Sabre Commercial's client focus enables the Austin, Texas-based company to secure repeat projects and continue to grow.

By Jim Harris

For Sabre Commercial's founding partners, establishing a company at the onset of the Great Recession in 2008 reinforced the value of establishing close relationships with clients. During the company's early years, it relied on a handful of clients in the Austin, Texas, commercial construction market.

“The genesis of the company was really our desire to go out on our own and provide a high level of service and relationship-driven business practices more than anything else,” COO Todd Reimers says.  Reimers and partners John Cyrier and Matt Lutz co-founded the company after working for other real estate and construction-related companies. “Initially, we focused on tenant improvements and interior build-outs, because that's what we did the most of in the past. In 2008, there were very few ground-up opportunities in Austin because of the uncertainty in the economy and the inability to secure funding from lenders.”
