Commercial Real Estate Comics

Welcome to our Retail Real Estate Comic Strip Center! All comic ideas and drawings are created in-house.

We try to find humor in our daily challenges, our annoyances or just things that we find funny in our daily lives in the retail real estate industry. We try not to take ourselves too seriously. If we generate more smiles than groans, cringes, head scratches or blank stares, we will feel as though we’ve succeeded. We try to generate a new cartoon once a month.
