Public Sector

With decades of experience in the Public Sector real estate market, Apex Real Estate Partners has a distinctive approach to working within the government and non-profit sectors. Apex aligns a deep industry perspective with an expansive network of property owners, tenants, landlords, collaborators, and civic and cultural leaders to identify a broad portfolio of opportunities within the regional market.

In contrast to our competition Apex is a local, minority-owned business, with a commitment to diversity, equity, sustainability, and shared prosperity which reinforces our community-based values. We stand proud on the pillars of our reputation, credibility, transparency, and our long-standing relationships within the industry and our community. 

Our collaborative and entrepreneurial culture supports long-term partnerships to achieve strategic and holistic decisions in support of an organizations’ vision. Your success is our success. Decisions made in your best interest are in the best interest of the community in which we live and work.

As a locally owned, independent business, 100% of Apex revenue stays within the region. Also, when you work with Apex, you in turn support the local, minority and women owned businesses with whom we collaborate. We believe that these factors, which stimulate the local economy, distinguish us from the competition and reinforces our commitment to the enrichment of the communities in which we live and work.


Attuned to the complexities inherent in working with government entities to achieve their strategic objectives, Apex has a demonstrated track record in working within the Public Sector and a firm understanding of:

  • Public sector structure, process, and lease requirements
  • General Services Administration policies and guidelines

Past and current clients include: City of Portland, Prosper Portland, Port of Portland, Portland Public Schools, City of Salem, Metro, State of Oregon, University of Oregon, Portland Community College, Portland State University and Oregon Health and Science University.


Nonprofit or public sector organizations often have a unique set of objectives in which strategic real estate decisions can support and enhance the overall mission of the organization. Apex engages in a collaborative, decision making process with its clients. Understanding the complexity of the organization – where you are in relation to where you want to advance is an important conversation to explore. This is where the Apex approach to partnership excels. Understanding your vision reinforces successful real estate decisions.

Past and current clients include: Fora Health (formerly DePaul Treatment Centers), Cascade AIDS Project, Native American Rehabilitation Association NW, Pacific Northwest College of Art, Museum of Contemporary Craft, and the Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education.
