The Little Firm That Could

By
Commercial Real Estate Agent with Contour Investment Properties

Contour Properties closed more commercial transactions than all the other companies combined.We started our firm in May 2008, just as it became apparent that the real estate market had crashed. The firm we left, Real Estate of Jackson Hole, filed for bankruptcy in December 2008.

2008 was a struggle, and 2009 wasn't any better. But all that hard work paid off, as our new company, Contour Investment Properties, captured 52% of the commercial transactions market share in Jackson Hole (Teton County, WY) in 2010.

Turns out it wasn't a fluke...we did it again in 2011!

Call Contour Properties for your commercial needs in Jackson Hole. We lease and sell more office, retail, and warehouse property than all the other real estate companies combined. We love what we do, and our focus means results.

That's truly inspirational and I bet KW Commercial would welcome your go gettum attitude with open arms.

And then you could be working for the only real estate company in the world where you have a perpetual income stream long after you quit working.

Good for you, Doug! It was the right decision for us too.

Thanks for the offer Kevin, but I own the company...don't see myself returning to working for someone else.

Mary, it's not even hard work, because we love what we do.

Hi Tim -- talk about productivity!   Contour Investment  Properties certainly seems to have re-defined the word for commerical real estate in the Jackson Hole WY area.  Nicely done especially in what many say is the most difficult real estate market in a long time.

Well done Tim! Small business can do more than simply survive but thrive!  I opened my own doors to Albuquerque Homes Realty up against near 4,000 local Realtors.  I'm  still in there and going not as strong as in 2006 but still in the black and seeing light at the end of the drought!  Yeah... for we little guys :)

Tim - this is something to be really proud of (besides being proud for your children, of course). In 2009 there was a time when we were not sure we will survive the seasonal dry spell. We barely made it. I am still cautious, even though we had our 2011 best year after the crazy market of 2006
