Sterling Commercial Real Estate derives its name from the man pictured below, Major Sterling “Stranger” Norton, USMC. A tragic aircraft accident took his life while he had much left to give, but the name of this company serves as a small memorial to his life and legacy.
Sterling was the best we have to offer as a nation, giving all that was required of him and more. He was reliable, faithful, even-keeled and unmatched in his profession. Though commercial real estate was surely too slow-paced for his liking, the intensity of thought and action Sterling applied to his chosen line of work — the defense of this nation — is a touchstone for us all. He was a caring, compassionate and respected servant-leader. Sterling was the sort of person we all should aim to be more like, both personally and professionally.
