Corporate Philosophy – “A Perceptive Approach”

The Provo Group, Inc (“TPG”) was founded in 1985 to provide an alternative for the sophisticated investor — an alternative to the syndication fervor of the late 70’s and early 80’s. Unlike syndicators and brokers, TPG is paid for performance, not promotion.

TPG emphasizes client service, not brokerage and sales. Its staff is dedicated solely to creating value in your properties — without the conflicts of interest inherent in other real estate organizations.

Strategic Objective

To grow a company sought after by public and private investors to bring integrity to the management of their assets.
