The commercial real estate market is one of the largest in the United States coming in at USD 16 trillion. J.W. Mays, Inc. is real estate firm that owns, operates, and leases commercial properties to premium clients. They are currently holding properties in New York including Brooklyn, as well as Ohio. While this company is still under the radar, it has quietly returned about 50% to investors over the past 3 years and 28% of that coming last year. With that momentum, the company should delve deeper into the market and expand their holdings.
