The second owner was William Velazquez who then transitioned ILS to Rose Arevalo. The property updates were initially assembled into large printed directories and distributed in-person to clients. As technology advanced, ILS updates transitioned to personalized online delivery. ILS publishes data that helps industrial property buyers, sellers, lenders and other alliance service providers. ILS can be accessed at www.ilssc.com and www.AvailableNow.com

Rose leads this organization and the ILS branding footprint continues to expand, in large part because of great client customer service and reviews.
