North Fulton Business Radio, Episode 493)
Taylor Cox, Director of Acquisition for Denver-based Koelbel and Company, joined host John Ray to share the news of his firm’s first commercial property investment in the North Fulton market, Northridge Center. Taylor talked about his family-owned firm’s investment history, why Atlanta and the North Fulton market specifically offer compelling opportunities, where they see value in the office building segment, and much more.
Nothing is stronger than family—especially when it comes to business.
The notion of creating a legacy that was built upon the right ideals forges a firm foundation that endures. A lasting dynamic that attracts business partners that care about more than the bottom line. And a relationship-driven entity that always puts community first.
In 1952, Walt Koelbel founded just such a family business holding up those exact aspirations. Every day since then, Koelbel and Company has been seeing the possibilities and realizing the potential for Colorado real estate. The vision to try new things. And the willingness to think differently. All in an effort to create developments that people are proud to call home.
Taylor Cox is Director of Acquisition for Koelbel and Company. He is based here in North Fulton and spearheading Koebel’s expansion into the Atlanta market.
Throughout his career, Taylor Cox has developed a skilled approach to analyzing deals and finding value-add opportunities. He religiously tracks market conditions by staying educated on political, economic, and social trends.
He is well-aligned with Koelbel in his vision to venture into unknown territories and he possesses the measured discipline to quickly establish a network of key local contacts and build business from the ground up in any market.
Taylor’s success in assembling and leading fully integrated teams, persisting through unforeseen complications, and securing key partners and investors has enabled him to not only protect but enhance investor capital.
