Retail vacancy rates in the Sacramento region reached their lowest point in more than two years during the first quarter of 2012, according to a first quarter market report by Roseville’s Voit Real Estate Services

The retail market posted 167,724 square feet of positive net absorption in the first quarter this year, and availability dropped to 11.13 percent, a decrease of more than four percent year over year, according to the report.


“These numbers are moving in the right direction, and there is room for optimism as 2012 progresses,” said Kevin Sheehan, managing director of Voit’s Roseville office. “While these are all positive indicators, stability and job growth will need to be sustained in order for the market to continue its recovery.”

First Bank’s Janette Moynier recently received a 2012 Distinguished Alumni Award from Heald Business College.

The award also recognized Moynier for her guidance and inspiration to fellow workers and the ability to balance family, career and community.
