“I have been very pleased with the way that Northstar’s team interfaced with ours. I know that everyone on our team was very pleased to have Northstar as the Landlord for our move. This was a very difficult time frame in a building with some endemic challenges, and everyone was able to jointly fire on all cylinders and achieve our occupancy. I appreciate all of your team’s efforts.”
Mr. Dustin Whistler
Vice President, Fuller Real Estate

“The Northstar team provided our family business with an investment opportunity we think provides us with a lot of upside potential.”
“I have known Brian Watson for many years, and have invested in multiple transactions with him. Even though I reside in Nashville, TN, and the Northstar Team is in Denver, I feel extremely confident in their ability to perform, their honesty and transparency, and their responsiveness. Their focus is always on putting their co-capital partners first. I look forward to growing my investment relationship with Northstar for many years to come!”
“I have known Brian Watson since he was a college student at the University of Colorado at Boulder, when he was an intern for me in my real estate investment company. Brian was a quick study in the business, and I was pleased to help fund his first commercial real estate investment when he left Cushman & Wakefield of Colorado, where he was a very successful commercial real estate broker. Since that first investment over 16 years ago, Brian and I have Invested in numerous properties together and have made great returns on almost every deal we did. I am not normally one to invest in partnerships, but Brian has the ability to come up with very unique and interesting properties that have substantial upside potential, and Northstar has proven to be a great management company.”
“I have known Brian Watson as a commercial real estate colleague for over 20 years.
I admired his tenacity and entrepreneurial spirit when he ventured off on his own to start Northstar Commercial Partners, leaving behind a successful brokerage career at Cushman & Wakefield. He seemed to have a keen eye for unrealized value, turning around overlooked assets.
But it was only recently that I had the good fortune to work directly with Brian as his leasing agent when he purchased Cherry Creek Place I. Brian hit the ground running, making smart value-add improvements to the property literally in the first week after closing. As a result, interest in the property grew, and because of his responsive win/win deal-making approach, we have leased 47,000 sf in 6 months. Occupancy has climbed from 69% to 81%, and the property is well positioned to continue to appreciate through leasing success.
As a broker, it is a pleasure to work with an owner who “gets it”, treating tenants as valued clients not an adversarial party. I look forward to working with Brian for years to come.”
