Company Profile

SSG can handle all the tasks required to complete a job

We provide all services necessary for project completion resulting in a cost savings achieved that is not possible when there is fragmentation of services.

Over the years our business has grown in much the same way a building gets developed, from the ground up. SSG's first projects were for our own investment accounts. We found the land in need of development, or the building in need of renovation. We negotiated with neighborhood associations or plowed our way through city bureaucracies. We raised money from investors and obtained funding from financial institutions. We completed the construction process, leased the space, and managed the property through final disposition.

After completing all or part of this process many times during our 29 years in business we have acquired a broad base of knowledge that can be divided for further explanation into 5 major categories. It is our belief that by understanding and participating actively in all of these areas we bring a unique, holistic perspective which benefits our clients.
