  1. What are C&W Alliance Members?
    • The Cushman & Wakefield Alliance Members were established beginning in January 2002 to expand the company’s client services to major markets throughout the United States where the firm does not maintain an actual C&W office.
    • Cushman & Wakefield Alliance Member firms “consist of best-of-class independent companies.”
    • The Boerke Company was the 20th member of the Cushman & Wakefield Alliance.

  3. Why can’t you service me without the Alliance?
    A valid question, and if you are reading this, then you probably actually want to know the answer. When The Boerke Co was started in 1921, the humble beginnings were born of dedication, client satisfaction and market knowledge. None of this has changed, instead it has been expanded and enhanced with the invitation to join the Alliance in 2006. The global reach of our member providers is nothing less than world class. Slowly but surely, the Commercial Real Estate industry started to become less about borders, and more about reach. By 2006, we had clients either entering our market from other states or countries, or clients looking to expand across the US and globally. So much so, that we needed to do something…and we did “something” in a big way. Joining the C&W Alliance has been an incredible move, and it allows us to still service our clients in our area AND to continue doing what is right for our clients at all times. Cushman & Wakefield is still a privately owned company, keeping their focus on their client’s needs. Becoming a member of the Cushman & Wakefield Alliance allows us to expand upon what we have always done and continue to do best.
