$1.1 billion

Sands Investment Group has been recognized as one of Inc 5000’s fastest growing private companies in America two years in a row

In 2010 Chris set out to form Sands Investment Group, a firm that would focus on buying and selling net lease properties. His vision was to lead a highly specialized and knowledgeable company able to provide clients with a level of service unprecedented in the industry. A few short years later, the result is one of the fastest growing and most successful net lease companies in the country, with advisors that are among the most distinguished and sought after in the industry.

Since 2020, through Chris’ pronounced leadership, SIG has doubled in size, expanded beyond net lease and gained recognition as one of Inc 5000’s fastest growing private companies in America two years in a row. This past year, Chris and team exclusively listed and sold $3.4 billion across 40 states in the key areas of medical, convenience, industrial, restaurant, shopping centers, automotive, early education, drugstore and self-storage. Chris’ noteworthy transactions includes a 31-unit C-store portfolio for $61 million.
