This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. The National Association of Realtors recently named Salt Lake City as a top 10 market for commercial real estate. That makes sense – Utah’s unemployment rate is now at 2.7%, and workers need places to work. Here to tell us more is Barb Johnson with CBRE.


Utah’s economy is vibrant and that can put pressure on businesses that need to expand. That’s where CBRE comes in. We’re a global commercial real estate company. In fact, CBRE is the largest commercial real estate services firm in the world, with more than 100,000 employees in offices spread across more than 100 countries. I work as a First Vice President specializing in office occupier services; in short, I help companies find office, land, and lab space.

Working with the world’s largest commercial real estate firm comes with its advantages—like having access to the most robust services and technology platform in the industry.

This is paramount to the work we do at CBRE, because we don’t just find office space, we pair companies with optimal locations to help them achieve their business goals. This customized approach helps us turn real estate into real advantage for our clients, because at the end of the day it’s all about exceeding our clients’ expectations.


These are exciting and challenging times to be working and growing businesses here in Utah. Visit for more information. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, Speaking on Business.
