A realty company has found a new home for itself in Downtown Fresno, sharing space with three other companies to form a one-stop shop for property buyers.
Dart Realty and Property Management announced in a press release Monday its move into the Hotel Virginia building at 2131 Kern St. from its previous location at Shaw Avenue and Fresno Street.
The brokerage firm will share the space with Sayland Property Management, which like Dart Realty, is owned by parent company Dart Group Ltd.
New Horizon Insurance Agency and Veterans Home Loans will also operate there, to “offer customers a one-stop shop for real estate services,” according to a news release.
The 3,400 square-foot space was previously occupied by Boese Commercial. Other neighbors in the Hotel Virginia include Bitwise’s Hashtag coworking space in the basement and BoxCar Cafe
“We decided to partner together and move downtown so clients have one place to go to have an expert assist them in every aspect of real estate whether it’s buying or selling, investing, or becoming a landlord,” said Doug Dart, broker and owner of Dart Realty. “All three partners can help with one stop excellent service. You get the personal connection aspect of a small business with locals connecting you with the power of a big city real estate brokerage.”
A grand opening and open house will be held on April 24 at 3:30 p.m.
As part of the open house, Doug Dart’s other business venture, South of Shaw Beer Co. — a microbrewery in the works — will be serving their own craft beers. Dart plans to open a brick-and-mortar taproom and brewery in the Downtown Fresno Ale Trail corridor near Tioga Sequoia Craft Brewery on Fulton Street by next year.
