AUSTIN–The net lease investment brokerage firm, Sands Investment Group has expanded its Texas presence with an office in Austin. The office will be headed by Max Freedman and Elan Sieder.

“Our plan is to strategically expand SIG into markets where we know we can serve our clients best,” says Chris Sands, founder of SIG. “I’m confident that by using our unique subsector-specific platform in which our agents gain the enhanced insight and market knowledge they need to represent their clients successfully, this office will quickly grow to be a hub for SIG in the South while providing the service that our company has become known for.”

The new Austin office is the company’s first in Texas. It also has offices in Santa Monica, CA; Charleston, SC; and Philadelphia, PA.

Freedman is one of SIG’s top agents. He has been with the company since its beginning, four years ago, and has worked to develop and recruit new agents. Throughout his time at SIG, he’s closed 90 transactions along with $86 million in current listing inventory.

Before joining SIG, Sieder previously worked at UBS Wealth Management and Peak Financial Partners. He specializes in the Dollar Store sector, having been involved in the purchase and sale of more than $55 million worth of real estate.

“Max and Elan are two of our most capable, talented and focused team members and I’m extremely excited and confident having them head up this new office,” Sands says.
