This means we will be able to close transactions in any of these offices, which will be a tremendous convenience for our clients." In addition to extending the M|H|S service area into Coweta County, M|H|S Managing Partner Nat Hardwick said the merger meets a growing demand for the firm to expand its commercial real estate services.

Thanks to our focus in this area and our deep commitment to customer service, we are now fortunate to have the largest share of the residential real estate closings market in Atlanta," Hardwick said. "Now, we are seeing demand grow for commercial real estate services, including handling the closing of SBA loans. Our merger with Kalish & Associates will increase our capacity to meet this burgeoning need--which is particularly strong south of Atlanta, where Kalish & Associates is based."
