Sara Investment Real Estate



The mission of SARA is to provide value to our investors, tenants, employees and stakeholders through the development and acquisition of quality commercial real estate with an uncompromising commitment to the highest standards of service and integrity.


When Eric Schwartz founded SARA Investment Real Estate in 1997, he had a vision of a client-focused company built on integrity, respect and communication. Today, that vision has become a reality. Over the past 20 years SARA, named in honor of Eric’s wife, has successfully cultivated a diverse portfolio of retail, office, industrial and mixed-use properties throughout the Midwest. Although our portfolio continues to grow, SARA remains an integrity-based company. Our dedicated team of employees is committed to working together on each one of our projects to ensure that Eric’s vision of a forward-thinking, client-centered business is upheld.


Our business is investment real estate. Our strength is the commitment to build ongoing, successful, one-to-one relationships with tenants, investors and business associates in which all profit, grow and succeed. With a skill for uncovering unique properties, recognizing their potential and quickly seizing the opportunity, we have successfully developed an innovative niche. In today’s complex real estate environment, we understand the importance of creating an alliance between the brick and mortar and our partners; and are dedicated to creating strong and reliable real estate solutions.


We listen to the concerns of our tenants, investors, partners and employees in order to positively affect and encourage the progress of the community. Our commitment to innovation and diversification, in addition to maintaining a keen eye on current market trends, keeps us at the forefront of the real estate market. Square foot by square foot, SARA will continue to create new opportunities for our partners. Unlike many real estate companies, our in-house development, investor relations, financial and asset management divisions offer a one-stop shop for all real estate needs; and in turn, provide single-point accountability to our clients.
