The Arnold Meyer Commercial Real Estate firm has properties that cover all four sides of Indianapolis, and have holdings in Indiana, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio and Florida, They have a myriad of Fortune 500 companies and strong local and regional clients.
Our strategy has been to move away from the type of real estate that the internet now competes with. Arnold Meyer Group rents to many service oriented clients
That strategy has paid off in a big way, and Arnold Meyer’s story is a good one to tell. In 2011, they began with residential real estate. They soon built their inventory, and sold their residential holdings to a European conglomerate, and for a considerable profit. The profits from that sale were the beginning of a campaign to purchase commercial buildings that have garnered very strong results.
