Testimonials

Arrow has been like a business partner over the last five years. We have needed to take additional space multiple times as we have grown during that time frame. This required space planning, bidding and build out. Each time the process has been very smooth for our organization. Arrow has also been timely when dealing with any maintenance issues. I would highly recommend Arrow for your commercial building needs.

We have worked with Jeff Penfield and Arrow Companies for about two years now and they offer a complete package for our commercial real estate needs. Jeff has done a great job helping us find qualified tenants in our office condos and working on the deal from start to close. In addition, he is managing our condo association and makes sure everything on the buildings and grounds remain in perfect condition at all times. Lastly, as an investor he knows the western suburb market and always is providing sound investment opportunities for us to consider.

I have known Steve Fischer since 2009. He provided the leadership in putting together the process and execution in building Lifestyle Commons in Maple Grove. We are one of three businesses in the complex. Since the completion of the building, Steve and Arrow Companies have served as the property manager for the complex. Steve is a person of integrity. He does what he says he will do. Things get done right the first time. Our building project was completed on-budget and on-time. He continues to earn our business every day.

Greywolf Partners, Inc. has had a very successful relationship with Jeff Penfield as a broker for the past four years. Jeff has been a great partner to work with in finding tenants for the owners of the Waconia office building that we manage. We have reached 100% occupancy in the building thanks to the hard work and negotiating skills that Jeff displays. As vacancies occur, we will continue to look to Jeff to bring solid deals to the property.

We began working with Arrow in 2010 as we embarked on our strategy to become a multi-location company. Arrow has always taken the time to provide us with multiple options that fit our needs at the desired price points. They have done a great job with lease negotiation, tenant improvement, landlord management and designing the spaces to best fit our needs. They always make a point of putting the client first. I appreciate their flexibility, and would definitely recommend them to anyone who has real estate needs.

Arrow Companies has been very responsive to our needs, from the process of making our facility ready in time to move in, to resolving HVAC issues along the way, to helping put us in touch with skilled experts as we make improvements/updates to our office. Cliff Reithel, in particular, has always been quick to respond to our various requests, and does his job with a level of precision and quality where we are never concerned with the result.

I have been in the commercial real estate business for 40 years and have known Chad for more than 15 years and was not surprised when he and Steve Fischer ventured out on their own in 2004. Chad has been active in the northwest commercial real estate market in all the years I have known him. “Arrow Companies is the go to group” in this market area. They have developed strong relationships throughout the area. Chad is a man of high integrity, experienced in commercial real estate, a good communicator, pays attention to details and has built a strong staff to manage their business affairs. In the years I have come to know Chad I have come to appreciate his concern for his family, his business associates and I very often consult with him as to the beset manner to market our properties, set competitive prices and how to enter the market.

Integrity. Quality. Responsiveness. Value. These are the qualities that forge long-lasting business relationships. These are the hallmarks of Arrow Companies and its owners, Steve Fischer and Chad Weeks. Arrow Companies played a substantial role in bringing my entrepreneurial dream of owning commercial real estate to fruition. From concept, to paper, to execution, we now own three magnificent commercial buildings in the Minneapolis suburbs of Maple Grove, Plymouth and Coon Rapids. Steve, Chad and their diverse team made this herculean feat come together on-time and on-budget!

I have worked with Arrow Companies through commercial project development and general contracting. I also have a little experience with the company’s property management arm. I find the company to be responsive, diligent, and professional in every degree of their projects. The staff is friendly. Whenever I’ve had questions, they promptly answer them and provide any documentation the bank needs. Arrow Companies manages a project with experience, precision, and focus. I’ve had a great experience with Arrow Companies!

Knowledge, experience, connections, follow-through, and professionalism. These were characteristics important in our selection of one company to represent our need for commercial real estate property management, leasing, tenant improvements, and selling. Thankfully, Arrow Companies fulfilled our needs on all counts.

– NW Metro Commercial Real Estate Owner

I used Jeff Penfield as my commercial agent to assist me in securing new office space. He was recommended by a colleague of mine in Maple Grove. After visiting several locations, I settled on my present office space in Brooklyn Park. Jeff was immensely helpful in reviewing and revising the commercial lease, which needed many changes and additions. Although the property manager/owner was extremely slow in responding, we finally came to terms and signed the lease to my satisfaction. My new office is absolutely beautiful and I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. Jeff was invaluable in his role as my agent and very protective of my interests. I would highly recommend Jeff and Arrow Companies to anyone looking for commercial office space.

I have worked with Arrow Companies and Chad Weeks since 2011 for all of our commercial real estate needs. I began my real estate investment career working with Chad. He has not only been a mentor, but has played a key role in all of our commercial investment transactions. Chad is an integral part of our business. He has conducted landlord and tenant representation for our investment properties, and guided us through many purchase and sales transactions. Chad’s expert knowledge of the local Twin Cities market is second to none. He and the entire staff at Arrow Companies are highly recommended for any of your real estate needs.

I have been doing business with Arrow Companies for almost 11 years. Arrow not only provides excellent property management services for my company, but also administers the leasing of suites that become vacant. I am confident when I contract with them to provide leasing services that the marketing of my building is of the highest quality, and is filled in the shortest amount of time.

Jeff Penfield has sold three commercial properties for Security Bank & Trust. He was not only effective but a pleasure to work with.
