We Make Things Better

Our clients count on us for a full spectrum of services that will meet their current and long-term needs.

Over four decades of experience have made us experts in all aspects of real estate development.

Portfolio

Our portfolio includes office, retail, apartments, and mixed-use properties located in urban and suburban markets.  We are actively exploring expansion  into new and existing markets where we can add value to current and future clients.

 Services

As a full-service company, we strive to provide better solutions for all of your real estate needs. We self-perform all of the critical functions of commercial real estate including property management, facilities maintenance, leasing, design, and construction management.

Hinman takes great pleasure in delighting their clients. They are always quick to respond, promptly address any questions or needs, and even follow up to make sure they have satisfactorily completed their work for us.

– Gary Carey, Regional Sales Director, Paycor, Grand Rapids

Leasing

Our process includes listening and learning about your needs, sharing our industry and market knowledge, and providing practical options for your consideration.  We seek your feedback throughout the process, refining your choices to deliver the right space, the right layout, and the right location, all at the right terms.  We also collaborate with our in-house design, construction, and property management teams to fulfill all of your leasing needs.

Design

Our experienced architectural designers can assist you with space plans and site plans to help you visualize new projects or renovations.  This in-house approach allows us to respond to changes quickly as ideas and choices are refined.

Property Management

Because we manage only properties in our own portfolio, we develop a deep understanding of each property’s physical aspects and inner workings. Many of our property managers have earned the internationally recognized designation of CERTIFIED PROPERTY MANAGER® or Certified Occupancy Specialist® , confirming them as experts in the field, and we collaborate with our peers in other markets to share our knowledge and best practices. As a further advantage, we leverage the scale of our portfolio to implement preferred pricing agreements with quality vendors.

After 7+ years of leasing office space from The Hinman Company, we remain very pleased and impressed with the attention to service and maintenance during the course of our tenure here.

– Anne van Leur, Leisure Living, Grand Rapids

Maintenance

A majority of the properties we manage are serviced by our in-house facilities maintenance team.  We are familiar with the buildings and systems, on call 24/7, and typically within a 5-10 minute drive of every facility. Work orders can be called in or entered via our proprietary online service request platform that provides immediate notification to our team so repairs are addressed promptly, the right way.  We take a proactive approach and provide prompt and courteous service when repairs are needed.

Construction

Our construction management team oversees most of our client improvement projects, capital repair/replacement projects, and in many cases, new construction.

Development

We develop and redevelop with a long-term hold philosophy.  For new developments, we prefer an inside-out approach, beginning with a focus on the end use or user’s requirements and enclosing them with great architecture that fits within its setting. We draw upon our experience with investments developed by other companies to identify potential stumbling blocks and help us avoid future problems. We continue to refine concepts as often as necessary until we are confident that we can provide the best solutions for all of the important details.

Build to Suit

If our current portfolio has no options that meet your needs, or you simply desire something new, we will work to  construct a solution that’s tailored specifically to your preferences, ideal location, and the level of involvement in decision-making that works for you.

Sustainability

We promote sustainable practices throughout our portfolio. We stay current on the latest trends and facts, educate our team and our clients, and have experience with LEED certification.

Learn & Grow

We strive to earn the highest levels of industry education and experience to serve you better. Our team includes CERTIFIED PROPERTY MANAGERS, Certified Leasing Specialists, Certified Commercial Investment Members,  CPAs, and other experts in their fields.
