Columbia's Trinity Partners Named Best Commercial Real Estate Firm

After just over a year of operation in Columbia, Trinity Partners is honored to have been named the city’s Best Commercial Real Estate Firm by Columbia residents, readers of Columbia Metropolitan Magazine. The magazine, considered one of South Carolina’s premier publications, was founded in 1990 and has an estimated readership / audience of 100,000.

Each year the magazine’s readers vote for the very best in the Midlands in late 2019. Columbia patrons, clients, and peers of businesses voted across a variety of categories to find the top winners for 2020. Trinity Partners is grateful to be included among the city’s most respected businesses, retailers, restaurants, and service providers.

The full-service commercial real estate firm expanded into Columbia in September 2018 with founding partners Bruce Harper, SIOR, Macon Lovelace, SIOR, Nick Stomski, SIOR, and Roger Winn, SIOR. The company grew quickly throughout 2019 and now employs 22 commercial real estate professionals from their Main Street office in downtown Columbia, including industry veterans like Dail Longaker, Paul Hartley, SIOR, and Rob Lapin.

“Of course, we are tremendously proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish in such a short time,” said Harper. “But to win this award after only a little over a year in business – and to know that it was the people of Columbia who took the time to vote for us – it’s very humbling and a wonderful testament to our team’s work ethic and the culture they’ve helped us create here at Trinity Partners.”
