SVN Nashville is a Music City commercial real estate firm, with an international network 100,000 strong. The SVN story began in 1987 with a vision to create a commercial real estate firm built on a culture of collaboration, a culture in which brokers for both sellers and buyers are included in the process of marketing properties and share in the income generated. The result is that properties are marketed widely and clients receive maximum value. Realizing an opportunity for growth in Nashville, Anthony Lopes, managing director of SVN Investec Realty Services in Memphis, opened a Nashville branch of the international SVN firm in April 2012. With more than 30 years of real estate experience, Lopes heads the SVN Nashville team, which provides commercial sales and leasing services, tenant representation, asset management, property management, corporate services and consultations.
