Our History

  • Robert A. Weigel, attorney, began his career in 1962 with a private family trust, specializing in real property investments and management. Robert Weigel learned the value of hard work at 16 as a member of the Omaha Hod Carrier Union, put himself thru Law School, and together with his wife of over 55 years, Jody, set out to build a lasting portfolio of high quality commercial properties nationwide. Today the portfolio spans 12 states from Florida to Hawaii, with over two million square feet, anchored by such household names as Safeway/Vons, Macy’s, Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, HyVee, Outback, Bank of the West, Westroads National Bank, St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, Macadamia Nuts of Hawaii, Mimi’s, Heartland Foods, Hertz, 7-Eleven, Quality Inn and Suites, JC Penney, Fresh Thyme Farmers Market, Best Buy, Wells Fargo, Old Florida National Bank, Staples, Aspen Dental, Cheddars, Subway, and Domino’s Pizza.
  • In 1976 Second Bicentennial Properties was established as the financing vehicle for a portfolio of Safeways in Hawaii, Texas, California, Iowa, and Colorado. These were fully amortized and free and clear by 1994, when the name was changed to Realty Trust Group Inc, a Delaware Corporation.
  • Today it is the Corporate Trustee for $175 million of properties, mostly leased to or anchored by top tier national retail tenants. The portfolio is conservatively leveraged, with approximately 10% kept in cash or liquid reserves.

Our People

  • The portfolio is managed by Andrew Weigel, CCIM, CPM, managing member of RTGC, LLC based in Murrieta, CA, and Michael Marsh, president of MJM, Inc. based in Lincoln, Nebraska.
