About Us


Peter & Sally Allen were canoeing down the Huron River one sunny day in 1968 and somehow Peter knew he would have a future along the river one day. The owner of NOMA grew up doing property management with Peter and know manages all of his portfolio along the river, as well as others in Ann Arbor. But the focus has always been on this unique corridor into Ann Arbor.


Where We Are Today

NOMA manages over $12MM worth of real estate in Ann Arbor, has brokered office, retail, multifamily, and vacant land deals across Michigan, and manages >$1MM construction projects. NOMA is focused primarily on the sustainable redevelopment of the Lower North Main Corridor (LoNoMa) but works across the state on complex urban, transit-oriented, placemaking projects.



NOMA Real Estate Services provides comprehensive, up-valuing management, brokerage, and pre-development services to our clients along North Main and beyond.


NOMA is the trusted, go-to resource for everything related to commercial real estate development and management along North Main and beyond.

Client Testimony

Douglas Allen has managed all of my buildings for well over a decade. He and his NOMA team are exceptional with all aspects of the real estate management cycle - general maintenance; long-term capital improvement planning and execution; tenant buildout design, contracting, construction, and oversight; marketing and leasing; and always up to date receivables and payables, as well as online cash flow reporting and multi-year projections.

Perhaps most importantly, the NOMA team places primary importance on building solid and trusting relationships with tenants. Our tenants have always gone out of their way to express their appreciation of Doug’s friendly, respectful, and professional style. Not to mention his culinary skills always on display at our annual tenant’s parties.

Over the years I have come to depend on Doug’s advice, industry contacts, and caring approach to those he works with and serves. I have recommended him to others with real estate management needs and included his services as an integral part of my own planning for new building acquisitions and management.
