Our company was founded by Michael Powers Buekers, a fourth generation Phoenician, who started in the commercial real estate business with Del Webb Devco in 1973. He then moved to Tessier & Associates in 1980 and Calavest REO in 1985. After the recession of the late 1980s, Mike realized the need for consistent and reliable property management services among the properties he leased and sold. This led to him taking a leap of faith and MPB Realty Services was started.
Starting with one office plaza and eventually building a portfolio that boasts over 80 commercial properties and thousands of acres of land, the company has thrived through numerous economic booms and downturns. Mike’s daughter, Carly Christine Rebuck, joined the MPB team in 2004 and Mike’s son, Michael Blair Buekers, although having worked maintenance and labor specific jobs with the company since the age of 13, officially joined the MPB team in 2006. Michael and Carly continue to build upon Mike’s strong legacy but also increase MPB’s presence not only online but in our local community. The MPB Realty Services team also includes six other highly qualified property managers and support staff with over 100 years combined real estate experience.
Our client list has included not only REOs of multi-national insurance companies but individual owners of a few thousand square foot buildings with small local tenants. Over the last 35 years of doing business in the Valley, word of mouth referrals from our valued tenants and owners and friends are still not only the best source of not only new business but also the best compliments our clients could ever pay us.
