The           Story

Since 1994, The Pigman Companies (TPC), under the leadership of its founder Kris Pigman, has been an innovator and leader in the field of commercial real estate development.  Our track record includes the acquisition, financing, entitlement, development, construction, investment, and management of office, industrial, flex, manufacturing, R&D and retail projects in addition to development of large tracts of land in multiple northern California and Arizona markets.  From standard concrete-tilt industrial buildings, to custom Class ‘A’ Corporate Headquarters, to highly-specialized research and development facilities, TPC shepherds distinctive projects with challenging scopes and complexities to successful fruition.


TPC creates value for its partners and clients through the development and management of high-quality environments, whether improving and repositioning under-utilized properties, providing ground-up development services, or by using operational expertise and vision to minimize risks and maximize returns from under-performing assets.  While acting as fiduciary to its customers and investors, The Pigman Companies can respond to opportunities quickly and astutely, using its time-tested experience and broad resources to maximize return on investment for its clients and partners.


The current maladies affecting the commercial real estate market force even the most seasoned veterans to evolve, mutate, or die.  Responding to the changes that affect all aspects of our collective efforts to navigate through dramatic and frenetic market transformations, TPC continues to prevail as a source of experience, aptitude, and resources…ingredients necessary to make well-informed, prudent business decisions.  TPC is unique.  From a single source, we have the ability to focus the talents of multi-disciplined professionals with established development, finance, construction, asset management, property management, disposition, and receivership expertise to undertake a multitude of tasks. With a single engagement, our partners and clients benefit from our principal’s well over three decades of market-tested, proven proficiency capable of satisfying a myriad of real estate requirements.

Today’s business environment makes the development of customized corporate and industrial facilities essential.  The growing demands on corporate staff — plus the increasing complexity, risk, cost, and time for project approvals, financing, and multi-jurisdictional government permitting — make teaming with TPC  more logical than ever before.


TPC assists our clients and partners with both strategic and transactional services, with the specific objectives of maximizing real estate asset values, minimizing real estate risks and costs, and ensuring that real estate transactions are conceived and implemented in a manner consistent with long range strategic, operational, and financial goals. TPC provides support services required for achieving improved productivity, refined operational efficiency, reduced occupancy costs, and enhanced investment performance.


A truly integrated development process is not linear; it does not begin with a conceptual program, move to design, transfer to engineering, progress to finance, shift to construction, and conclude in a market driven solution.  Instead, the process TPC utilizes involves “thinking simultaneously”: solving architectural/engineering, construction and financial issues with sensitivity to current fair market constraints.  Our simultaneous process is a method that allows our development teams to meet strict budgets and schedules in an ever-changing economy, develop projects that are functionally, physically and economically viable for the long term, and create environments for excellence that satisfy the most discerning, design-conscious clients and users.


TPC has been both a leader and a vital member of a number of successful joint ventures with major institutions, landowners, public agencies and other service providers.  Because of our understanding of the history and trends of local and national real estate markets, TPC can provide valuable counseling and value creation - at any given time and place.
