Relationships are fundamental to the success of our business.

“While serving as Chief Operating Officer of Invitation Homes, the Spencer team was an instrumental force in the formation of IH’s corporate real estate standards, processes and branding. They are great under pressure with short timelines and tight deadlines to not only meet, but exceed our expectations and provide excellence in every area. Spencer was able to adapt to our rapid growth and continual changes over the past two years, while keeping in mind the future needs of the organization in addition to saving us well over $2 million. They have truly been an asset to our team and without their hard work and dedication, our corporate real estate strategy would not be where it is today.”

Marcus Ridgway, Former COO, Invitation Homes 

“We hired Spencer in March of 2007 as the company was undergoing significant changes to its organizational structure including the acquisition of six other industry leaders and a corporate headquarter relocation. Throughout the ongoing relationship, Spencer has ensured that RRG’s real estate initiatives were always directly aligned with its multi-faceted business strategy.

The Spencer team has developed and implemented multiple phases of a company growth plan and  a continually evolving corporate real estate structure for RRG including the following:

  • Outsourced CRE executive
  • Process and procedure development
  • Leases located, stored, and administered in one central location
  • Companywide lease audit
  • National branding standards
  • Project management throughout the country
  • Corporate sustainability standards
  • Headquarters relocation strategy and implementation

To date, RRG has realized a total savings of $10.3 million as a direct result of Spencer‘s engagement.  Kathy Mulgrew and her team have far surpassed RRG’s expectations nationwide for its CRE services, business strategy development and brokerage relationship implementation. Although we re-bid this service every few years, we continually find that no other company stacks up to the depth of expertise Spencer offers nor the quality of services they provide that come along with their single-point-of-contact business philosophy for all CRE needs. I strongly recommend Spencer and their unique approach to corporate real estate.”

Walt Smith, Former Chief Executive Officer, Riverstone Residential Group

“I was extremely pleased with the service we received from Spencer. Kathy and her team really assisted us long before our actual move. We had interim space issues that she assisted in solving. I really enjoyed working with Spencer.”

Rachel Purcell, Former Chief Financial Officer, Riverstone Residential Group

“I am full of praise for Spencer and its team, particularly Kathy and Chaz, whom are true, knowledgeable professionals. I love the hands-on and proactive approach of providing weekly updates and recommendations.  They have exceeded all of my expectations and cost savings were substantial, especially in regards to the renegotiation of leases.  I would highly recommend Spencer for managing your corporate real estate portfolio.”

Lisa Ellis, Former Managing Director, Greystar

“While serving as the CEO of Riverstone/CAS Partners, the nation’s largest third-party multi-family management company, I had the opportunity to work with Spencer Consulting Inc.  We hired Kathy and her team and they have had the contract since 2008.  We had offices in 31 states and had a very complex structure.  They have provided the strategic insight, the focus and the leadership we needed during this time of rapid growth and re-branding. Kathy actually became a key member of our Executive team and had a seat at the table in strategic planning for all real estate and facility related decisions.  In their role as an outsourced real estate department, Spencer illuminates why such a structure is significant. They provide efficiencies, a single point of contact, valuable resources and implemented a methodology for decision-making that ties corporate real estate decisions directly to enhancement of business objectives. Don’t let their size scare you away.  Their customized service and ability to quickly scale up or down depending on the client need, far exceeds their larger competitors.  I have dealt with many of the larger firms running previous companies, and have paid much more for in-house real estate teams, and I found them to lack the responsiveness and personalized service that Kathy and the team demonstrate.  Furthermore, Spencer negotiates with prowess and delivered an inventory management approach that saved us money and kept us not only informed but well managed and in control. I strongly recommend Spencer for your corporate real estate needs.  You will not be disappointed.

Toni Portmann, Former Chief Executive Officer, Consolidated American Services

Spencer was a great addition to the MetroPCS project. Kathy has a great way of bringing parties together and aligning them. Spencer‘s role helped us focus on a successful transaction.”

TESTIMONIAL: “You guys were so great to work with.”

Brian Ofenlock, IT Project Coordinator, Snelling Staffing and Intrepid USA

Spencer has been a constant in a state of change for us. Over the past several years, we’ve changed directions with respect to our real estate relocation efforts not only once, twice or three times, but maybe a hundred times! All along the way, Spencer has been there to help us adapt to the new plan. Spencer has been patient with us and given us multiple options to evaluate. We look forward to a long standing relationship with the team at Spencer.”

Lara Dulaney, Vice President of Finance, Thomas Nelson Live Events

Spencer Consulting far exceeded our expectations in helping us find a new home for our national Call Center. From beginning to end Kathy and Chaz were stars; they answered or found answers to every question; they were very strong advocates for us in every aspect and every part of the process. Their expertise in real estate strategy and their experience and wisdom, combined with just being smart, was evident in helping solve problems and work through the negotiating process every step of the way. And, they did it all with a beautiful spirit and good humor. We’ve upgraded our space, increased the size and are saving money in the process. What more could we ask for? Next real estate need we have we’ll definitely call on Spencer. Thank you for making this move possible and as pain-free as it could be.”

Larry Sonnenburg, President, New Life Ministries

“Kathy undertook a very challenging real estate project for us, identified several viable site options, and them competently and thoroughly negotiated a very favorable lease deal for my company.  Throughout the process, Kathy was attentive and responsive…a real pleasure to work with.  Her personal attention to our unique requirements made the difference between getting the best alternative at the best cost, and settling for something less than acceptable.”


Ken Kundmueller, President, FreedomPark

“At iNek, we help our clients achieve their strategic goals and profit from the use of information technology. Spencer has done the same thing for us by using real estate as a tool to achieve our goals.  From our first days in Dallas, Spencer has provided us with unparalleled real estate advice – Counsel that has lined up squarely with our corporate growth and profit goals.”

Aruna Madali, Chief Executive Officer, iNek

Spencer understood that we were focused on smart growth.  They came in as part of our board consulting team and proved to have a deep knowledge of real estate. Kathy, in particular, demonstrate herself to be a calming influence, working through difficult negotiations and keeping us on-track.  She is very proactive. Today, we are in the exact location we wanted to be in.”

Kevin Wallace, President, Wallace Design Group

“We’ve had the pleasure of working with Kathy on two real estate transactions for our growing business in the past 8 months.  She has been extremely professional, courteous, and has worked diligently to represent OUR interests.  She kept us informed throughout each step of the negotiations, and I would not hesitate to have Kathy represent us again, or recommend her to any business needing professional representation for their real estate needs.”

Mark Volpe, Chief Operating Officer, Telpro Technologies

“Kathy has outstanding professional skills, combined with honesty and integrity. She is efficient and thorough in her dealings with the various parties and represents us well. I would have no hesitation in using her on our future properties or recommending her to other property owners.”

Bill Dotson, Vice President, LandPlan Development

Spencer‘s knowledgeable and strategic approach to our real estate position was invaluable in the decision making process and gives us the ability to establish financial stability in the short term while building flexibility for us in the long term.”
