President’s Profile

As President of Mayfield Companies, John Klimp establishes overall operating policy including guidelines for rental rates, operating expense levels, preventative maintenance schedules and capital improvements. John has been Managing Partner of private syndications of office and multifamily properties since 1973; he derives financial goals for all investment groups and negotiates every acquisition.  In addition, John maneuvers all property loans and significant office leases.

John believes he has a personal obligation to each of Mayfield’s apartment residents and commercial tenants, demonstrating such feelings in all aspects of business.  John often visits Mayfield’s commercial tenants to ensure their satisfaction.  While this level of personal accountability is rare of commercial landlords, John has always enjoyed engaging in business face to face.  His personal approach to business is still much appreciated by both tenants and investors in today’s ever-evolving and technology-consumed landscape.  Additionally, John’s personal obligation to Mayfield’s investors is further exemplified by his significant investment in every Mayfield acquisition, which include all commercial office and multifamily apartment properties.  John has personally met with every Mayfield investor.

John has been a licensed General Contractor in Oregon since 1987 and a licensed real estate broker in California since 1973 and in Oregon since 2004. He received his BS in Electrical Engineering from Long Beach State University in 1968 and an MBA from the University of Santa Clara in 1974.  John Klimp was born in The Netherlands and emigrated to the United States in 1957.
