Great Relationships, Great Results

It’s still true that ‘location, location, location’ are the three things that matter in property.  The right tenants, though, are the drivers of great project success.  The role we play (and it’s one we cherish) is finding the opportunity of a great location and connecting the right people and resources to generate great results.

When we pull our teams together at the beginning of an opportunity and land at the end with doors open, jobs and returns created it still feels like the first time we did it.  And it’s a genuine pleasure. The business we’ve grown thrives even in challenging times because of a results-focused life cycle approach.  It underpins everything we do. 

Continental makes acquisitions, develops, finds the right tenants for strong project starts, builds, completes leasing to capacity, manages properties and executes disposition to the right people at the optimal moment. As a multi-disciplinary development company, we can also provide any of our services to partners who share our goal of great results for all involved.

We have a great story to tell that literally stretches coast-to-coast and started when we noticed our office furnishings clients in Columbus, Ohio might like a little office space. We hope you’ll enjoy learning more about us and what we do at Continental Real Estate Companies.

Continental has been a great partner in both strategic and practical matters.  Their relationships and knowledge of the Ohio market continue to be instrumental in our site selection success.  As our partner in on-going Ohio Giant Eagle stores development, the Continental Building Company teams work seamlessly with us now.  They bring speed and efficiencies because of their expertise in grocery development and their familiarity with how we strategically design and build our stores.
