A better approach

to commercial real estate.

When Steve Schmautz started SDS Commercial in 1992, he envisioned a new business model – a custom agency run by specialists who think strategically, connect relationally, and work practically. Steve was joined by experienced specialists who were attracted to his personalized approach, and that team has remained largely intact for over 30 years.

The SDS Commercial difference.

Expert Guidance

Our team has years of hands-on experience. All our brokers own and develop commercial investment property themselves, so we know the ins and outs of the Spokane real estate market firsthand – from multi-family to large industrial projects, new construction to historic restoration. We’re committed to doing what it takes to make sure you succeed in this market.


Personal Service

We’re a group of specialists who enjoy creative opportunities in real estate marketing and development in an open and flexible environment. As a custom agency, we provide a level of personal and individualized service that’s strategically tailored to your needs. So, whether you need an investment analysis of complex projects or facilities management of small properties, we’ve got you covered.


Seamless Transactions

We value our clients, and we work hard to build rock-solid relationships. At SDS Commercial, you not only get a caring real estate professional but an experienced liaison to the real estate community as well. Our brokers establish long-standing relationships with appraisers, architects, environmental surveyors, title officers, closing agents, and lenders who can offer financing options. And we leverage these relationships to give you a seamless transaction.
