On this National Hamburger Day, we want to share our favorite hamburger with you – our Senior Vice President of Advisory and Management Services – John Hamburger.

The secret sauce to John’s success has been his longevity in the business. John has been in the commercial real estate industry for 55 years and has also practiced real estate law. He found his love for real estate as a kid as his dad Jack owned a construction company, Parliament Construction, where he could be found climbing around construction materials in their garage.

John joined the Signature Team in 2016 and has helped to increase our property management portfolio to 8 million square feet and 130 properties managed. Recently Signature’s Property Management Division acquired the management of a 141,952 square foot office building in Southfield and the 30,000 square foot Grand Commons Shopping Center in Commerce Twp.

Our Project Management Division recently completed the supersized build out and design of the approximately 180,000 square foot Veoneer headquarters in Southfield. They were so pleased with the outcome of the project that we were hired to assist with the renovation and partial addition of Autoliv’s headquarters in Auburn Hills.

Signature’s Advisory and Management Services Division has a vast menu of services and handles projects big and small, so how can we help you accomplish your real estate goals today? Learn more by visiting our website or feel free to reach out to John Hamburger directly.
