We facilitate the purchase, sale, or lease of office space and single-story, low-rise, and high-rise office buildings. We match sellers with qualified bidders and find space for buyers that suit their needs perfectly for ideal location, size, and budget, and other criteria.



Looking to hang a shingle? We help retailers buy or lease space in freestanding buildings, strip malls, and shopping malls. We know the local downtown, suburban, and urban markets.

Want to sell? Count on us for expert strategy, property valuation, buyer/tenant search, and identification of target markets.



We know local industrial parks, freestanding buildings, flex space, and other industrial buildings like the back of our hands. Turn to us to help buy, sell, or lease a property.



Want to build from the ground up, or invest in land? We can find your perfect site or assemble sites to meet your specific requirements.

We represent developers on the selection and purchase of raw and entitled land, as well as sellers of land holdings.


Client Representation

For Corporate Tenants and Renters

The difference between success and failure for a company often comes down to strategic siting. Real estate is a major chunk of overall budget, and business owners need the right office space to attract customers and recruit and retain staff.

Key Realty represents tenants of all sizes, including multinational corporations, small chains, single-store entrepreneurs, and start-ups. Our services include:

  • Analysis of space needs, competitors, target markets, and real-estate business objectives
  • Education on the latest market trends and information to minimize real estate costs and support productivity
  • Targeting and touring of qualified properties
  • Negotiation of the best deal for purchase, lease, or lease renewal
  • Referral to and/or collaboration with construction managers, project managers, space planners, banks, and real estate attorneys

For Sellers and Landlords

There’s a lot more to selling and managing a commercial property than listing it and mailing a rent statement. Our brokers assist sellers and landlords through these services:

  • Market valuations and feasibility studies
  • Advice on acquisition and disposition
  • Property marketing strategies
  • Connection to qualified tenants, buyers, and investors
  • Leasing strategies and tenant mixes that maximize occupancy and revenue

Confidential Offerings

The owner might wish to retain employees, be facing a sudden change in business or personal circumstances, or have other reasons. In these cases we use discretion to connect buyers and sellers using our extensive local and national networks.
