“We are really pleased with the work that Marco and King Industrial Realty did selling our 9.8 acre, three building industrial property in Gainesville. We had previously listed it with another, more established local firm in the area who was unable to find us a buyer. Marco was able to get us multiple offers and helped us select the best one. From contract signing, through due diligence and to the closing, he was there to guide us and help along the way. If I ever need to sell again, I know who to call.”

Atlanta ranks in the top 10 for total space under construction in office, industrial and retail, and the universities contribute to highly educated workforce, CBRE said.
