Anabasis Realty, LLC

Anabasis is the ancient story of the Greek mercenary army’s journey and escape from Persia. Known as ‘The March Upcountry’ or ‘The March of the Ten Thousand,’ Commander Xenophon played an instrumental role in encouraging the ten thousand mercenaries to march north across snow-filled mountain passes towards the Black Sea to the comparative security of Greek shoreline cities. The word “Anabasis” means the “journey up”, and we have adopted it as our company vision and mission to seek out and realize competitive value on our real estate journey.
