First Western Properties is the premier retail-focused commercial real estate company in the Northwest. First Western Properties was founded in 1979 as a company whose sole purpose was the leasing of shopping centers built by our former parent company, First Western Development. Since then, First Western Properties has grown to become a full service commercial real estate brokerage and property management company that serves the greater Pacific Northwest region with offices in Kirkland, Seattle, Tacoma, and Portland.



Established in 1988, Realty Resources Network, Inc. is a unique alliance of independent commercial real estate brokerage firms from across the nation. The firms are well established and well known in the retail real estate industry, enjoying dominance in their respective trade areas. As independent companies, the firms have strong ties to the communities they represent as well as stakeholders and leaders at the local level who can make things happen. This gives us the edge in providing invaluable assistance to all of the clients we proudly serve.


“The First Western Team has done a tremendous job for us the last few years. Having three centers in close proximity to each other they show us every deal that comes to the market and  have great relationships with a lot of the retailers which makes closing a deal a lot easier.”

“We’ve had the opportunity to work with First Western Properties on several occasions.  Most recently on the purchase, pre-lease and disposition of a development in the Totem Lake market.  Their market knowledge and ability to drive and negotiate record rents on the project allowed this to be a very successful project and help achieve our goals.”

“We have grown from a small start up to a network of over 4,400 stores across the country.  We rely on First Western to direct us into profitable and successful locations throughout Washington.”

“First Western Properties market knowledge and tenant relationships guided our redevelopment and marketing decisions to make Highland Hill the dominant center in the North Tacoma trade area.  This eventually lead to a successful sale of the shopping center. The investment market understanding of this group resulted in a timely sale to a West Coast regional REIT.”

Doug McFadyen | Highland Sixth Associates LP

“First Western Properties are our ‘go to’ Brokers. They know the Tenant’s, they know the Market, they get it done!”

Peter W Powell | Powell Development Co.

“I have worked with and known the team at First Western Properties for over fifteen years.  I consider them not only Best in Class, but best in Washington and I would recommend them to any client, big or small.  In my dealings with FWP, I always felt as if I was their most important client.  They will meet their clients’ needs and will be thoughtful to put clients only in sites where they will achieve long term success.”
