In 1970, NAI CIR was the first and only firm in Central Pennsylvania with such a focus. Since then, the commercial and industrial real estate in- dustry has become special- ized and consolidated, with some very large multinational corporations working in of- fices worldwide with tens of thousands of employees. NAI CIR, however, has maintained local ownership. Although the company is affiliated with NAI Global — the world’s largest managed network of commer- cial real estate firms — its focus remains on serving Central Pennsylvania. “We have been here so long that we have developed very deep local ties,” said President Robin Zellers . “We have been very successful locally and na- tionally.” His company represents buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants in acquisitions and dispositions, investment sales, leasing/subleasing, sale/lease- backs, site selection, build- to-suits, analysis, market re- search, consulting, strategic planning and property man- agement. NAI CIR’s long list of ac- colades includes numerous CoStar Power Broker Awards, as well as several honors from NAI Global. “The president of NAI Global has called us one of the top 5 percent of NAI firms worldwide,” Zellers said. “That is a big accomplishment.” n NAI CIR celebrates 45 years

Combined with its easy access and high vis-

It is situated along a high- traffic retail corridor in Lan- caster County. The company opened its first retail location in 1989 in Frederick, Mary- land, and now has more than 180 stores throughout the east coast. 1831 Hempstead Rd. is one of the company’s newest locations. n
