Thomas Nieman, a licensed commercial real estate agent since 1977, possesses a diverse background in brokerage, development and management. Mr. Nieman worked with Del E. Webb Corporation in Arizona through 1983, responsible for resort properties management, office building leasing and management. Having joined Grubb & Ellis Company in 1983, to specialize in retail properties, Mr. Nieman was subsequently recruited to Florida by JMB/Federated Realty and was responsible for retail leasing throughout the east and southeast United States. Returning to Tucson in 1987, he became the General Manager and Leasing Representative for Foothills Mall, owned by Eastdil Realty Advisors. Between 1992 and 1995, Mr. Nieman pursued professional ultradistance bicycling opportunities and after setting three national records and a world record, re-entered the commercial real estate market. Mr. Nieman joined PICOR in September of 1995, focusing on the office, medical and investment markets and became a Principal in 2001. He excels in providing the best solutions to the real estate requirements of developers, landlords, tenants and investors and utilizes the same energy and persistence from his cycling experience in achieving his client’s goals.
