Cypress Commercial & Investment Real Estates Announces Strong Year-End Results

COLUMBIA, South Carolina – Cypress Commercial & Investment Real Estate, a leading commercial real estate brokerage company, announces year-end results for 2023 of 29 real estate transactions representing a value of more than $29 million.

The year-end numbers represent a nearly 50% increase in the number of transactions and a 22% increase in the value of transactions over the prior year.

“I am incredibly proud of our brokerage team’s performance in 2023. The growth of our business during a challenging year of higher interest rates and market uncertainty is the result of our team’s hard work, expertise and commitment to our clients,” said Mark James, Broker in Charge and Managing Partner of Cypress Commercial and Investment Real Estate. “Although we continue to face market headwinds and the wild card of an election year, we remain optimistic that 2024 will be a good year for commercial real estate with stabilized interest rates and strong demand for commercial properties. We look forward to continuing to provide superior service and innovative solutions to our clients.”

• Negotiation of a long-term lease for RSi (Receivable Solutions, LLC) in their relocation to the entire top floor of 1441 Main St., formerly occupied by Wells Fargo. The 20,048-square-foot relocation was the largest new office lease along Main Street year-to-date in 2023.
