Only the most tenacious, nimble companies can say they’ve been around for 100 years. Holladay Properties is looking toward the future and planning to be one of those companies.
In 1952, Wallace Holladay began his business in the Washington, D.C. area and in 1999, Holladay Properties branched off under the leadership of John Phair. Since then, Holladay Properties has added offices throughout Indiana, Illinois, Tennessee, and beyond.
