Several brokers have shared stories with us of their longest (and shortest) deals ever. You may have read about a multifamily deal in Chicago that stretched for over two years. This week, we’re sharing the story of an assisted living deal with a dramatic ending!
We asked brokers for stories about their shortest and longest deals ever. What did we learn? Well, sometimes you just get incredibly lucky and a dream deal falls into your lap and practically ties itself up with a bow. And other times, well…the stories speak for themselves.
Enjoy the first in this 3-part series and learn how brokers keep momentum and stay organized when deals carry on for years on end.
When we talk to brokers, it’s the deal stories that generate the most emotion, whether good or bad. While we’re in the business of making sure you have an easy, repeatable process to prospect and work through your deals, we know that sometimes you just get lucky.
Today, we’re looking at those rare but beautiful moments when everything just falls into place. Here are the stories of some of the shortest deals our brokers have encountered.
In the latest episode of Common Area with Tanner McGraw, Tanner chats with Jonathan Peranich, Managing Partner at Peranich Huffman et Lease Group based in Houston, TX. Jonathan sources and facilitates net leased healthcare investment sales throughout the country and advises a clientele engaged in the development, acquisition, and disposition of net-leased medical assets for both private and institutional principals.
Jonathan and Tanner discuss the ups and downs of the CRE rollercoaster, building a successful team, quirky deals, and more.

Not everyone in the city was pleased with the new initiative, however. Many building owners feel the rule is too strict and will make building in the city too costly. The Green Roof Task Force Committee, comprised of various stakeholders, is now working to recommend changes to the new ordinance to city council.
Last month, we had the pleasure of visiting NAI Partners at their Houston office. It was great to get back to Apto’s roots, given that we started off in the Woodlands, Texas before making the move to Denver.
We brought a team of three Apto employees from Product & Engineering with the intention of learning how NAI Partners is using Apto and what we could improve. Little did we know we’d be walking away with insight into how one of the best-in-breed brokerages has become, and stayed, so successful.
When you’ve been in the CRE industry for a while, you encounter certain myths and pieces of bad advice that just won’t go away. This week, we reached out to brokers to find out the one thing that keeps being passed around as truth—but simply isn’t so. Here’s what they had to say:
Apto Founder and Chief Strategy Officer Tanner McGraw was recently at DisruptCRE Chicago to talk to brokers and other tech leaders about what they’re seeing in the industry.
It’s no secret that technology is reshaping the way CRE professionals work and opening the door to new opportunities. So Tanner moderated a panel on the different technology tools optimizing and advancing transactions throughout the lifecycle of buildings from all different asset classes.
As a broker, you spend your life striking up conversations with potential clients—whether it’s on the phone with a prospect or in line at the coffee shop. And if you’re one of the good ones, you know exactly how to keep the conversation going from that first hello to that first deal.
There’s a lot at stake from the very first words you use, which is why we asked brokers what they like to do to spark a connection and keep things flowing. Here’s what they had to say:
