SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF. and SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. - February 11, 2016 - TradeAddresses.com, an established leader in generating commercial real estate transactions, successfully held their first "Connect the Tech" cocktail reception in San Francisco on January 28, 2016.
"Connect the Tech," held in partnership with the Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce, Scottsdale Economic Development team and Levrose Commercial TCN, focused on a discussion about why more and more San Francisco-based technology firms are choosing to expand their operations to Scottsdale. Over seventy attendees, including tenants, brokers, developers and service providers gathered at Dirty Water Restaurant and Bar in the Twitter HQ building to learn about the advantages of building a company in Scottsdale, including lower costs and access to a young and highly educated workforce.
"Commercial real estate properties move fast in the Bay Area, and suitable office space is becoming increasingly more difficult to come by despite rising rental costs," said Hans Hansson, featured TradeAddresses.com agent in San Francisco and the President, Principal and Founding Partner of Starboard TCN Worldwide. "Cities across the country, including Scottsdale, are lining up to address these high costs and the lack of space in the San Francisco market."
TradeAddresses was founded in 1990 by a highly experienced group of San Francisco commercial real estate veterans. The TradeAddresses website has been generating commercial real estate transactions since 1999. TradeAddresses has traditionally focused strictly on commercial real estate listings and has offered no additional services to listing agents.
In 2009, Hans Hansson of Starboard TCN decided to expand the site using a social media platform and combining commercial and high-end residential real estate listings within the same site. He enlisted Jim Osgood, the owner of OfficeFinder.com, and Carl Bosse, the owner of Associated Realty of the Americas - a network of high-end residential and commercial agents throughout North America - to partner together to reinvigorate TradeAddresses.
