Robert Jolly, CCIM Named Who’s Who in Birmingham Commercial Real Estate

Birmingham, AL — Robert Jolly, CEO of Retail Specialists, was named Who’s Who for Birmingham Commercial Real Estate by the Birmingham Business Journal.

Who’s Who in CRE consists of the top executives from the largest firms, according to the BBJ’s Book of Lists, as well as professionals who have led transformative projects, developments, or industry groups to know.

Like many industries, Birmingham’s commercial real estate sector is evolving quickly amid the Covid-19 crisis. Many trends that were already evident before March 2020 are now accelerating, particularly in retail and distribution.

But behind those big deals and emerging trends are the individuals who are leading the local CRE scene.

Jolly is the co-founder and CEO of both Retail Strategies and Retail Specialists, delivering the vision of growth while overseeing the day-to-day operations for each brand. Jolly cofounded Retail Specialists in 2005, and it has since become a major player in retail markets around the Southeast, playing an important role in the quickly evolving retail climate.

In the Birmingham Business Journal’s Who’s Who in Commercial Real Estate feature, they are giving readers a look at key names to know in the Magic City’s commercial real estate world.
