Ted Barr, a Principal with Woodside Health, a medical office building acquisition and management firm, celebrates his 30 year anniversary in the real estate business.
As a child, Barr was intrigued by real estate as it combined creativity with complex analytics. In high school he was involved in his first real estate deal, which involved buying a single family home. Since then, Barr's career has included monetizing a global portfolio of real estate for ICI, integrating real estate assets and strategy for Chrysler, Daimler, TRW, Key Bank, Progressive Insurance, Timken, TyssenKrupp, Cleveland Clinic, and other international corporations, and building several successful real estate companies including Woodside Health. In the past 30 years, since the first single family home, Barr has been involved with over $2 billion in real estate projects.
Prior to founding Woodside Health with business partners Joe Greulich and Ben Sheridan, Barr worked for several successful industry and community leaders including Deloitte & Touche, Cleveland Real Estate Partners, and Crescendo Commercial Realty.
During his impressive career, Barr has received many industry awards including the National Association of Industrial and Office Parks (NAIOP) northern Ohio chapter Investment Broker of the Year and Office Transaction of the Year.
"I've had the true pleasure of working with Ted for 16 years. Together we've worked for other firms as well as started four real estate companies including Woodside Health, which specializes in medical office buildings," explained Joe Greulich, Woodside Health Principal. "Ted's ability to quickly assess a real estate opportunity's pros and cons along with his keen analytical abilities make him an incredible partner," continued Greulich.
