EnTrust Realty Advisors is a commercial real estate transaction advisory firm. We redefine investment and leasing services by providing a thoughtful approach to your real estate needs with straightforward expertise and attentive, personal care from the simplest to the most complex transaction.

Our Story

In 2002, an environment characterized by the Arthur Andersen accounting firm debacle, the Enron scandal, the dot-com bubble and the echoes of 9/11, EnTrust was founded on the principles of integrity, relationships and results. We serve both investors and tenants with a unique synthesis of institutional discipline, honesty, creativity and entrepreneurial energy to each assignment.

We have become one of the nation’s premier minority-owned real estate firms, completing $1.5 billion in investment and leasing transactions since our inception. Having long serviced the institutional marketplace, analyzing thousands of leases and hundreds of buildings, we have an intimate grasp of the way building owners think and the way real estate capital works.

Our Principles


We are committed to being honest, ethical and transparent; representing your best interest at all times; earning your trust.


We value building lasting relationships with investors, tenants and the brokerage community through consistent care rather than one-off transactions. These relationships enable us to bring a level of focus and responsiveness to your needs and priorities that other firms tend to overlook.


Excellence in execution and timely solutions define our attention to results. Whether obtaining the highest value for your asset, securing the best leasing terms in the market or identifying the finest opportunities for investment, we are recognized as the “small firm with big results.”
