Lemoyne PA — Three years into their secure jobs with a leading realtor, fraternity brothers Gary Nalbandian and William Siverling decided to start their own firm that would work only with commercial and industrial real estate.
In 1970, NAI CIR was the first and only firm in Central Pennsylvania with such a focus.
Since then, the commercial and industrial real estate industry has become specialized and consolidated, with some very large multinational corporations working in offices worldwide with tens of thousands of employees. NAI CIR, however, has maintained local ownership. Although the company is affiliated with NAI Global — the world’s largest managed network of commercial real estate firms — its focus remains on serving Central Pennsylvania.
“We have been here so long that we have developed very deep local ties,” said President Robin Zellers. “We have been very successful locally and nationally.”
His company represents buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants in acquisitions and dispositions, investment sales, leasing/subleasing, sale/leasebacks, site selection, build-to-suits, analysis, market research, consulting, strategic planning and property management.
NAI CIR’s long list of accolades includes numerous CoStar Power Broker Awards, as well as several honors from NAI Global. “The president of NAI Global has called us one of the top 5 percent of NAI firms worldwide,” Zellers said. “That is a big accomplishment.”
