The origins of Stafford Properties began all the way back to the 60’s when Mr. Stafford developed several Piggly Wiggly grocery stores in South Georgia. From there he continued on with development and acquisitions with Waffle Houses, various other small restaurant concepts such as Omelet Shoppe, Stuckey’s, King & Queen, etc, Amaco and Phillip 66 gas stations, local department stores, a Ryder truck rental facility and even a rock quarry.
Upon the development and acquisitions of two office buildings and eight shopping centers by Stafford Development Company DeNean Stafford, Jr. felt the time was right to create an entity to manage all the properties and develop new projects. Stafford Properties, Inc. was incorporated on September 18, 1992.
In the early 2000’s Stafford continued its growth with build to suit opportunities with Staples and Advance Auto and over 500,000 sq. ft. of retail development in the South Carolina Low Country in cooperation with Dave Oliver.
Stafford Properties is now a full-service real estate company, specializing in the development, operation and management of neighborhood centers throughout the southeastern United States. Their services include development, leasing, third party management and tenant representation.
