Our Story

SVN | KOVA (formerly KOVA Commercial) was founded in 1990 by providing our community with responsible and responsive real estate management. The firm began by serving investors in both multi-family and commercial properties throughout the region. Recently, we have affiliated with SVN, a national network of independent real estate firms so that we can specialize in brokerage, property management and insurance in collaboration with the SVN offices nationwide. As a result, SVN | KOVA provides a broad base of support and expertise to clients for investment, sales, and leasing in all CRE Asset classes. In addition, our advisors have intimate market and product knowledge and each brings decades of experience, professional service, and advisory services.


SVN | KOVA conducts its business on the basis of clearly defined business principles. In all our activities, we carefully weigh the interests of our stakeholders: clients, shareholders, employees, business partners and society at large, before making decisions. As a team, we pride ourselves on a longstanding culture of accountability, integrity and ethical business practice. We embrace change, challenge, and the prevailing norms, and search for new opportunities. SVN | KOVA provides innovative and creative strategies and solutions to the seemingly impossible time after time.


Through a set of core values, delivering outstanding client service is one of our key goals, and we believe that establishing trust is central to successful and lasting relationships with our clients. Therefore, we approach our client relationships with a focus on understanding and responding to client needs, delivering on our promises, increasing accessibility to our team and consistently providing fair treatment to all clients.

The team of Advisors at SVN | KOVA are trained, knowledgeable and experienced in all types of CRE investment opportunities.  Through industry best practices, a thorough understanding of current market conditions and trends, our advisors become an integral resource when making complex real estate decisions.
