COMMERCIAL & INDUSTRIAL REAL ESTATE - SilverTree Realty represents a wide range of clients across many different industries, from the local Mom & Pop to Fortune 500 Companies we are here to connect clients with quality assets! 

TENANT REPRESENTATION - While SilverTree Realty represents traditional Buyers, Sellers, and Landlords, we recognize the need for expertise in Tenant Representation services in Columbia, Missouri. In a market where the landlord is king, the goals of a Tenant are very different from the goals of a landlord. SilverTree Realty gives leverage and power back to the Tenant through education, negotiation, and creativity.

DEVELOPMENT - We practice a multifaceted business process, encompassing activities that range from the renovation and re-lease of existing buildings to the site selection, purchase of raw land, and the sale of developed land or parcels.

PROPERTY MANAGEMENT - The operation, control, and oversight of real estate as used in its most broad terms. Management indicates a need to be cared for, monitored and accountability given for its use.
