We also work with single unit operators to publicly traded franchisors in advising financing options, site selections and construction management through our industry leading partnerships.
Our primary role is to become a one-stop shop for all of your real estate needs. Our development partners can provide turnkey build-to-suits and our investment team can structure leaseback financing on existing stores and self developed sites.
Working with Munir and Rahil was an absolute game-changer for our gas station deal. I couldn’t be happier with the final result, and I’m eagerly looking forward to collaborating with the team on future dispositions and acquisitions!
We worked with Clifton McCrory and team with Sands Investment Group to sell our entire real estate portfolio through a series of individual transactions with multiple buyers. They put together an excellent pricing and marketing strategy at the beginning and worked hard to execute on that strategy. They generated plenty of competition on each of the properties in our portfolio to get us competitive offers, provided excellent and thoughtful guidance on responding to offers and to the market, and managed the coordination of multiple closing with multiple buyers proficiently. We would confidently recommend working with Clifton’s team.
Rahill Lakhani and Munir Meghjani continue to go above and beyond. Even after doing over a dozen of deals with them, they keep impressing me with their creativity, resourcefulness and work ethic. Their industry knowledge combined with their forethought makes them one of the best brokers I have worked with. Whether it’s a small or big deal, it is always a pleasure doing business with them. Can’t recommend them enough!
With Andy Chana’s help throughout the due diligence process I was able to close on the transaction earlier than expected and collect a majority of April rent. Great Job Andy! Looking forward to many more transactions with you.
As a real estate attorney, I had the pleasure of closing 2 ground lease sales with Sands Investment Group in Michigan in 1 year. Each sale was for a separate Client. I found that their ability to market and procure suitable Purchasers was above my expectations. In one case, a Purchaser terminated the Purchase Agreement and they provided another Purchaser within a week. It is rare to find people who it is pleasure to deal with, are professionals who know the market, perform and are extremely helpful throughout the process. Sands Investment Group, and especially Max Freedman and Will Schuhmacher were all of the above and I would highly recommend them.
Munir was absolutely amazing to work with. Throughout the whole process, from submitting the contract all the way to closing, Munir made the process unbelievably easy and painless. I would recommend Sands Investment Group anytime. Two thumbs up!!

In that time, we have worked together on everything from a single store disposition to large portfolio dispositions and acquisitions. I trust him to work with my team and handle all of our real estate needs.
I have known Mr. Max Freedman and Mr. Chris Sands of the Sands Investment Group (SIG) personally for a number of years as reputable real estate advisors and investment sales professionals in the commercial real estate and oil & gas retail industry. Originally Mr. Freedman and Mr. Sands were introduced to me during my tenure as the Vice president of Real Estate and New Store Development for 7-Eleven Inc. Both of these gentleman are respected and maintain an impressive track record of selling new retail developments & properties for me and others in the real estate investment community.
