KDS Commercial Properties, LLC, a Greenville-based commercial real estate firm, announces the addition of Travis Lacey and Nathan Long to lead KDS’ real estate investment team. KDS’ new real estate investment team will strengthen acquisition, investment and development capabilities as Lacey and Long work with investors and business owners to find strategic real estate solutions to realize their long-term investment goals.

Lacey has over fourteen years of commercial real estate experience in various brokerage, development and operational management capacities with a focus on multi-family, office and retail assets. Prior to joining KDS, he held the position of Director of Leasing and Property Management with RealtyLink, overseeing lease administration and management staff responsible for over 20 shopping centers totaling three million square feet and over 200 active leases.

Long co-founded Point Place Resources to aid investors in the long-term strategy and ongoing oversight of their investment properties, and he most recently served as the Director of Acquisitions and Asset Management for RealtyLink where he launched RealtyLink’s first fund with Assets Under Management (AUM) of over $60 million. He also secured over $500 million in debt and equity, sourced and managed the acquisition of over $150 million in cash-flowing properties and underwrote over three million square feet of actual development projects.
