Steve Schmautz established SDS Commercial in 1992, with Jay Overholser joining him soon after. Over time a small group of specialists were attracted to the model of business Steve envisioned. That group has largely remained intact for over 30 years.

SDS Commercial:

strategic thinkers

in the field of real estate

SDS Commercial is a small group of creatively independent individuals.  That is central to the vision of our company: a gathering of specialists who enjoy the creative opportunities inherent in real estate marketing & development in an open and flexible environment.  All of our brokers are owners and developers of commercial investment property in their own right.  From multi-family to large industrial projects, new construction to historic restoration, they have first-hand knowledge of what is required for success in the Spokane regional real estate market.

At SDS Commercial you not only have a real estate professional but an established and experienced liaison between you and the real estate community. Our brokers have long-standing relationships with appraisers, architects, environmental surveyors, title officers, closing agents and lenders who can offer financing options.  They will strategically leverage these relationships to help you execute a successful transaction.
