HISTORY

Abraham Soclof purchased his first commercial property in 1941—a small retail strip on Woodland Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio. Little did he know that this was the start of a multigenerational business. While acquiring other properties, Abe often enlisted his young sons to help in the day-to-day operations and property management. By the time they were 18, the boys were well honed in maintenance and the art of sales and leasing.

Two of his sons, Ivan and Alan, continued to operate real estate after Abe passed away in 1955. Sparked by their father’s passion for real estate, the brothers created the Euclid May Management Company, an unincorporated entity, in 1955. In the early 1960s, Ivan and Alan began developing real estate as they acquired existing multifamily properties. The brothers were highly regarded and well respected as innovative, hardworking and honest. By 1963, they incorporated as EMMCO Properties. During the seventies, EMMCO added a full service real estate brokerage, with Ivan as the broker.

By the mid-1980s, EMMCO had assembled a portfolio of residential, multifamily, commercial, retail, and office real estate. Many of the partnerships created by Ivan and Alan are still active and creating new opportunities for their partners to this day. Ivan’s and Alan’s children followed in their fathers footsteps. The 3rd generation swept, painted, mowed and managed their way through summer vacations. These summers provided the basis for educational and career paths into real estate.

When Alan passed away in 1984, EMMCO focused on leasing its affiliated properties  and property management. By maintaining desirable properties and building strong tenant relations, EMMCO consistently provides positive returns for the people it represents.

Andrew Soclof has provided construction and development services to EMMCO and its clients since 1992. Soon after, Jeffrey Soclof joined EMMCO in 1997 as a leasing agent. After providing consistent and profitable leasing and acquisition services, Jeff became the managing broker in 2007. The transition of ownership to EMMCO Corporation began in 2007. Jeffrey, as broker and President continues to grow the full service brokerage. As Vice President, Andrew provides property management and construction services.

In January 2015, EMMCO Corp. became affiliated with the Coldwell Banker Commercial organization and became known as Coldwell Banker Commercial Emmco Realty Group.

Building on their family legacy, Jeffrey and Andrew deliver reliable, professional commercial real estate services that are innovative, hardworking and honest. EMMCO partners and tenants enjoy strong, professional relationships that provide consistent, tangible value. EMMCO Corporation delivers the highest standards of professionalism, local market expertise, creativity and integrity in commercial real estate with a caring touch.
