Mike Ingram

Founder and Chairman El Dorado Holdings

“In my 30 years in development, I cannot think of anybody more qualified than Plaza Companies, especially in the medical field. Plaza Companies, with Sharon Harper’s leadership, is an organization that can be counted on to perform and accomplish. I have known Sharon for many years and the reputation and track record of her and Plaza Companies is one that we respect very much. Eldorado Holdings and Plaza Companies would look forward to the opportunity to work together.”

Ole Borchard-Christiansen, MD

Principal, Desert West OB

“As a physician, I have been a past CEO of Desert West OB/GYN, a 20 -physician practice with four offices and have worked with Plaza Companies since 1979. We have experienced Plaza Companies and their abilities both as significant equity investors, as tenants and as a recipient of their sophisticated brokerage services. The Plaza Companies real estate asset management services are unparalleled from our perspective. The ability to identify and define projects, sophisticated underwriting services, comprehensive offering memorandums and on-going financial and analytical updates and regular reporting has not only made Plaza Companies but their investments stand out as exceptional. The on-going annual investor distributions and the financial returns upon sale have been stellar. From my perspective this has been a result of exceptional, highly focused and highly skilled financial underwriting analysis, investment returns modeling, ability to react to changing economic environments, to protect and sustain investments and a disposition strategy that has been phenomenal.”

Jim Lane

Mayor, City of Scottsdale

“Plaza Companies has led some of the most complex and significant projects in Scottsdale, with Vi at Silverstone and SkySong, the ASU Innovation Center. These projects anchor the City from both the north and the south. The City of Scottsdale prides itself in superb design review and complex zoning oversight. Plaza Companies has excelled with both in their endeavors in the City of Scottsdale and they are highly regarded for their professional and collaborative work with City leadership to develop some of the finest projects in our community.”

Robert Delgado

CEO, Hensley Beverage Company

“Sharon Harper serves as a model for what a corporate executive should be. She is the consummate professional – intuitive, always prepared and willing to lead through example. What I admire most about Sharon, however, is her willingness to dedicate her extensive professional skills to the betterment of our community, in ways too numerous to mention. Her mark is everywhere, due to a tireless work ethic coupled with a genuine concern for the future.”

Andrei Damian, MD

President and CEO, Cardiovascular Consultants

“Cardiovascular Consultants (CVC) has worked with Plaza Companies since 2002 as a tenant and as a physician equity investor. Several of the physicians of CVC, a highly specialized cardiovascular group of 55 physicians and mid-level providers, have invested with Plaza and have been very pleased with the asset management services of Plaza. In particular, the in depth market analysis and financial underwriting, private offering memorandums, sophisticated return on investment as well as sensitive restructuring of complex leases and institutional ground leases have been most impressive. As evidence by recent dispositions, the investments have experienced stellar performance.”
