MEET THE TEAM
PAULA A. NAHMIAS
Chief Executive officer
Paula Nahmias opened the Arnold Meyer Group in 2011 and is the sole member. She has been a broker and investor for over 25 years. She has purchased 75 commercial buildings as well as numerous residential properties. She and her highly experienced management team have proven to be excellent operators. Year after year, the team has continued to maintain both a high occupancy rate and a collection percentage rate into the 95-plus percentile.
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 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 began a campaign to purchase commercial buildings that have garnered very strong results.
