Starting with our CEO, and extending through executive staff, management, and corporate support, CF Real Estate Services is a continuous chain of integrated talent. We grow a culture of communication which seamlessly unites multi-tiered efforts to create a cohesive and uniquely successful product.

Combining decades of unparalleled success in the multifamily real estate industry, our people focus intently on the communities they serve, while maintaining a clear and dynamic vision for progress and growth. Innovation, teamwork, service, and partnership are the benchmarks of our proven success.

Solid Beginnings. Bright Futures.

Since 2013, when co-founders Byron Cocke and Brett Finkelstein merged their company, Cocke Finkelstein, Inc., with Atlanta-based Lane Company, CF Real Estate Services has emerged as a distinct and authentic presence in the industry. Our brilliant and energetic team members are affiliates with the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC), the National Apartment Association (NAA), and the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM).

We are excited to partner with forward thinking people to build highly visible, unique, and robust rental communities throughout the Southwest, Southeast, and Midwest. Send a message today to learn more about CF Real Estate Services.
