Sol M. Margolias (Retired Founder)
Sol began his career in real estate in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1970. After emigrating to Atlanta in 1984, he founded Margolias Realty Group, a conglomerate of several dozen partnerships and corporations. The firm has been successful in identifying, acquiring and maximizing the value of office parks, warehouses, retail strip centers and apartment complexes. Sol focuses on the big picture and utilizes his background as a CPA to screen potential acquisitions from a financial standpoint. He screens as many as 70 properties for each one actually acquired. Since 1984, the group has acquired over $450 million in real estate assets.
Sol and his wife Hazel live in Dunwoody and have three grown sons: Gary, Darren and Brett. Even in his later years, Sol remains active in leisure and in sport. When he is not spending time with his family or tending to the constant flow of real estate deals, you’ll likely find him cycling with and outpacing people half his age.
