The Real Estate Office handles all real estate transactions involving the purchase, sale and leasing of property. As UAB grows, purchases are needed to accommodate new buildings and parking. Gifts given to the University often come in the form of property. If UAB cannot use the property for its academic and research mission, these properties are placed on the market for sale.
