Our Mission


The mission of SVN | Asset Advisory Group formerly known as SVN | Finest City Commercial is to list and sell or lease commercial, investment, industrial and multi family residential properties in a manner that best represents the interests of our clients, our customers, our associates and the owners of the company in a lawful, ethical and profitable manner.

Our own mission statement led us to adopt SVN and their core values together with their marketing programs as we recognized that through their support we could even better serve our clients and our market. SVN reflects this approach in their Core Covenants which every SVN advisor agrees to uphold in his or her business dealings.

Why SVN | Asset Advisory Group?

Faster closes. Higher values. These are the real measures of success. Combined with our unique strategies and guaranteed broker-to-broker cooperation, you can begin to understand our passion for this revolution that is creating new industry benchmarks. Today, while other national firms still subscribe to the traditional closed methods of brokering, SVN is the only national firm with a policy and practice of cooperating on every listing with over 60,000 brokers and investors across the country.


In a break from tradition, SVN uses high technology to facilitate exciting and dynamic property marketing programs for our clients. By linking brokers through the Internet, and the development of our national database, we have been able to further expand our model of broker cooperation and reach new markets faster. In addition to our traditional marketing brochures, SVN also offers interactive electronic brochures, electronic postcards and exclusive property websites.


Only industry leaders with proven experience are accepted to the SVN team. Agents must pass rigorous ethics testing and background checks in addition to their extensive experience. Those joining the firm are proven successful professionals with years of extensive knowledge. Sperry Van Ness brings its clients unprecedented levels of expertise, with agents that foster the highest level of integrity.


SVN is the only firm whose clients benefit from the well-earned reputation of a consistent, proactive approach by marketing listings to outside brokers as well as investors as a matter of policy. Sponsoring over 100 marketing forums each year, SVN promotes all listings to its external broker network, inviting other brokerage houses to attend these forums to learn about SVN deals as well as present their own.

  • I have known Jim Taylor at SVN | Asset Advisory Group for many years and know him to be very knowledgeable and a well-connected broker in San Diego. I recently purchased an apartment building that did not fall within my usual purchase parameters. Jim saw something in the deal that few others could have and as a result, the building (which cost roughly four times per unit over my typical purchase price per unit) has become a favorite Trilogy on Fifth."

  • Tony Yousif and Chuck Wise with SVN | Asset Advisory Group are highly recommended for their professionalism, contributions, and efforts in the sale or properties in Riverside County, California. Mr. Yousif and Mr. Wise marketed the properties for our client with signage posted at each site, website listings, marketing brochures, and follow ups with each interested party. In a depressed commercial real estate market Mr. Yousif and Mr. Wise co-brokered the sales and closings of two properties in 2010 in Riverside County, California with two individual investors. I highly recommend Tony Yousif and Chuck Wise for their marketing efforts, professionalism with interested prospective purchasers, and market knowledge."
