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 375 offices strategically located throughout North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia Pacific, with 6,000 local market professionals, managing in excess of 1.15 billion square feet of property. Annually, NAI Global completes in excess of $20 billion in commercial real estate transactions throughout the world.
