Since its founding in 1973, the mission of Tartan Properties has been to bring the highest level of integrity and personalized service to the commercial real estate industry in Northern Virginia. TARTAN combines the exceptional service and expertise usually found in larger firms with the personalized relationship between client and real estate advisor that one expects from a small shop. From the beginning, TARTAN’s goal has been to represent and protect the best interests of our clients through creative solutions, sharp negotiations, and deep market expertise.
Tartan Properties Commercial has a long tradition of philanthropy and community service with particular focus on education, literacy and youth sports. For 40 years, we have remained committed to being a positive influence in the communities we serve through our giving and volunteerism. As second-generation residents of Northern Virginia, we feel an extra responsibility to improve the area in which we grew up and now live.
In 2016, the Senior Services of Alexandria organization honored Mike along with his mother, Kitty Porterfield, and daughters Keely and Kirby Porterfield, at the Generation-to-Generation Gala for their longstanding service to the Alexandria community. The award highlights members in the community who exemplify how dedication and a passion for giving back can be passed down from generation to generation.
Organizations that TARTAN has supported through direct giving or volunteering include these:
Mike Porterfield presenting a scholarship award to a deserving T.C. Williams H.S. student at the 2012 Scholarship Fund of Alexandria Awards Night
Steve Beggs participates in the Movember fundraisers celebration after being named the top fundraiser in the Capital Region in 2011
