About Us

Stratus Property Group was founded on the idea that the commercial real estate industry needed an overhaul. We were tired of seeing clients get pushed to the back burner by large firms that are more worried about getting listings than getting rid of their listings. At Stratus, we make sure to put our client’s name before the name on our letterhead, and having us in your corner means having a team of dedicated individuals who aren’t afraid to roll up their sleeves and get the job done.
And we’re not here just to make big promises – our work speaks for itself. Our results-driven approach ensures that you’re getting high-quality service without sacrificing your time or money. That’s why we offer free, no-obligation property analyses and don’t force retainer fees on our clients. Our combination of research, analytics, marketing, and one-on-one customer service allows us to tailor our strategies to fit your needs, not the other way around. We pride ourselves on being strategic planners and asset managers and strive to deliver the best return from all available investment options. Don’t believe us? Hear it straight from our clients or flip through our portfolio to see for yourself.
Long story short: we’ve worked with the big guys, and while we learned a lot from them, we don’t want to be like them. Don’t get lost in the corporate shuffle. Experience the Stratus difference.
Stratus is proud to be part of the 2019 Bulldog 100, hosted by the University of Georgia’s alumni association. Centurion Investments, an internal arm of Stratus, was named the No. 22 fastest-growing business!

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.
