“Julie Johnson and Alexandra Loye are two of the most professional, qualified and diligent brokerage professionals with whom we have had the pleasure to work. With their extensive knowledge of healthcare services and relationships with healthcare providers as well as the Phoenix real estate market, we have confidently relied on their guidance and advice. In 2017, Alexandra and Julie were the listing brokers for the sale of the iconic Grunow Memorial Medical Center at 926 E. McDowell Road in Phoenix, when Meridian purchased the asset. It was Meridian’s entry into the Arizona market. Following the purchase, we retained Alexandra and Julie to continue the leasing assignment of this landmark historic 51,765-square-foot medical center. After Meridian acquired, they did an excellent job in leasing the asset and increased the building’s occupancy from 25 percent to 88 percent in just 18 months, far exceeding our underwriting expectations. In 2019, Meridian engaged Julie and Alexandra to recapitalize the property in a joint venture with an institutional investor. Our initial $4.9 million acquisition in 2017 resulted in recapitalization at $12.35 million. Throughout our association, they have exemplified the highest standards of ethics and exceptional hard work and knowledgeable service, with a clear desire to ensure our business objectives were met. We highly recommend Alexandra and Julie for your commercial real estate needs, whether acquisition, disposition or leasing.”—John Pollock, CEO, Meridian
“While listing our property, Julie proved she is honest, diligent and hard-working in the pursuit of her listing assignment. I found her opinion of the value of the property to be accurate and realistic. She is extremely diligent and works very hard in handling her listing-related duties. Julie put our interests ahead of her own and is a model in the execution of a broker’s fiduciary duties. I have been involved in commercial real estate for over 30 years and have had occasion to work with a significant number of real estate brokers. Julie is in a separate class and is head and shoulders above the rest of the pack. I would strongly recommend Julie in the handling of any listing (sale or lease).”—David Norouzi, Principal, Fenix Development, Inc.
“I have known and worked with Julie for several years. She has been in the healthcare field for over 25 years and worked with physician practices of all sizes, as well as corporate healthcare users and hospital systems. She is extremely knowledgeable and has a deep understanding of the Arizona medical real estate market. One of the projects we worked on together was the VA Outpatient Clinic in Gilbert, Arizona. She located ±9-acre sites to meet the needs of the VA and assisted in the selection and acquisition, providing valuable insights. Throughout the RFP process, we relied on Julie’s expertise to help secure the award. I am pleased to recommend Julie.”—Sean D. Cummings, Opus Development Company, L.L.C.
