Columbia, Greenville commercial real estate firms merge > Columbia Business Report

Commercial real estate firms NAI Earle Furman in Greenville and NAI Columbia have merged, a final step in a four-year process among eight local Columbia partners and NAI Earle Furman.

“We are excited that NAI Columbia is officially rolling into our business family,” Jon Good, CEO of NAI Earle Furman said in a news release. “This collaboration will mutually benefit both of our firms with more manpower, added support and additional resources. Together we will be able to better serve our clients throughout South Carolina and beyond.”

NAI Columbia joins NAI Piedmont Triad, a firm based in Greensboro, NC which merged with NAI Earle Furman in 2017.

“We began this partnership four years ago with a plan to ultimately merge the companies,” said Patrick Chambers, principal at NAI Columbia. “NAI Earle Furman has an infectious entrepreneurial spirit and culture that will maximize growth for our shareholders and employees. We could not be happier about what the future holds for our new combined company.”

NAI Columbia was established from a joint venture with NAI Earle Furman along with eight principals that had served as senior brokers with NAI Avant, according to the release. NAI Avant was derived from national real estate developer Edens & Avant, founded in Columbia in 1966. NAI Avant continued serving the Midlands until its sunsetting and reformation as NAI Columbia under new leadership and a new company structure.
