A new office building for Emmert GMAC Real Estate will be coming soon on W. National Ave. in Brazil.
The building will be a strip center located on the lot at 921 W. National Ave., where Bauer's Stu Auto Exchange had been.
The goal is to provide better visibility to the town for Emmert and make the business more convenient for customers.
Emmert GMAC plans to consolidate their property management, real estate and title companies into a single location.
The business began opened in 1978 in a one-room office, then moved to its current location at 1100 W. National Ave.
"We operated low key mainly with property management for several years," Joyce Emmert, broker and owner of Emmert GMAC, said.
The new building will house the real estate brokerage services, home warranties, property management services, title and closing services plus additional office space to rent.
"This will enable us to transform our Real Estate brokerage business into a single source Home Ownership Services business," Emmert said.
In GMAC's Real Estate culture, emphasis is placed on always doing what's right ethically, morally and professionally to better become an important part of Brazil's community.
"I have always operated my business with the same philosophy," Emmert said.
Construction will begin on Monday and the new business plans to open in early 2007.
