OA Development was founded in 1993 and has evolved from a commercial brokerage firm into an industry leader in investing in, developing, managing and brokering commercial properties. Since its inception, OA Development has developed and acquired more than 3 million square feet of commercial space throughout the U.S., totaling more than $325 million. Financial partners include U.S. financial institutions such as Wells Fargo, BB&T, the PrivateBank, State Bank and Trust Company, and equity investors throughout the world.
The company’s success in a market that is starved for capital is a result of its team’s ability to combine an exhaustive due diligence process, strong investor relationships, creative financing and impressive track record of seeing deals through to closing. Many of the company’s purchases were made with nearly 100 percent equity, allowing it to renovate the existing buildings, quickly increase occupancy and make sizable returns to investors.
