Fortin Group is a collective of family-owned real estate asset management companies with deep roots in the community and a strong commitment to the continued smart growth and economic success of downtown Bellevue.

Fortin Group began more than a half century ago, when founder L.H. "Vern" Fortin and his father-in-law, Lloyd Mitchell, started Quality Food Centers (QFC) grocery stores. After selling its interest in QFC in 1986, Fortin Group has concentrated on the active management of its significant real estate portfolio in downtown Bellevue.

Fortin Group’s guiding principles promote family, community and fiscal responsibility. Our values and business practices emphasize respect, integrity and collaboration—among family members, employees and stakeholders, and within the communities in which we do business.

The company believes in creating enduring, economically viable places that contribute to civic vitality. We support forward-thinking planning that emphasizes connectivity, walkability and open space. Invested in the long-term success of Bellevue, Fortin Group is dedicated to working collaboratively to create a downtown that will serve as an example for other communities and a source of pride for generations to come.
