The MSC story is all about PEOPLE. People like Doug Caton, the company's founder and chairman. Doug built the company by finding people who shared his core values, the same values that defined him as a soldier, a banker and a real estate professional. Following Doug's vision, this small group created what is today a full-service real estate organization dedicated to providing their customers with an excellent value for their money.

The people of MSC work as a team.

  • Teams that remove the snow from sidewalks and parking lots.
  • Teams that operate cutting edge IT systems which create account statements you can understand.
  • Teams that help customers with questions whether it's in their primary job area or not.
  • Teams that lease commercial office and retail spaces, making our developments and buildings primary destinations in their communities.

We help each other. And we've been helping the communities we serve for more than 40 years.
