Farbman Group Gains Top Honor in new Detroit Free Press Commercial Real Estate Companies Category

Farbman recognized in five additional categories in 2020 edition of Freep’s annual Best of the Best awards

No matter what business you are in, awards and recognition are always gratifying. When it’s your clients, peers, and fellow professionals in the community making the selection, being honored is extra meaningful. That’s why Farbman Group’s recent inclusion in six different categories in the Detroit Free Press Best of the Best awards is so special to us.

Detroit Free Press Best of the Best Detroit Awards is a program that identifies, recognizes, and celebrates the very best community businesses across the region. The list of Best of the Best honorees is a roll call of organizations widely recognized for being the finest in the area and consistently demonstrating exceptional services. The awards are sorted into 15 individual categories, and winners are subsequently chosen by members of the community.

This is the first year the Detroit Free Press has honored a commercial real estate company in its Best of the Best program. Farbman’s selection as not just one of the best commercial real estate companies, but the best commercial real estate company in the market is an extraordinary honor. To be the inaugural winner in this important new category is not just rewarding, but feels like a validation of the Farbman model.

As our CEO Andy Farbman makes clear, that model is about the passion of our people and their collective dedication to their craft. It’s the basis for Farbman’s meticulous approach, attentive service, and personalized, hands-on management approach. Fundamentally, it’s about valuing people, and the personal and professional connections we forge with them. Andy recently stated that “Farbman’s ability to exceed expectations of service and professionalism as one of the best commercial real estate companies in Detroit comes from valuing client relationships above all else.”

Best Commercial Real Estate Company

It’s not a coincidence that, in addition to being named Best Commercial Real Estate Company, Farbman was also named Best Place to Work, Best Benefits Program, Best Company Culture, and Most Innovative Workplace, along with a personal honor for our CFO, Chris Chesney, who was named Best Accountant.

Winning in six different categories is indicative of the strong and connected culture we have cultivated here at Farbman, a place where employees are treated as valuable members of the Farbman team—and where we value our ability to form rewarding long-term partnerships with clients. That culture and those people-first priorities help generate the results and relationships that creates bottom-line satisfaction from clients, tenants, owners and investors.

While Farbman has done business across the region and the nation, we are a Detroit company with Detroit roots. We pride ourselves on knowing and serving our hometown market with special diligence and consistent excellence. To be recognized in this way as one of the area’s best commercial real estate companies by such an iconic Detroit media outlet is both a testament to our people, and a strong sign that the very best is yet to come.
