UPDATED — Realty World Alliance continues to grow, so owner Greg Fox is moving his west-side office to accommodate that.
“Frankly, I’m nearly doubling my space, so it’s giving us a lot more room to grow,” Fox says.
Currently, Realty World has 3,700 square feet at Northwest Centre at 13th and Tyler. It’s moving to 6,800 square feet at 6617 W. Central, which is a former Blockbuster site across from Two Brothers BBQ.
“We decided that we would rather have a stand-alone building,” Fox says. “People seem to find you a lot easier.”
Fox and Troy Farha and Nathan Farha of NAI Martens handled the deal for the lease.
The move should happen in early March. Fox thinks he’ll initially need about 4,000 square feet of the 6,800 square feet, and the rest will be room to grow.
“My business everywhere is growing,” he says. “I’m a blessed man.”
Realty World also has an east-side office near Central and Woodlawn and one in Derby at 620 Mulberry.
The business started in 1999 as Alliance Marketing Group and handled new homes only.
Fox changed the name in 2004 and now handles existing homes as well as new ones.
He believes there are a few reasons why Realty World is doing so well.
“We really lead the city in technology,” Fox says. “We’re kind of on the cutting edge.”
He says the company also is a “very, very service-oriented brokerage.”
Fox says he didn’t have any complaints at Northwest Centre, which is an Occidental Management property.
“They’re very good landlords.”
