Farmington Hills, MI – (May 10, 2023) Friedman Real Estate, one of the nation’s leading providers of commercial real estate services, facilitated the consolidation and relocation of Guardian Alarm’s HQ to a new 37,111 SF leased office space located at 26711 Northwestern Highway in Southfield, Michigan. Friedman also sold their 66,000 SF former office location at the intersection of 8 Mile Road and the Southfield Freeway.
