John Griffin Realty ltd was established 25 years ago as a specialist motel brokerage. What makes us different is our belief that it is all about the people and not just about the sale. We don’t just sell any motel to any person but match up your needs and goals with a complex which will help you achieve your dream.
Purchasing a motel is a complex business. It is a major decision by the purchaser and takes a lot of courage.
Making sure that the right information and the right advice is available is an imperative. You need to ensure that you have an adviser that you can trust.
I have been associated with Kathie Shepard for over 12 years first as a very fine operator, then as a member of the board of the Motel Association and latterly as a very expert Broker.
The ability to translate the complexities of operating a motel to assist those that are looking to enter the industry is a skill and a talent both of which Kathie has in spades.
In my experience where Motels are purchased with less than excellent advice from the broker the transition into the new business is doubly difficult. Kathie is a subject matter expert and as such is an asset to any purchaser.
I believe that Kathie is an asset to the purchaser and the seller and also an asset to the industry as a whole. I would recommend her to an aspiring purchaser and to any Motelier looking to sell there businesses.
I have known Kathie for many years under my professional capacity as a property valuer.
I have always found Kathie to be honest, reliable and friendly in our dealings with her and for the people she represents.
Kathie is well respected within the business community .
Kathie always handles herself professionally and is diligent to the task at hand. She is well experienced, which enables her to meet exceptionally high standards .
I would have no hesitation in recommending Kathie to meet people’s professional needs.

I am sure most of us would agree that this would not be a wise investment. I see many people investing...

This is one of the most common questions I get asked by potential buyers. Often people are discouraged form motelling by friends and family who say. Oh no you will be stuck there like a prison not being able to go anywhere. This is well meaning advice from people who care but the reality is a different picture. A motel is your own business and as such you can operate it however you like. The ...
