Local Market Insights

Being a part of SVN provides SVN | Southgate Realty, LLC clients with the advantage of global reach, but for the disposition of these developments the company’s bedrock will always be the South Mississippi market, which includes Hattiesburg, Jackson, Wiggins, Gulfport and Biloxi.

SVN | Southgate Realty, LLC understands the unique nature of multifamily in the South Mississippi region and offers tailored local market insights accordingly. Every market research report, underwriting evaluation, and asset management plan SVN | Southgate Realty, LLC creates incorporates the local market knowledge we have developed as a full-service multifamily brokerage actively involved in its community. The current multifamily management portfolio consists of 17 apartment communities with nearly 900 units providing a data rich basis from which to evaluate new asset management plans and underwrite brokerage opportunities with a reliable understanding of market conditions.

SVN | Southgate Realty, LLC also incorporates the extensive multifamily development knowledge of Managing Director, Gene Carothers, CCIM, into all facets of multifamily analysis. Gene has overseen the development of over 620 multifamily units in his commercial real estate career. In 2009, Gene was recognized by the Home Builders Association of Mississippi with the award for best new multifamily development in Mississippi for The Lakes at Turtle Creek Apartment Homes which he developed with York Developments. The Lakes at Turtle Creek has since received The Grand award from the Mississippi Multifamily Council six consecutive years for best multifamily community in Mississippi.

Managing Director, Chamberlan Carothers, CCIM, CPM, currently serves as president for the Mississippi chapter of the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM), the state board of directors for the Mississippi Apartment Association, and past state president for the Mississippi Multifamily Council.

Developing a company focus on maintaining active involvement in professional Mississippi apartment associations not only provides the SVN | Southgate Realty, LLC’s team with the leading industry training and education they need to exceed client asset management expectations, but also links the brokerage team with direct access to active multifamily buyers and off-market sales opportunities.
