Partner / Broker
The finest compliment I can receive is an introduction to friends or colleagues from an appreciative client! Cliff Atnip joined the firm as partner in January 2003. Cliff specializes in Commercial and Office sales & leasing. He has been in the Real Estate business since June of 1991. Cliff started with Joe Adame & Assoc. Inc. working primarily in office sales and leasing. Cliff became a broker in 1995 and went on to be the top-producing agent with Joe Adame for most of his time there. In January 2003 Cliff joined Cobb-Lundquist Realtors Inc. and in May of that year the name was changed to Cobb, Lundquist & Atnip, Inc. with Cliff a full partner. As a Realtor, Cliff has sold over half a million square feet of office buildings in the Corpus Christi market. He has worked as leasing agent for six different office building in the Central Business District and is one of the most knowledgeable office broker in Corpus Christi. Cliff tracks the office occupancies and publishes an office market survey showing citywide office occupancies. He also writes the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) office market survey article for the annual BOMA Directory. Cliff is a member of the Corpus Christi Association of Realtors, Texas Association of Realtors, and National Association of Realtors and serves on the Governmental Affairs committee.
In 1994 Cliff was the runner-up for the Texas Association of Realtors Lone Star Trophy Award for his sale of a 100,000 square foot office building to buyers form Costa Rica. Some of Cliff’s current clients include buyers from Canada and Germany. Cliff grew up in Zimbabwe, Africa -- the son of missionaries. He graduated high school under the British school system in Zimbabwe, returning to Texas to attend Baylor University. While at Baylor, Cliff was an exchange student to Seinan Gaquin University in Fukuoka Japan for one year. He graduated Baylor in 1980 with a BBA in Finance. Cliff is currently working for his Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) designation. Before entering Real Estate, Cliff worked in Insurance sales for three years before starting his own business in property management. Cliff’s goal was to enter the home building market, but with the collapse of the banking industry in the late 1980’s he was asked to join Joe Adame in real estate and has never looked back. Cliff is very active in Second Baptist Church serving as Deacon and on the finance committee. Cliff is married to Char Atnip and they have two grown daughters, Paige and Delilah, and four grandchildren.
