Wassik Named 2016 DMCAR Heavy Hitter Finalist

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

Another year and another award for Patricia Wassik, President of Health Connect Properties (HCP). Pat was named a 2016 DMCAR Heavy Hitters Finalist after taking second place in the small office category for two years in a row. This past year, Wassik completed $15,400,000 in transaction volume and completed 26 deals.

The competition recognizes Denver’s leading commercial real estate professionals – a group of which Wassik is no stranger.

In 2013, Wassik was recognized as Denver’s top producing small office broker and in 2015 she was also named the second place finalist.

Wassik was instrumental in leasing nearly 75% of the brand new MOB at 195 Inverness Drive West. The building – completed in April 2016 – houses Colorado Skin and Vein, PeakMed, and Rocky Mountain Labs. She also worked as the local tenant rep broker for Advanced Dermatology as the group opened a clinic in Cherry Creek. Pat continues to work at the head of the real estate team for the MOBs at both Cheyenne Regional Medical Center and Platte Valley Medical Center.

2016: Year in Review

Posted by | HCP News | No Comments

The Cubs won, Britain withdrew…and for the first time in company history, Health Connect Properties moved office locations! 2016 was a big year for all, indeed.

HCP did, in fact, say goodbye to 3400 Bayaud in Cherry Creek and opened our doors in downtown Denver at 999 18th Street. New staff members were welcomed to the HCP family with Lindsay Sullivan coming onboard as the Property Services Coordinator, Melissa Niswonger as Property Manager, and Patrick Flores as Property Accountant.

The brokerage arm of our company acquired several new listings including the expansion of our portfolio’s footprint to Thornton at 9461 Huron Street. We also ingratiated our presence even further in Grand Junction at 201 W. Park Drive. As listing brokers, Pat and Abby received signed leases at the grandiose Colorado Skin & Vein building at 195 Inverness as the building welcomed PeakMed and Rocky Mountain Labs to the mix. BoulderCentre for Orthopedics joined 1120 W. South Boulder Road in Lafayette, and HCP continued to administer and negotiate leasing at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center’s and Platte Valley Medical Center’s medical office buildings. Of notable tenant rep deals, HCP completed a 4,900 SF deal for Advanced Dermatology at 155 S. Madison in Cherry Creek.

On the property management side, Lincoln Hoffman was named the Director of Property Management – yay, Lincoln! Under his expert guidance, HCP introduced several new partnerships for our building owners. Refuse Specialists (trash brokerage), Aquicor (energy monitoring system), and Building Engines (work order management) contribute to our goal of reducing costs and maximizing property’s efficiency. The property management team oversaw a total of 800,000 SF, 22 buildings, and nearly 150 tenants this year.

Deb Carlson and Steve Floersch delivered Platte Valley Medical Center’s second MOB as the project management team. The 62,000 SF building welcomed its first tenant in March 2016. HCP managed the budget, vendors, and the project’s schedule along with our standard leasing responsibilities for the incoming tenants.

And with that, we thank our clients and colleagues for a wonderful 2016 – onward to 2017!

Health Connect Properties’s (HCP) Patricia Wassik has been recognized by the Denver Metro Commercial Association of Realtors in their annual Heavy Hitters competition. The competition, sponsored by the Denver Business Journal, recognizes top producers in the Denver commercial real estate market. In 2015, Wassik had the second most sales volume for small office brokers – trailing the category’s top broker by only $400,000. Her total of $22,299,547 led the next small office broker by over $6,000,000.

The honor is not a novelty for Wassik as HCP’s President was awarded the top recognition for small office broker in 2013 and continually proves to be a top producing healthcare broker in the Front Range region.

In 2015, her top deal included several leases for Platte Valley Medical Center. Her work extends to Cheyenne, Wyoming where she completed two transactions for Cheyenne Regional Medical Center; and Paladina Health, a quickly expanding employer-sponsored healthcare provider, found a location at Cornerstar Healthcare Plaza by way of Wassik’s guidance. Her expertise also extends to building sales as Wassik assisted in selling 991 Southpark Drive in Littleton for nearly $4 million.

Congratulations to Pat as she only adds more accolades to her extensive career in Colorado’s healthcare real estate market!
