Emery Shane serves as the Senior Partner and Managing Director for Shane, creating and implementing strategic plans and marketing of properties for the firm’s clients. Mr. Shane is a thirty one year veteran of the real estate business, having begun his career in 1980 in leasing and site selection for national tenants. In this capacity he constructed over $50 million in retail, restaurant, office and banking projects, and handled land acquisition, entitlements, financing, and leasing.
Mr. Shane became an investment brokerage specialist in 1989, and since that time has closed well over $1 billion in investment property sales. He has been Regional Manager and East Coast Director of Retail for a top three national investment sales firm, overseeing 500 Agents and $5 billion in sales.
In 2001, Emery Shane founded Shane which specializes in investment sales. It has become a prominent force in Southeast property sales, including closings on some of the larger or more notable properties. Shane’s “best practices” philosophy led to price per foot and cap rate benchmarks for retail, office and medical, still standing as records. He has been particularly sought out to handle assets with issues, such as with environmental hazards, vacancy problems, seismic issues, and other objections of a technical nature.
