"Commonweal Development was great to work with.  We worked with Ryan Erickson and Stuart Schaefer.  They were very responsive, flexible, and creative at finding the perfect space for Olson's Ice Cream's first expansion in 75 years.  They were also helpful in suggesting options for excellent resources to help us complete finishing our space out just the way we wanted.  Thank you Ryan, Stuart and Commonweal.  We will definitely use them for any future needs."

“We selected Commonweal Development Corporation for Jamf’s Eau Claire office because we liked the vision and passion Stuart Schaefer has for downtown. There were easier options to get the square footage that we needed, but because of his expertise and dedication we got a great building in an incredible location. Now that Commonweal handles the management of the building we have learned that the dependability that we value in Stuart is shared with the entire Commonweal team. They handle complicated situations efficiently and calmly. They have been a pleasure to work with and we look forward to our future partnerships.”

"We had the privilege of working with Ryan Erickson of Commonweal when looking for the perfect setting for our new Aveda Salon.  Ryan showed us the properties we thought might work, but after he listened intently to our ideas, he guided us to what we feel is the ultimate location.  Through the entire process, we feel we have gained a trusted friend. Ryan made the experience less daunting and enjoyable.  We, at Grazie Salon, highly recommend Ryan at Commonweal for your commercial real estate needs!"

They are a wonderful organization.”
