About Us

About Stratus Property Group

At Stratus Property Group, our clients come first. We were founded from client frustrations and continuously being pushed to the back burner by large and impersonal firms. We knew there was a better way and quickly began to fill the commercial real estate needs in Atlanta, Athens and throughout Georgia. At Stratus, client’s names come first and ahead of ours on letterhead. Having us in your corner means having a team of dedicated and experienced professionals who are not afraid to roll up their sleeves and get the job done.

We are not just here to make promises. Our results-driven approach has an excellent track record of successful closings and satisfied commercial real estate clients throughout Georgia. We ensure you’re getting high-quality service without sacrificing your time, energy or money. That’s why we offer free, no-obligation property analysis and valuation. We don’t require retainer fees on our clients either. Our combination of research, analytics, marketing, and one-on-one customer service allows us to customize and tailor our strategies to fit your needs and not the other way around. Don’t believe us? Hear it straight from our clients or flip through our portfolio to see for yourself.

Long story short:

Whether you are looking to buy, sell, lease or lease out space, our skilled and dedicated agents are ready to meet your commercial real estate needs. Don’t get lost in the corporate shuffle.

Blake Underwood

Principal, Stratus Development Group

Blake attended the University of Georgia where he graduated from Terry College of Business with a Bachelors of Administration degree in Finance. Blake gained his experience in the real estate industry by investing his personal assets to flip and sell houses in the Athens area real estate market. When the market began to deteriorate, Blake focused his investment strategy on student-oriented rental property, and eventually began developing lots and small communities.

After several successful years in the real estate industry and turning around a struggling homeowners’ association, other investors began expressing interest in having him manage their properties and investment decisions. Blake decided to obtain a real estate license and create a full service real estate firm—Athens Real Estate Group.

Today, Blake has partnered with Jeff and Stratus Property Group to found Stratus Development Group. He uses his hard-earned, hands-on experience in the real estate industry to help his clients structure a real estate portfolio to fit their needs and to help manage that portfolio through an ever-changing real estate market.
