Headquartered in St. Louis, we have been a market-leading, full-service commercial real estate brokerage firm since 2000, providing exceptional service and expertise in Eastern Missouri and Southern Illinois. Whether you’re a commercial real estate buyer, seller, owner, tenant or developer, NAI DESCO is your ideal partner given our depth of local market expertise, and our exceptional access to a world of opportunity through the NAI Global network.

History of NAI DESCO

Founded in 2000, NAI DESCO was formed when the Schnuck family partnered with veteran brokers to create an independent firm for the brokerage and management of third-party office, industrial, medical, retail and investment properties.

In 2011, NAI DESCO acquired competitor Coldwell Banker Commercial’s St. Louis brokerage division. This acquisition increased NAI DESCO’s inventory and agents by approximately one-third.

NAI DESCO is the local affiliate of NAI Global, a leading global commercial real estate brokerage firm. NAI Global offices are leaders in their local markets and work in unison to provide clients with exceptional solutions to their commercial real estate needs. NAI Global has more than 325 offices strategically located in 65 countries throughout North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia Pacific, with over 5,800 local market professionals, managing in excess of 1.1 billion square feet of property.  Annually, NAI Global completes over $20 billion in commercial real estate transactions throughout the world.
