“I truly enjoy helping my clients achieve their goals; opening successful businesses across a wide variety of industries is energizing and fuels my drive and work ethic.

As Co-Founder of the commercial real estate firm Neighborhood Retail Group (NRG), Bethany Kazaba became CEO and managing principal of NRG in 2017. Kazaba and her team focus solely on servicing the unique demands of the retail sector from development and management to marketing and branding. Opening more than 60 new business locations annually for and on behalf of their clients, NRG’s portfolio includes fitness concepts, bakeries, restaurants and bars, health and beauty shops, pet care centers, swim schools, burger franchises and more. Kazaba prides herself on offering a better way of business for commercial retail, going the extra mile for every client at every step of their journey.

Kazaba is recognized for her leadership and commitment within her industry by the region’s most prestigious brands. Washington Business Journal named her one of Washington’s top leaders in their annual 40 under 40 awards. She’s been named one of nine top innovators in the DC Metro Area by DC Modern Luxury magazine and has graced the cover of Washington Life magazine’s Young and the Guest List issue—making the list for the past three years.

Recipient of the Women In Retail Real Estate (WIRRE) Founder’s Award—demonstrating selfless dedication to the ongoing success of the organization—Kazaba was unanimously voted as the organization’s president one year later (2017-2018). She now joins an elite group of past WIRRE presidents and is still actively involved in the organization, giving her a platform to guide and inspire women leaders within the real estate industry.
