When First Commercial Bank was asked to be the lead tenant in the redeveloping Southern Company Services building, they were already taking the lead in changing Birmingham’s banking industry.
“We thought banking should be personal, flexible and more about creating solutions than just profits. We saw the same philosophy being carried out in the real estate industry in our relationship with Brookmont. In banking, when you win someone’s trust with one service, they bring you their other needs. Brookmont going full service was great for us. It meant we could hand the building management to someone we trusted.”
—Nelson Bean, CEO First Commercial Bank
After Brookmont transformed the Southern Company Services building, a common 280 landmark, into a highly recognized architectural benchmark, the building’s owners saw the group’s new management team as a natural choice.
“Our investors look to us for financial peace of mind, but our tenants are a building’s life. To us that means being there every day keeping relationships strong, delivery of services in working order, and the lines of communication open. We strive for delivering more than just space. We provide businesses with spaces where they can succeed.”
-David Walker, Managing Member, Brookmont Realty Group, LLC
“Nobody is better at Class A office than Brookmont. I’m particularly impressed by their attention to detail—and their prior experiences in other, larger markets gives them a perspective most firms in this market don’t have.
“I’ve worked with Brookmont on any number of projects, and they always do what they say they’re going to do. I’d call that integrity.”
—Jim Rein, President, COO, B. L. Harbert International
