About Circo Enterprises

Circo logo

Circo Enterprises has been in the commercial, industrial and office real estate business for over 50 years. Circo Enterprises and its wholly owned affiliates, CSI and Pacific Realty own dozens of Properties throughout the heartland of America. Today, we invest in, with our own funds, and manage properties that we own 100%. We have no outside investors and we are debt free.

Circo Enterprises was formed by the merger of Circo Realty, Circo Leasing, and DPC Properties. These companies are owned by our CEO, Dennis Circo, and have acquired commercial, industrial, and retail properties since the 1980s.

For decades, we have been a family-owned business. Our dedication to streamlining the process of commercial real estate, leasing, and property management has made us a force to be reckoned with and a quality source for your organization’s needs. Our strong relationships with financial institutions and the community, as well as our devotion to the latest strategies and knowledge, give us the edge in everything we do.

Our Team

The Circo Enterprises team is the core of our success. Without these individuals, we could not create the relationships, plans, and pure devotion to our vision.
