We strive to create more value than any other commercial real estate company in the country.

We are a boutique real estate company.  Nevertheless, we have the same resources as our multi-billion dollar competitors. You will be confident in our Partnership and our services to you; our overhead is significantly lower, we consistently invest in additional resources, as well as continuous education of our staff.

Each member of our team has specific strengths amplified by our proprietary platform. Many brokerage firms have large numbers of agents competing against each another. We believe that while this gives a “bigger is better” front, it causes a break down in communication and creates internal conflict of interest.

His strong work ethic has put him in the Atlanta Commercial Board Million Dollar Club every year he has been in the business.

Great customer service is his top priority. Chris recently completed Harvard Law School’s Program on Negotiation, where he further honed skills to create successful outcomes for his clients.

His foundation for a superior client experience began while working for 2 of Atlanta’s top wealth management firms, Homrich Berg & GenSpring Family Offices.

During this time, Chris gained great analytical skills and became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™.

Jared provides deep expertise in financial underwriting and prides himself on maintaining a focus on deals that are fundamentally sound with a relentless priority of always protecting and growing investor capital. Prior to commercial real estate, Jared spent 8 years as a business consultant for one of the largest global consulting and outsourcing companies in the world, where his fiscal and operational strategies provided his clients upwards of $50 million in annual savings.

Bob Tipps

Senior Advisor

Bob is the Principal of Tipps Realty Services, LLC, a commercial real estate brokerage firm he started in 2001.  He began his real estate career in the greater Atlanta area in 1973 after relocating from Houston, TX, and for the first 14 years specialized primarily in managing properties owned by large corporate entities such as Prudential Insurance Company of America, B. F. Saul, Inc., and Citicorp. 

               In 1981 Bob changed his focus from managing commercial properties to marketing and leasing them.  His first job in this arena was that of Marketing/Leasing Director for the 126-year old real estate/banking firm of B. F. Saul, Inc.  At that time this company was just beginning the development of the 687,000 square foot office park known as Circle 75 located in the Cumberland/Galleria area.  In addition to leasing Circle 75 he also supervised leasing efforts and coordinated the marketing activities of B.F. Saul properties in New Orleans, LA and Louisville, KY until 1987.

               Bob furthered his experience in leasing by taking on the position of Vice President of Marketing and Leasing with the Newleaf Corporation from 1987 through 1990.  There he worked on the difficult task of leasing distressed bank owned properties in such major markets as Kansas City, MO., Cincinnati, OH, and Orlando, FL, in addition to his duties in Atlanta.

               It was in 1991 that Bob joined AFCO Realty, Inc. and had his first exposure to representing tenants as opposed to exclusively representing landlords.  He remained with AFCO for the next ten years and became Senior Vice President for that firm before starting his own brokerage company in 2001.

               Bob is a long-time member of the Atlanta Board of Realtors and was a Phoenix award winner in 2002.  He has worked diligently over the years on a volunteer basis to raise money for such worthy causes as the American Cancer Society, Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, and various other charities.  He is a 1966 graduate of Oklahoma City University, a former officer in the U.S. Army Reserves, and he and his wife, Linda (who is also his business partner), currently reside in Woodstock.  Bob spends his leisure time playing tennis, shooting skeet and sporting clay, and maintaining his 5½ acre wooded homesite in Cherokee County.

    Recently Bob was offered the opportunity to serve as broker of record for the newly formed up-and-coming brokerage firm of Cecil & Campbell Advisors, LLC.  Bob has said that what is especially gratifying about this opportunity is that he initially helped train Kacey Cecil when he was a newly hired agent at AFCO Realty in 2005, and he’s pleased to see how successful Kacey and his partner, Chris Campbell, have become.

His experience working on the residential side of real estate allowed him to advance his abilities in building genuine and sustainable relationships with clients that go the extra mile. 

 Matt joined Cecil & Campbell in 2018 where he brings his focus and passion to tenant advisory services and commercial real estate investment in an atmosphere centered on integrity, quality and prioritizing the clients’ best interests at all times.  

 Matt lives off the Historic Marietta Square with his two children, Oliver and Anna Jayne. In his downtime, he enjoys taking advantage of all that his local city has to offer – from hiking Kennesaw Mountain to taking his kids up to the square for ice cream.

Nathan LeSueur

Information Tech

Meet Nathan. He knows computers.

In fact, Nathan grew up working with computers. After watching WAR GAMES as a child, he became hooked on the idea of communicating with computers, so he ran a BBS (“bulletin board system” for you non-computer people) from his bedroom in middle school. It was during this time he learned about modems, email, and online gaming. In college, he parlayed this experience into a job working at a regional Internet provider, which eventually took him to BellSouth, AT&T, and Cox Communications where he spent a combined twelve years and worked in networking and system administration. He then spent over seven years at Akamai Technologies helping many Fortune 500 global e-commerce companies deliver their content quickly and securely.  

Nathan joined Cecil & Campbell in 2019 as the IT Mastermind, where he will serve to develop and implement a custom technology platform for the company. Using modern data driven methods, his contributions are designed for providing value to the team and their clients.

Nathan grew up in Marietta and lives in Atlanta with his wife and two kids.
