“INSIGHTS is a collection of commercial real estate (CRE) thoughts and stats mostly on Atlanta, [Georgia], along with political comments and random factoids/sayings/quotes.” The collection is authored Steven D. Martin, Managing Principal of SDM Partners.

A Note From Stu:

Steve D. Martin is close friend and one of the brightest people I know in real estate. He is a 29 year veteran of commercial real estate whose areas of expertise include acquisitions, development, and finance. He focuses his business in the southeastern part of the US, specifically metropolitan Atlanta, GA.

In contrast to southeastern Wisconsin, Atlanta is a city that’s known for booms and busts; it is not yet fully recovered from the last bust. The state of Wisconsin is on a healthy road to recovery. Our state recently has been ranked as one the top business climates in the United States.

Wangard is primarily focusing on new developments and stabilized assets. We are continuing to acquire opportunistic assets on a very limited basis. Our very best assets are those that are well-located, well-constructed and managed by us. The opportunistic deals typically come with several complications and property flaws that are difficult to discover during the due diligence process. We are still finding a good selection of development opportunities throughout Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin. While interest rates are increasing, we continue to find opportunity in the emergent economic activity.

The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the position of Wangard.
