Our purpose

Enhancing the quality of life in the communities we serve

“Our clients – and the relationships that we’ve built together – have been key to Falcon’s growth. Many of our clients have been with us for 15-20 years and we see that as a clear indicator of our success.” – Tim Hughes, President/CEO

About Us

At Falcon, we’re always in pursuit of the ideal match. We exclusively work with retail, restaurant and entertainment tenants in real estate strategy, construction and development, marrying the big picture with the bottom line through a model of conscious business.

Because it’s not about making deals – it’s about making a difference in our cities and communities.

We build bridges

Where some see transactions, we see long-term investments. It’s an attitude that applies to every aspect of our firm, from our “quality over quantity” approach to our focus on community, and from our culture of collaboration to our lightning-fast responsiveness to clients. It’s all about making connections that make a difference.

We have an eye for the unexpected

Low-hanging fruit rarely translates into high returns. That’s why we look for less obvious opportunities, applying creative thinking and discerning judgment to hard data so we can capitalize on advantages others might be missing.
