About Novus

Our History

Novus Companies, an outgrowth of the need for real estate management in the Brown & Sons Foodliner chain of IGA grocery stores, can be traced back to P.N. Browne Properties. P.N. Browne Properties had managed and later converted several of these properties into retail and office centers; in 1988 Novus Development, currently Novus Companies, was established to undertake larger projects. To that end, we have assembled a talented staff of dedicated professionals who offer years of experience and expertise in the areas of:

  • Real Estate
  • Site Selection
  • Land Assemblage
  • Project Management
  • Fiscal Projection
  • Customer Service
  • Building Maintenance

Our ability to accomplish the entire development process under one roof enables us to evaluate opportunities and move quickly in an environment where timing is often of critical importance.

  • Land Acquisition
  • Building Layout
  • Construction
  • Lease Up
  • Management
