Lewis Real Estate
Lewis Real Estate’s combination of local market experience and deep community involvement has been significant in the development of industrial, retail, and commercial real estate properties.
Founder Bob Lewis established his company in 1985, starting with a single residential property and gradually building a thriving business. Today the company manages a portfolio of office buildings, retail centers, and industrial parks and offers acquisition and brokerage services.
Together with his son Martin, who joined in 1988, Lewis Real Estate began work in the early 1990s purchasing and developing key commercial properties with various groups of investors.
Lewis Real Estate became actively involved in community initiatives targeting the region’s long-range development, brokering many partnerships to procure and develop key commerce areas. It was these far-sighted enterprises that established Asheville’s strong economic foundation in the form of industrial parks, such as the Vista Industrial Center and Enka Commerce Park, that became critical to bringing major employers, jobs, and businesses to the area.
“We didn’t take the ‘big growth’ route of other firms. Instead, we’ve maintained a small but highly-experienced team that remains personally involved in each project. Our primary goal is to make sure each venture is successful and to continue building on the relationships and respect earned from our clients and partners.”Bob Lewis, Founder
