About Robbins Properties

Following many years of leadership in regional and national commercial real estate, I founded Robbins Properties® in May 2000 confident of the tremendous opportunity for a forward-thinking commercial real estate firm with a strong emphasis on personalized service.  The firm’s formation represents a long-term investment in both clients and properties evidenced by astute professional guidance and unparalleled responsiveness.

Owners commend us for our high level of competence and professionalism in providing property management, leasing and investment sales services. Tenants appreciate our attentiveness to their needs and our desire to zealously maintain the integrity of the property.

Unlike the muddle of large multi-layer companies, we deal with you directly and decisively. Unlike smaller companies, our sizeable resources include an extensive proprietary database of individuals with whom we’ve established strategic relationships, the latest technology in data management, and instant mobile accessibility to all information and operations.

As evidence of our trustworthy counsel and efficient real estate services, several clients have been with us for more than twenty years.  Most of our new business comes from recommendations from our valuable clients.

Today we provide real estate services to a portfolio of more than 120 properties encompassing more than 2.8 million square feet of improvements. We actively manage retail, industrial, office, land, multi-family and association properties throughout Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina, Southern Ohio, Northern Illinois, and Southern Indiana.

We would be honored to discuss how Robbins Properties® can meet your commercial real estate needs.
