A Note from Patrick Gaughan

Over the years, we’ve learned a few things about business and real estate. We absolutely know that you can’t buy a good reputation, but you do have to work hard at it. For more than 50 years, Gaughan Companies, founded by Patrick J. Gaughan (my dad), in 1969, has been committed to building and maintaining the most solid commercial experience possible for our Twin Cities metro clients.

We’re not about big promises or cutting corners—we operate with honesty and integrity because it is the right way to treat our clients. It’s what my dad would do and it is what keeps our clients coming back time and time again.

Our mission is fairly simple: we care about you and we put that same care into your real estate interests. We are happy to hear from you and can’t wait to work together to build your commercial investment dreams. We are confident that through our hard work and our relationships, you will see we love what we do!


We can’t wait to hear from you,

Patrick M. Gaughan
