"I would like to thank the leasing team of Mike Lowe, Jeremy Kraus, Doug Whitten and Tim
Schenke at CBRE for their outstanding job in helping us establish our brand in Greater Cincinnati.
In the last four years, we have successfully completed over 2.6 million SF of new leases in our
newly constructed or renovated bulk distribution space. They have been instrumental in
providing guidance from pre-development through execution of client leases. Their strong work
ethic, collective knowledge in institutional leasing, and “roll up your sleeves” attitude have
helped us immensely. Based on our prior experience, we recently hired them again to help with
our local development; our 1.07 million SF Aero Commerce Center in Florence, KY. I would
recommend their team and services to any industrial developer/owner looking to stabilize their
assets in Greater Cincinnati."
Kurt Nelson, Hillwood
"Doug Whitten has worked with NorthPoint for many years as a landlord representative. He
provides years of professional expertise that help us maintain our goal to go beyond the
contract in managing deals with current and new clients. The past several years are a reflection
of the similar business practices that NorthPoint shares with Doug; he is honest, transparent and
an ambitious professional providing a collaborative but simple negotiation in order to service
the business needs of the client."
Brent Miles, Chief Marketing Officer, Northpoint Development
"I wanted to personally say thank you to you both for your help and assistance in the warehouse
lease of 65 Northland Boulevard for Quaker Houghton in Waterloo, Canada. The process and
transition went extremely well in the short period of time we needed to support the business.
The warehouse is working out well and meeting the business needs. If either of you ever need a
reference to another client, I would be happy to provide. Thank you again!" Mark Leach, Procurement Manager, Indirects US/Canada, QUAKER HOUGHTON
