Since 1999 Bob Swain has specialized in representing owners, users, and developers of commercial real estate in the City of Seattle and North King County. His clients have business and investment interests that are connected strategically, creatively, and culturally within the rapidly changing urban environment of the Seattle Metro Area.
This geographic focus has allowed him to develop a comprehensive and diverse expertise in the leasing, acquisition, and disposition of industrial, mixed-use and office properties. In addition, Bob has developed a keen sense for redevelopment opportunities and the conversion of older industrial properties to more creative and profitable uses.
As a Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM), Bob’s clients have come to rely on him for the market intelligence, strategic planning considerations, and financial analysis that they need in order to make informed real estate decisions for their businesses and investment holdings.
