Rodney Schwalbach with ESG Realty Advisors
ESG Realty Advisors offers no-cost commercial tenant representation services to business that are looking to lease space. Rodney only represents Tenants, never Landlords or Property Managers – giving his clients the peace of mind that they are negotiating with a real estate professional on their team.
Rodney grew up in Houston and received a degree in Business Management from Texas State.
Rodney and his wife are both accomplished scuba divers. Rodney had ambitions of owning a dive shop in Corpus Christi but accepted an offer to live in Egypt near the pristine beaches where he was a dive instructor after college. Today he, his wife, son and two daughters live on Lake Travis.
Moving back to the states he began a career in Human Resources. Rodney quickly rose from a clerk in a high-tech company to HR Manager and then Director of HR and Operations. It was in that role that he became an astute lease negotiator. “I loved it! Unlike being an HR Manager, buildings don’t call in sick or get into conflicts with one another.”
Today Rodney represents only tenants, helping them find the ideal commercial space and negotiating their leases. He studies the market daily in order to know what properties are available. Rodney’s business has grown rapidly – primarily by word-of-mouth. “I know the market, I know the buildings, and I speak the landlord’s language. Plus I know how to negotiate the best deal for my clients.”
Favorite food? Sushi. When our first daughter was only 4 years old, her favorite food became Sushi. Obviously I had to learn how to make great Sushi myself or go broke buying it!
Dream vacation? Are you kidding? For a diver that’s really easy. Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, of course.
A celebrity you’d like to meet? George Clooney…because he owns a pot belly pig.
