About Us

The best way to introduce you to ARK Commercial Real Estate is to discuss three key quotes that that are the foundation of our company’s Mission Statement: “We make it happen when you needed it yesterday.”

First: “The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.”
– Nolan Bushnell, founder of Atari and Chuck E. Cheese’s

At ARK Commercial Real Estate, today and every day, we are doers — that’s all
we know because we’re entrepreneurs.

Second: “People can be divided into three groups: those who make things happen, those who watch things happen, and those who wonder what happened.”
– John W. Newbern

Here at ARK Commercial Real Estate, we like to make things happen. It’s how
we do things around here so get used to it.

Third: “The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person who is doing it.”
– Chinese Proverb

Even though some may interrupt to say that a deal cannot be done because of the economy, time of year, competition, market conditions, and so on, we really don’t give a damn because we’re doing it.
