Today’s spotlight: Kim Soule

Senior vice president


Background: Soule specializes in the acquisition and disposition of commercial properties, including multi-tenant office buildings, industrial facilities, hotels and undeveloped land.

Professional advice: “Communicate and be honest.  It is unconscionable how many times I have called brokers and never heard back from them.  How can you sell something if you don’t respond?  Also, nobody likes to deliver bad news, but the sooner you deliver it the sooner you can move forward.”

Lesson learned in 2020: “Always take that extra step.  My banking background enabled me early information about the Paycheck Protection Program.  I sent information to my clients, providing them a running start on the program.   As it turned out, this was valuable because most of my clients were approved for the original funding.”

Surprising fact: “I am a fifth-generation Arizonan on my mother’s side.  Our family migrated here before Arizona statehood and several East Valley streets carry my family’s names (Ellsworth, Riggs, Dana).  Even worse, I was named after a subdivision in Mesa that is now defunct, which shows you how old I am.”
