Clifford J. Cutler is the founder and designated broker for Cutler Commercial. Cliff is proud of his attributes that contribute to his success as a broker such as tenacity, perseverance, and hard work. Cliff’s accomplishments are due to his unique quality of building an organization as well as attracting and keeping key employees that help power the boutique commercial real estate brokerage company that Cutler Commercial is today. Cliff’s approach to brokerage is both “Old School”, wear your shoes out canvassing tenants to fill buildings, but he also recognizes the changing needs of the industry using updated technology, tools, and services. Cliff leaves “No Stone Unturned” in securing a potential space for a tenant or finding and orchestrating both “Off Market” and listed deals. Cliff literally believes that no deal is too small and always gives his all for the client. Cliff’s evolution into becoming a principal, owner, and syndicator of over 1 million square feet throughout the valley is fascinating. Despite his success, he still actively and eagerly puts his skills to use for new and existing clients. Cliff’s brokerage practice has spanned the disciplines of brokerage, development, entitlement, and procurement of finance. Furthermore, he has the capacities and capabilities that Cutler Commercial brings to the table as a full-service boutique real estate company that can not only procure a property but help manage and lease it as well.
