Odyssey’s Las Vegas Team
Odyssey was founded in 2007 with a mission of assembling a local investment portfolio by providing acquisition, asset management and leasing services to commercial real estate investors in Las Vegas, Nevada. Our business evolved rapidly in 2008 as real estate values fell sharply and lenders, loan servicers and institutional investors began requiring local expertise and service providers in managing troubled assets. In addition to owning and operating commercial properties, Odyssey primarily provides brokerage and consulting services to lenders, servicers and owners.
