Realtor named to 'Commercial Real Estate Hall of Fame'
A realtor in the area is now a hall of famer.
David Denton, VP of real estate brokerage at Plainfield Township-based DAR Development, has been inducted into Midwest Real Estate News’ 2018 "Commercial Real Estate Hall of Fame."
Out of the 80 Midwest commercial realtors in the class, Denton is the lone one from West Michigan.
“It’s a great recognition of almost 20 years of hard but fun work,” Denton said. “This business has got a lot of challenges, but it’s built around great people, and every day is different. Every project is different. … And it just really plays to my abilities really well. I get bored if I’m doing the same thing all the time.”
Denton represents local and national landlords in the development, leasing and sale of various retail properties, including big-box power centers, grocery-anchored developments and neighborhood centers. He also has extensive experience analyzing and executing out lot development and leasing deals.
Denton has spent 19 years in commercial real estate and served as president of the Commercial Alliance of Realtors, or CAR, in 2016 and president of the CCIM Michigan chapter in 2015.
He also earned the 2017 Realtor of the Year award from CAR and the 2017 National Association of Realtors National Award for Outstanding Achievement in the commercial real estate industry.
Midwest Real Estate News is a publication owned by RE Journals. Every year, the magazine runs its "Commercial Real Estate Hall of Fame" issue, honoring the top commercial real estate professionals working throughout the Midwest.
