destination for agents who look to themselves and their client relationships to be successful.”

In addition to the four agents from Grubb & Ellis, TRI Commercial/CORFAC International has
added Dennis Shorroch and Bruce Wirt of Cornish & Carey Commercial Newmark Knight
Frank, Drew Wheatley of Cassidy Turley, Bryan Wirt of Ethan Conrad Properties and Daniel
Dabkowski of Commercial Realty Group in Sausalito in recent weeks to its Sacramento-region

TRI also added two former Grubb & Ellis agents to its San Francisco office this week.
