The Piken Company is one of the most well-known commercial real estate firms in Southern California. The company currently manages and provides brokerage services for numerous retail, office, industrial & apartment properties in the region. It represents a variety of sellers, buyers, landlords and tenants.
Robert M. Piken is the president and owner of The Piken Company. As a California Licensed Real Estate Broker, he directs the company’s brokerage business. He also oversees the other company functions. CEO Herbert M. Piken has developed a multitude of commercial properties, many of which are still owned and managed by Piken. Herbert remains active in the business, and is an invaluable mentor to agents at the firm. The Piken Company’s corporate headquarters are located in Los Angeles, California. The Company’s many sales, leasing and property management professionals provide personalized real estate services to many satisfied clients.
The company’s hundreds of millions of dollars in retail, restaurant, office, apartment and industrial sale and rental transactional commitments and high occupancy rates attest to the aggressiveness of its agents and staff. While The Piken Company has extensive national contacts and relationships, the firm has the ability as a regional hands-on company to provide management and brokerage services often superior to those offered by less focused conglomerates. Because its officers also hold ownership positions in various properties, they are better able to sell, lease and manage real estate from a principal’s perspective. This ability distinguishes the company from competitors. In keeping with its high professional standards, The Piken Company continually educates itself relative to the marketplace to determine the appropriate sales prices and leasing rates in the areas that it serves. Its agents also keep themselves well-informed about which national, regional and local tenants are seeking to lease space in these areas.
