Corporate Real Estate Advisors

Stuart Holcombe, President & CEO: 

Stuart Holcombe has over twenty years of work experience in corporate real estate and is President and CEO of Corporate Real Estate Advisors (CREA), an international commercial real estate firm based in Atlanta, Georgia. Stuart’s practice is dedicated to serving and representing office, industrial and medical tenants and buyers only.  Since he does not believe it is possible to negotiate from both sides of the table, he does not take listings, nor represent landlords or sellers, not now, not ever, never.  Stuart understands the needs of corporate tenants, their objectives and the value of their time.  He works in partnership, on his client’s behalf, without conflict of interest and with total objectivity.

Stuart founded the firm in 1990 following a 10-year career as an executive with regional and international commercial real estate organizations. Mr. Holcombe specializes in representing Fortune 500 companies, professional firms, medical organizations and emerging growth organizations for the acquisition and disposition of their office space requirements.  He brings more than 20 years’ experience in tenant representation.  His clients include US Healthworks, Bosche Corporation, Holger Christiansen, Stibo Systems, Philip Morris, CCI Europe, Rockwell Collins, Trade Commission of Denmark, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and CeloNova BioSciences.

Mr. Holcombe’s previous positions included tenures as Leasing and Construction Director of Combined America Development in Dallas, Texas, where his experience included development of shopping centers, apartment complexes and office buildings.  As Vice President for Portman Barry Investments in Atlanta, Georgia, his experience included representing landlords and tenants in leases, renewals and dispositions.

Stuart holds a real estate broker license in Georgia and has been awarded the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation from the CCIM Institute in Chicago.  CCIM is the recognized expert in the disciplines of commercial and investment real estate.  Stuart is a graduate of LSU and majored in finance, architecture and marketing.  He is also a member of the Atlanta Board of Realtors, the Commercial Association of Realtors, the Danish American Chamber of Commerce, The Buckhead Club, and is a charter member of the Atlanta-Peachtree Rotary. Mr. Holcombe has served for many years on the ITRA Global Board of Directors, in many capacities including Vice Chairman, Treasurer, and most recently as Secretary.
