About Us

Fred Schnider Investment Group LLC is a real estate investment and development firm specializing in urban and suburban mixed-use, industrial, life science, covered land and residential properties. Founded in 1940, the family-owned and operated company is comprised of institutional quality executives capable of executing a broad range of development and investment strategies across nearly every real estate sector.

Our reputation has been built over generations by standing behind everything we do and collaborating with other sponsorship groups that are among the most highly respected in the industry. We believe in building relationships that last and investing the time and energy to do both the little and big things that show how committed we are, and how much we care.

We have deep roots in the Washington, DC real estate market and have recently broadened our holdings nationally implementing the disciplines we have followed in the Washington D.C. market for decades. We’ve spearheaded the development of thousands of multifamily and custom residential properties and millions of square feet of mixed-use properties in the last twenty years.

For more than 75 years, three generations of Schniders have successively led the company through periods of tremendous change. Our resilience, commitment to family, friends and partners—as well as the enduring support of their community—have always been the foundation of our success. Many of the company team members have been with Fred Schnider for several decades.
