AREA is the hometown team that plays in the big leagues. Our size and scope allow us to be nimble and apply a team-driven approach while providing best-in-class service.

Since 2002, AREA has transacted over $2.5 billion dollars across its office, retail, industrial and multi-family brokerage divisions. AREA’s property management scope ranges from major office towers to free-standing industrial buildings to neighborhood shopping centers. Project Management services encompass new construction to tenant fit-outs to asset repositions across a multitude of industries.

Established in 2002, AREA Real Estate Advisors is the leading independent commercial real estate firm in the Kansas City metropolitan area.

In May of 2016, investors within RED Brokerage and Platform Ventures (formerly Mariner Real Estate Management) purchased the firm from its previous ownership, creating what is now called AREA Real Estate Advisors.  Our name speaks to the versatility and creativity of the people at AREA. Whether it be the area of an office, industrial building, retail space, land or ground-up development, we are all about the environment in which our clients are invested. We operate with unprecedented strategy using real estate to its greatest potential for our clients.  Consistent with the founders’ vision, AREA continues a growth strategy that is uniquely entrepreneurial, fostered by a culture that celebrates and supports innovation. The leadership at AREA and Platform Ventures capitalize on each company’s deep resources to expand and elevate the level of service each provides to its customers and investors.

AREA is proud to be celebrating 20 years!
