Delivering specialized expertise with integrity for over 30 years

TerraForms’ roots date back to 1983 when Principal Founder, Ernie Smith, started developing net lease properties in the mountain states. The foundation of TerraForm is built on two key factors: specialization and integrity.


At TerraForm we are privileged to have worked with some of the best names in the net lease space. Below is a sampling of our clients we have assisted in opening in great locations.

A specialized focus and uncompromising integrity is what sets TerraForm apart.

Our dedication to net lease developments for over three decades has given us unparalleled experience in this arena. This specialized expertise enables TerraForm to build quality relationships and add significant value to our clients. TerraForm has always operated with integrity as the driving value in all we do. We understand that relationships are built on trust and accountability. We do what we say we are going to do and we operate with openness and fairness.

We believe that the best way to provide quality results is to focus on one thing and do it exceptionally well.

Wendy’s worked with TerraForm on a ground lease transaction that had significant developer offsite utility obligations and a short time frame to store opening. TerraForm communicated well with our construction department and leveraged its relationships with city employees and contractors to complete the offsites in a timely manner that allowed our contractor to deliver the store on time. TerraForm follows through on what they commit to do and communicates well throughout the development process. The TerraForm principals are a pleasure to work with.

TerraForm is a great partner in the growth of our company. Their focus on single tenant development means we receive unparalleled service and fast response time from TerraForm principals. They help us find great sites and consistently deliver new locations on time and on budget. We look forward to continuing to work with TerraForm to expand our footprint in the Intermountain area.

TerraForm came to us with a great site for Taco Bell. I was impressed with how well they operated within our development structure. We received direct attention from TerraForm principals who were able to make decisions quickly and keep the project on schedule. Their nimble, responsive structure enabled us to open our store in less than 90 days from starting construction.

TerraForm has been developing sites for us for over 3 years. With their experience in the automotive service industry, they helped us revamp our floor plan and improve our development model. They have delivered consistent and reliable results and I am always able to talk directly with decision makers who can respond quickly and solve problems. TerraForm is a trusted business partner who has helped us find and develop great sites, enabling us to focus on other aspects of our business and achieve our expansion objectives.
