The Grasso Realty Group Marina Team is at your command...
Offering Superior Expertise and Experience in the Marina Industry
The MARINA TEAM
Grasso Realty Group (GRG) is nationally recognized for its reputation in the fields of consultation, evaluation, and sale of marinas all over the U.S.A.
Over the past nearly 15 years, the Grasso Marina Team has focused on gathering and analyzing information on thousands of marinas, boat yards, and waterfront facilities across the country. Our database enables us to seek out properties that will fit the investment strategy and goals of buyers in a quick and efficient manner with confidence in the information we provide. Consultants, appraisers, chain buyers, and institutional investors, as well as financial institutions, call on us for consultations, advice, and assistance from all over the country. As a result of our assessments, we can honestly say that no other commercial Real Estate Company has the depth, knowledge, and ability to market a marina for its owner's maximum return that we do, because we know marinas and the U.S. marina market better than anyone!
In one year alone, GRG's Marina Team listed $130 million worth of marinas. Four of the marinas sold in less than 4 months and the fifth had been listed in only 90 days.
How do we do it? The Marina Team does not take short cuts. We collect preliminary information on any marina, and then we conduct a site visit. Once the site visit is completed we evaluate all aspects of the property and its operation before recommending a sale price to our clients. Our experiences have shown us that many marina owners/operators often undervalue their property and rarely operate at maximum potential. Using our experience we provide not only accurate information as to its present performance, but also its future potential. Then our Marketing Support Team puts into motion a national sales campaign calling on all aspects of our unique marketing program...Direct mail to potential buyers and sellers on both a Regional and National level, advertise the marina's merits in the media and trade publications, and sending e-mail blasts to the thousands in our National Marina Industry database. Using these resources, GRG is able to reach out to investors from all over the U.S.

In order to meet the challenges of the current financial market and assist our clients further GRG established a division,
EZ Sailing Finance, in 2007. Created to help our clients with their financing needs, EZ Sailing Finance has been one more tool that allows us to provide an array of services to our clients. This financial service, along with our prominence in the National Marina Market and Lou Grasso's experience in the world of finance, has enabled us to complete financing for the sale or refinancing of multiple marinas throughout the United States.
