Best Commercial Real Estate Deals

The Frederick Real Estate Dealmakers (FRED) Awards are hosted by the Frederick County Office of Economic Development and honor the most successful commercial real estate transactions and projects each year– and the people who made them happen.

Nominations open in November and winners are announced in early Spring.

“There is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes when businesses locate or expand in Frederick County. The teams behind the deals which include commercial real estate agents, architects, engineers, general contractors, building owners, and the companies, put in countless hours to ensure that their clients needs and deadlines are met,“ said Director of Economic Development Helen Propheter. “The commercial real estate projects honored are a celebration of those people who help grow our economy.”
