A FIRM HANDSHAKE PUTS US INTO ACTION

We take an active role in the communities where we live and work, striving to relieve hunger, investing in education, and giving back to local charities.
WE BELIEVE OUR BUSINESSES ARE AS STRONG AS THE COMMUNITY
Wonderful is passionate about sustainability, social responsibility, and philanthropy–for our employees, our communities, and consumers around the world. We take an active role in supporting our communities.

STRONG MUNICIPAL RELATIONSHIPS BENEFIT THE WHOLE

REVIVING A SMALL FARMING COMMUNITY

Wonderful develops each industrial property to CALGreen standards.
WE ARE LONGTIME LAND STEWARDS
Wonderful’s agricultural heritage has led to a strong knowledge of land use and conservation that we implement in each of our industrial developments.
Wonderful Real Estate has a streamlined underwriting and deal-negotiation process with very few layers of bureaucracy:
- Our “investment committee” is comprised of the company owner.
- We use in-house legal, finance, capital projects and property management resources to provide world-class service and responsiveness.
- We utilize our own capital resources and typically finance projects directly from The Wonderful Company’s balance sheet, further streamlining the execution process.
We operate based on a few critical ideals:
- We focus on our clients and provide the best solutions for their specific needs.
- There are no cookie-cutter deals—every project is unique and requires a thoughtful approach.
- We create long-term, trusted relationships with our clients; we are trustworthy and our word is our bond.
