Rick Schair | President & CEO | firstname.lastname@example.orgWhen Rick Schair founded Schair & Associates Inc. / Schair and Associates Inc. in the mid 1980’s, his vision was to build a corporate real estate company that differed from the norm. His goal was to cater to a select group of U.S. and International investors and developers with the intent of building long-term relationships.
He viewed the company model as one that provided “full-service”, from the start of the transaction to the closing. This includes full involvement in all aspects of the process, including, but not limited to, contract preparation, negotiation, due diligence, zoning, etc.
He started his career specializing in raw land research identifying properties for 1031 exchanges with American Land Equities. In his first year, he received recognition for the highest grossing commercial sales agent in the history of The Cobb County Board of Realtors. Following that he went to work for the O.C. Hubert Estate in charge of land sales.
After his tenure with that estate, he opened Schair & Associates, Inc. Recognition has come in many forms. Within a few short years, the firm was awarded “The 15th Highest Grossing Real Estate Company”, by the Atlanta Business Chronicle. Mr. Schair is a two-time recipient of the Ernst & Young “Real Estate Deal of the Year” award in two separate categories.
Over the years Schair and Associates, Inc, the company philosophy has not changed and many of the client relationships founded in the first few years still remain strong. Rather than focus on a single asset type, Schair & Associates has been the procuring cause in major lease and sales transactions in industrial, office, retail, multi-family, and land.
