Simmons Management Group to Become SIGMA Real Estate Services
Change in Management and Strategic Focus Follows Acquisition of Simmons by SIGMA; New Owner Plans Major Capital Infusion
College Park, Maryland , September 30, 2016 (Newswire.com) - At a meeting last night, attended by customers, vendors and employees, Sigma Real Estate Services (SIGMA) formally announced a change in name from its predecessor company, Simmons Management Group (SMG).
SMG was established in 1990 and became a leader in the property management field operating in several markets in the Metro DC, Baltimore and adjacent suburban areas. Under the guidance of founder Larry Simmons, SMG grew to manage over 60 residential properties including condominiums, cooperatives and residential associations. SMG was acquired by SIGMA Real Estate Services in December of 2015.
Constantin Anagnostopoulos, president of SIGMA, said, “We are very pleased with the progress we’ve made to date in building on the base that Larry created over the past 26 years. We have implemented a new strategic direction for the firm that involves significant integration of technology, both hardware and software, in all aspects of the property management process, and outfitting our employees to work with the utmost efficiency and effectiveness."
