The Power of Local Knowledge

"NAI brokers are local brokers who are all deeply knowledgeable about the markets they serve. That combination of local expertise and global exposure is something we have come to count on."
- Susan Reber, Air Products & Chemicals, Inc.

Intimate, real-time market knowledge. 

Your key to any market, large or small, is your local real estate professional. At NAI, our brokers' intimate knowledge of the market and special relationships with property owners, major tenants and government agencies gives our clients the edge. In multi-site acquisition and disposition, this inside market access is critical to success - so you'll know not only what is possible but also what might become possible in the future. 

No other firm can access this level of local depth.

When you do business with NAI, you connect with the best people in each local marketplace. Our firms are selected because they are established names in their markets, and our professionals grew up in their markets - they are part of their communities and are better connected because of it. With our deep roots in local markets worldwide, we provide you with instant access to knowledge and expertise on the ground in the markets that matter to you.

We focus on the relationship, not simply the "deal."

At, NAI, our model is designed to handle multiple, simultaneous projects across a broad range of geographies around the world. We are also able to manage projects, both large and small, and in major and secondary markets, with equal efficiency. In this way, we not only give our clients a close, intimate view of the local markets where they do business, we give them a long view of their portfolio. Doing "deals," therefore, is not our priority; doing the right "deal" and building lasting relationships is.
