President committed to long-term for clients, company

“We are in this business for the long-haul,” said Chris Sadler, president of Allegiancy. “It takes time to build relationships, trust, and a reputation. All of these, Allegiancy has done, and we will continue to build on this.”

Allegiancy is a commercial real estate asset manager focused on growth in secondary markets. The company has made a name for itself by resurrecting troubled properties without requiring a massive capital infusion from ownership.

Central to Allegiancy’s leadership is Chris Sadler. Chris brings a wealth of experience and longstanding relationships from the commercial real estate and financial industries. Today, he uses his proven operating, development, and turnaround experience for Allegiancy.

Chris began his career with Prudential Real Estate Investors (PRU) in Houston and New York, where he was responsible for more than $2 billion in acquisition and sale transactions, and an additional $12 billion as chief equity underwriter.

Next Chris worked for Baring, Houston and Saunders (a partnership with Baring Brothers) in London, where he was responsible for acquisitions and sales transactions in the United Kingdom and Europe.

“PRU gave me the hands-on real estate experience that has guided my career ever since,” said Chris. “Through PRU and Baring Brothers, I have worked in major markets in the United States, Europe, and Asia. I have been through many up and down cycles. I bring this broad institutional perspective and expertise to each of Allegiancy’s clients.”

Chris then left corporate finance to pursue investment and development projects; and with Steve Sadler, formed Allegiancy in 2006. Chris said, “In my experience with large institutions, a client and a real estate deal is only as important as its size to them. I like the fact that at Allegiancy, every deal is important. Every deal can have a major impact for its owners, and we can treat every client with the highest level of care.”

Chris graduated from Vanderbilt University with a bachelor’s in economics. He earned his MBA from Vanderbilt’s Owen Graduate School of Management.

He is married to Jackie, and they are the parents of five children. He enjoys racing cars.

Chris said, “I view Allegiancy as a multi-generational enterprise: from the entrepreneurial values of my grandfather and father, to the longer-term value for my children and grandchildren. My aim is for Allegiancy to be bringing unparalleled value to owners long after I am gone.”
