Real Estate Services

Managing and acquiring property for our community

The Real Estate Services Division is the city's expert for all real estate issues. The division advises the mayor, City Council, city departments and the public about city-owned property. Staff analyze existing facilities and sites to maximize the value of the city's assets. They also acquire all of the necessary land rights needed for public works projects, such as roads, sidewalks, light rail rights-of-way and storm water improvements. Real Estate staff have expertise in acquisitions, appraisals, disposition, relocations, leasing, title research and negotiations.

Please visit the City Properties website for a complete list of all city-owned commercial and residential properties currently for sale and coming soon. Most properties sold by the city are purchased through the upset bid process. Please see the guide on the right for additional information about the upset bid process.
