Each year, Midwest Real Estate News elects a new class to its Commercial Real Estate Hall of Fame. Here’s a look at one of our new inductees, Adam Kaduce, managing director and senior vice president with West Des Moines, Iowa-based R&R Real Estate Advisors.
The numbers tell the story: R&R Real Estate Advisors’ Adam Kaduce has been one of the most successful CRE pros in the Des Moines market since entering the business more than 10 years ago.
How successful has he been? During his career, Kaduce has completed more than $100 million in lease transactions. And as managing director and senior vice president at R&R, Kaduce oversees leasing in the company’s 8-million-square-foot office, industrial, retail and land portfolio. He also manages a team of six commercial real estate professionals.
Kaduce’s peers recognize his success. That’s why this industry pro has been selected as the Best Commercial Real Estate Broker by the Des Moines Business Record and Broker of the Year by the Iowa Commercial Real Estate Association.
What fuels Kaduce’s impressive success? He’s fortunate to not only be an extremely talented CRE broker, but to also love his career.
“The opportunity to build lifelong relationships,” Kaduce said when asked what he enjoys most about commercial real estate. “As CRE professionals, our primary role is helping businesses find the right workspace where their business will thrive and grow. Being an advocate for a wide range of businesses makes our job challenging and fulfilling.”
Kaduce also provides the best possible service to his clients. His hard work for them has led to a steady stream of repeat clients.
“I’ve succeeded in the CRE industry because of my dedication and commitment to my customers,” Kaduce said. “I’ve been fortunate enough to have great mentors who have helped me understand the value of integrity, honesty and hard work. At the end of the day, crafting a deal that benefits your customer is what our jobs are all about. I have always worked on behalf of my clients to get them the best value while working in the highest ethical way. In a small market like Des Moines, your reputation is everything.”
Despite this busy career, Kaduce is active in his community and profession. This includes serving as the president of the Iowa/Nebraska chapter of the SIOR. He also serves as president of his local community foundation, Endow Urbandale, and recently completed an interim term on the Urbandale City Council. At Drake University, Kaduce chairs the board of the college of business and public administration.
When not working for his clients, Kaduce enjoys traveling and golf.
“In fact, the best days are when those two hobbies can come together in places like South Carolina and Arizona,” Kaduce said. “I also love opportunities to be involved in my community, serving with a number of organizations focused on education and support for those less advantaged in our community.”
