Testimonials

From initial planning to complete healthcare strategy and execution, Davis has helped dozens of clients meet their healthcare goals. Here’s what some of our clients are saying about our comprehensive services.

  • Todd Hudspeth, President & CEO

    I am writing to provide my enthusiastic endorsement for the Davis Group.

    I have found Mark and Michael easy to work with and I especially appreciate their willingness to listen and to take action when appropriate. They demonstrated that they are good problem solvers that bring solutions that don't negatively impact the project or the timeline. I especially valued their willingness to work with us in providing a high quality building and for their willingness to add additional amenities (a coffee bar) and work with us on aesthetic issues (replacement of doors from my hospital).

    I would highly recommend the Davis Group as a partner for any medical office development.

  • Mark Pottenger, Administrator
    Northwest Family Physicians

    I am happy to provide, without reservation, an endorsement of services provided by Mark Davis, Principle, and the staff of the Davis Group in their development of the Crystal Medical Center and new home of the Crystal office of Northwest Family Physicians.

    The successful development of the Crystal Medical Center was critical for the future success of Northwest Family Physicians. This 11.2 million, 44,000 sq. ft. project was complicated by the fact that is included developing and securing seven different parcels that the City bought from Hennepin County a retail site that had gone back to the lender and three single family homes. The Davis Group was able to successfully assemble all of these pieces of real estate, as well as, creating the necessary financial funding for the project to move forward.

    The Davis Group sets itself apart by displaying an ability to listen and apply what is said. They were able to move forward and resolve problems so that we were able to meet a tight deadline and insure that the project was completed on time. The end product and quality of the building is exceptional. The consensus of everyone that sets foot in the building is that they are amazed at what has been created.

    The Davis Group was also able to work in a coordinated fashion with the City of Crystal resulting in a strong and positive relationship. From beginning to end, the Davis Group was able to meet and exceed all of our expectations for this project.

  • Marc A. Johannsen, Mayor
    The City of Vadnais Heights

    On behalf of the City staff and Council of Vadnais Heights, this letter is intended as a testimonial to the fine work that the Davis Real Estate Services Group is leading on the construction of a medical center in Vadnais Heights. Mark Davis and his team of staff and consultants have been an absolute joy to work with during the entire planning and approval process of their development. Their facility, over 60,500 square feet in size, will provide a multi-tenant medical clinic building in our most notable commercial area of the City.

    Mr. Davis and his staff were very forward in approaching the City on their development. They worked closely with the City staff during the planning process to ensure that all documents and submittals were accurate and timely. Our City staff commented on numerous occasions on their pleasure in dealing with the Davis Group. They are absolute professionals in every sense. They recognized the importance of the project and provided renderings, traffic projections, soils and financial documents and plans and specification that were the most complete we have ever received. Further, they provided this information without any dispute or prolonged discussion.

    The Davis Group gathered all of the appropriate professionals to present their project to both the City Planning Commission and City Council. They clearly have a great deal of experience and success in their business, as they presented information from other projects in the Twin Cities. They answered all of our questions to our complete and total satisfaction. Both the Planning Commission and City Council were appreciative of the project and unanimously recommended approval. They worked effectively to complete the development agreement and provided all appropriate guarantees to begin construction in Fall 2012. They held a very nice groundbreaking ceremony which the City Council and staff were pleased to participate in.

    Construction has proceeded very well and is on schedule to open in Summer 2013. They have contracted with excellent builders and subcontractors who have worked well with the City building official. They have provided timely information to City staff to allow for all neighboring properties to be protected and well informed during construction. In summary, Vadnais Heights would welcome the opportunity to work again with the Davis Real Estate Services Group and offers our greatest recommendation that other cities would be fortunate to have them develop in their community.

  • Patrick A. Peters, Director – Community Development Department
    City of Crystal

    I am pleased to offer this endorsement of The Davis Group as a testament to their skill and dedication in bringing about successful, meaningful results for a project and for an entire community.

    The Davis Group developed the Crystal Medical Center, a 44,000 square foot, $11.2 million dollar medical hub located at 5700 Bottineau Boulevard in Crystal, which opened its doors early in 2012. The project was wrought with challenges, particularly site assembly; but it was The Davis Group’s unwavering spirit of cooperation, resolve and responsiveness that ensured its ultimate success.

    The Davis Group delivered all that they had represented to the city’s Economic Development Authority and to the primary tenant, Northwest Family Physicians: a first class building with high quality materials, cutting edge interior configurations and signature site design, all of which contribute to its prominence on Bottineau Boulevard and the revival of 4-1/2 acres of once-blighted, underutilized properties.

    The city values that partnership with The Davis Group, due largely to how they do business. Mark Davis and his group were a pleasure to work with on this project; and I believe that can be attributed, in part, to their proactive approach to problem solving. They never hesitated when faced with complications that can accompany a project such as the Crystal Medical Center, which required the assembly of 11 parcels. They consistently demonstrated a willingness to listen to the city’s and residents’ concerns and to respond with a keen creativity that offered meaningful and timely solutions. Today, the testament to that creativity and their proactive approach can be seen at 5700 Bottineau Boulevard.

    It is without reservation that I offer this letter of endorsement of The Davis Group on behalf of the City of Crystal. They gave our community something very special.

  • Michael Boo, Chief Strategy Officer
    National Marrow Donor Program – Be The Match

    I would like to thank each of you for the great work and outstanding advice you provided as we contemplated and ultimately made the decision to relocate our business to a new 245,000 sq. ft. corporate headquarters facility in downtown Minneapolis. In the end, the lease terms negotiated on our behalf for this transaction met or exceeded our expectations.

    Thanks again.

  • Amy Klobuchar, United States Senator

    Thank you for inviting me today's groundbreaking for the new Minnetonka Medical Center. While I am unable to join you in person, I appreciate this opportunity to congratulate you on today's important milestone.

    The new Minnetonka Medical Center will provide more of the quality healthcare that is essential for our communities to grow and thrive. The investment in this new facility by North Memorial Health Care will help ensure that members of the west metro area have access to the primary and emergency care and expertise they deserve.

    Congratulations once again, and thank you for inviting me to today's groundbreaking celebration. It is an honor to serve you in the United States Senate.
