Meet the Team: Jordan Wallace PMP – Project Manager
Jordan Wallace joined Allen Sigmon Real Estate Group in 2017 as a project manager. He was previously the director of operations for a local production and retail company – overseeing 100 employees, six retail locations, and three production facilities. Jordan has lived in Albuquerque for 23 years and developed a comprehensive network of like-minded business professionals. He has been a key member in emerging industries within New Mexico and developed policies and procedures still used today.
Jordan graduated from the University of New Mexico, Anderson School of Management in 2015 with a BBA in Operations Management and Six Sigma Green Belt.

He is passionate about applying continuous improvement (Kaizen) and Lean principles in business and project management.
What excites you about the New Mexico Commercial Real Estate Market? The most exciting facet of the New Mexico Commercial Real Estate Market is the opportunity for growth and expansion into emerging industries. I believe New Mexico has infinite potential for the manufacturing and film production sector. We are blessed with abundant amounts of available space for development, two major interstate highways intersecting in Albuquerque, and a low cost of living compared to other comparable states.
What challenges come with Commercial Project Management? All of them (lol). Challenges include but are not limited to – developing a cohesive design package that will meet expectations of the end-user and keep development costs low, working with contractors to provide competitive concise bids, building a schedule that will limit waste but provide slack for altering the critical path when required, preventing scope creep from contractors or end users, coordinating with authorities having jurisdiction on inspections and expectations, and solving the endless issues and problems that arise during the construction process.
What is your biggest victory at Allen Sigmon? My biggest victory so far was being awarded the Torrance County CYFD contract for a build-to-suit facility in Moriarty, NM. I submitted and presented multiple proposals to the State, over a 3-year period. The most recent was finally approved after lengthy negotiations and many iterations of design. We will be breaking ground on this project in mid-February and complete by October 2021.
What are your favorite projects to work on? My favorite projects are new construction because I enjoy seeing the progression from a vacant lot to becoming a beautiful property that elevates or revitalizes a community.
What do you do in your free time? First and foremost, I spend most of my free time with my beautiful fiancé and our three dogs. I am also a man of many hobbies but the one that occupies a large portion of my free time during Spring-Fall is drag racing. I compete all around the southwest in a variety of events ranging from “No Prep” track to “Cash Days” street races on private roads.
