Building Solutions for Businesses

AS Realty Investors has a solid track record of helping healthcare operators find new locations to help meet the growing need for medical services. 

The company, founded in 1994, and operated by Avi Schlesinger and his son Adam, works directly with healthcare partners to place and develop medical office buildings, skilled nursing facilities, nursing homes, acute rehabilitation hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, and behavioral health hospitals in the Western United States.

For several years, AS Realty Investors has depended on the expertise of the commercial real estate team at Bank of Nevada to finance these new developments. The last four projects, representing nearly 65 million dollars in financing, have all been handled by Bank of Nevada’s Senior Commercial Real Estate Lender Dennis Balletto and Executive Vice President Bill Oakley.

Avi Schlesinger says he originally came to Bank of Nevada when another bank backed out of a project.

“When I was looking to finance a hospital project during the recession, a bank that I thought I already had a commitment from backed out of the project,” said Avi Schlesinger. “After speaking with Dennis Balletto at Bank of Nevada, I quickly realized he had an intimate knowledge of the property type that we develop. At that point I knew we found a financial institution we could work with, and that was committed to us.” he added.

AS Realty Investors handles all aspects of the ground-up development for the healthcare operators it works with. On behalf of its healthcare partners, the company identifies the land for development, hires an architect and then manages all aspects of the construction process.  When complete, the building is turned over to the tenants who have a new location ready for their current and future needs.

“In my business, commitment is vitally important,” said Avi.  “I know through my strong relationship with Dennis Balletto, Bill Oakley and Bank of Nevada CEO John Guedry, that they don’t make a commitment they can’t keep,” he said. “I’ve been in this business a long time and it’s refreshing to know I have a bank that I can rely on.”
