Crye-Leike Realtors is setting up a new location in the Starwood area.


The firm is moving into its two-building, 20,000-square-foot retail center at 12647 Old Hickory Blvd. The agency will occupy about 6,000 square feet, and lease the remaining space.


The Brentwood-based real estate firm, which has primarily dealt in the residential market, closed four offices and opened one last year, as the sub-prime mortgage crisis and general economic turmoil hit the residential markets.


The company has a sales office in the area, located in the southeastern part of Davidson County, until the late 1990s.


“We anticipate that once the housing market begins to pick-up again, the residential and retail projects proposed for the former Starwood location will get back on track,” CEO Harold Crye says in a press release. “Regional planners are projecting a population boom in the area and addressing it with road widening projects to handle the anticipated growth. We’re excited to be a part of the community and look forward to helping the area develop.”


Tim Mills, who had worked in one of the recently closed offices, will be the managing broker at the new location.
