Stuart Holcombe, CCIM
Corporate Real Estate Advisors
Stuart Holcombe has over twenty years of work experience in corporate real estate and is President and CEO of Corporate Real Estate Advisors (CREA), an international commercial real estate firm based in Atlanta, Georgia. Stuart's practice is dedicated to serving and representing office, industrial and medical tenants and buyers only. Since he does not believe it is possible to negotiate from both sides of the table, he does not take listings, nor represent landlords or sellers, not now, not ever, never. Stuart understands the needs of corporate tenants, their objectives and the value of their time. He works in partnership, on his client's behalf, without conflict of interest and with total objectivity.
