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 through law school, and together with his wife of over 60 years, Jody, set out to build a lasting portfolio of high quality commercial properties nationwide.

In 1976 Second Bicentennial Properties was established as the financing vehicle for a portfolio of 33 Safeways in Hawaii. Texas, California, lowa 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 the portfolio spans 10 states from Hawaii to Florida, with over two million square feet. The Corporate Trustee is valued over $200 million dollars of properties and this portfolio is conservatively leveraged, with approximately 10% kept in cash or liquid reserves. Additionally the majority of the portfolio is anchored by household names in the grocery, retail and office industry, who are leaders in their field.
