THE PRIVILEGE OF BEING ABLE TO HAVE DREAMS, IDEAS AND GOALS COME TO FRUITION, IS THE CORE OF WHAT WE ARE ABLE TO EXPERIENCE BECAUSE OF THE FREEDOMS THAT ARE OURS IN AMERICA.

Loeb Properties
President

Bob Loeb is a fourth-generation Memphian and President of Loeb Properties. He is the visionary behind the revitalization of Overton Square, the thriving entertainment, dining and shopping district in Midtown Memphis. Giving this treasured landmark a new lease on life earned Bob 2014 Memphian of the Year by Memphis magazine.

After graduating from Southern Methodist University, Bob Loeb went into business with his brother, Lou. They originally opened a bar, called “London Transport,” which they sold after six months, turned a profit and opened another bar with the same name. The brothers operated that establishment and Loeb took real estate jobs during the day. He earned his M.B.A from SMU in 1985 and returned to Memphis to join the family business with his father and brother.

In a profile in Memphis Magazine, Loeb describes joining his father’s business, “A lot of our time was spent managing operations that weren’t performing very well. So, we sold those off to tenants and found ourselves in real estate management, then in investment and development.” This evolution from a retailer to a real estate investment development and management business has helped make Memphis a better place to live.

Loeb Properties, founded in 1887, is a commercial real estate investment, development, management, and brokerage company focusing on retail, multifamily, office, single-family and mixed-use properties. Its portfolio includes over 100 retail, office, and multi-tenant properties, along with multifamily, industrial, and single-family developments. Loeb Properties currently has 31 employees.

Bob chaired the Board of Trustees at Memphis University School and the $26.5 million “For Girls, For Life, For Generations” capital campaign at St. Mary’s Episcopal School. He is a member of Lambda Alpha International, Urban Land Institute and past board member at Youth Villages.
