Gene Kansas | Commercial Real Estate (GK | CRE), founded in 2003, was launched with the mission of "not being confused with any other commercial real estate firm". Gene Kansas, founder, created that mission from a community perspective, a customer service perspective, and from a creative perspective. "We offer the same experience and professionalism as the big brokerage firms, but we use more insight, more creativity and more social information to deliver results", says Kansas. Specializing in in-town Atlanta, GK | CRE approaches real estate from a fresh point of view, considering the "people behind the property" and the context of their commercial real estate in the community.
GK | CRE buys, sells and leases commercial real estate. With the majority of its clients being investors, developers, large non-profits and creative professional firms, GK | CRE has delivered a range of urban landmarks in concert with community standards and clients needs, garnering several honors including Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles "20 under 40" along with silver and bronze awards from the American Society of Interior Designers to name a few.
The company currently represents more than $250 million in assets and over 1.5 million square feet in listings and brokerage assignments. Its notable client list includes such well-known business names as Halpern Enterprises, Novare Group, the Atlanta History Center, Alternative Apparel, The Integral Group, the JCC, Pope and Land, Dewberry Capital Corporation, Task Force for the Homeless, Gresham Smith Partners, Steve Nygren, Grammy Award Winning Zac Brown Band, Grammy Award Winning Producer Ben Allen, Octane Coffee, Aurora Coffee, Burger King and Arden's Garden to name a few.

Founder Gene Kansas marries a well-honed entrepreneurial spirit with his deep reverence for community cohesion.

He has been invited back four times since graduating to judge the school's annual business plan competition.
In addition to his business success since arriving in Atlanta, Kansas has devoted countless hours to community service promoting the arts, historic presevation, and greenspace conservation.
