Developer Bios

With more than 45 years of combined experience, R. Fred Obrecht and Susan Obrecht Riehl know Mid-Atlantic real estate. But more importantly, they know what you want from your property. Quite simply, deliver the highest possible value to you—because they know how satisfying the right property will be for you—for many years to come.

But, don’t stop there . . . they are always bringing new ideas to the table: innovations that create opportunity and maximize value in real estate development, management, construction and brokerage.

Susan Obrecht Riehl founded Obrecht-Riehl Properties in 1997. Today their portfolio has grown to several million square feet of residential, office, retail and warehouse space. Susan supervises the day-to-day management, marketing, consulting and property development. Whether the project is a housing development, shopping center, warehouse or office building, no job is too big or too small. You will enjoy personal, attentive service every step of the way.

R. Fred Obrecht founded Obrecht-Phoenix Contractors in 1993 and supervised it until 2014. During his oversight the firm grew rapidly, providing full service general contractor and construction management services to clients throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. Clients relied on their expertise to guide them through every phase of their project. Today, they’ve earned a well-deserved reputation for successful projects, completed on time and on budget, with millions of square feet constructed.

It’s no surprise that Susan and Fred make a great team. Their expertise literally runs in the family, with a history of real estate management dating back to 1865. They grew up under the tutelage of their father, P. Frederick Obrecht, Sr., and have been involved in every aspect of real estate since childhood.
