Judge Realty agent Casey Anderson Krinksy was instrumental in the recent Sorry Charlies’s Oyster Bar Congress Street building and business expansion. Using her extensive sales experience and negotiation skills, Casey was able to bring the buyer and seller together to complete a successful transaction that included the acquisition of the adjoining building.
Sorry Charlie’s Oyster Bar opened downtown on Ellis Square in 2015 to much success. Although there was Sorry Charlie’s previously in the same space, the 2015 iteration opened after a complete teardown and rebuild of the building’s interior under the guidance of new ownership. Located on the first floor of the historic Gibbons Range building, in the heart of Historic Downtown Savannah, the bar and seafood restaurant rapidly gained favor with visitors and local Savannahians alike.
With the acquisition of the building next door in 2018, Sorry Charlie’s temporarily closed its doors in mid-2019 to complete the renovation of Gibbons Range building and also to connect and renovate this new space. The restaurant’s owners took this opportunity to update the main floor while building out the second floor into a Tiki bar, renovating a third-floor banquet hall, and creating a new rooftop bar and seating area. This second phase has been a labor of love, with much time being taken and attention is given to preserving the historic integrity of the building.
The renovations to the Gibbons Range building and the adjacent space has allowed for the expansion of the basement and main floor kitchen areas, as well as the creation of stairwells, utility and elevator shafts for public and staff access. One of the most significant additions to the main floor of Sorry Charlie’s is the creation of a new raw bar, with seating available. Other “Phase 2” updates include a tongue-in-groove ceiling, updated light fixtures, a new sound system, high-speed internet, and a new building-wide HVAC system. The entrance will also be moving just a bit farther east along Congress Street, so patrons will enter directly into the raw bar area.

Judge Realty Founder and CEO Lori Judge, pictured here with the Big Bon Bodega Family, shared an important role in this recently opened Bodega. When Bodega owner Kay Heritage was looking for a space to open her bricks and mortar Big Bon Pizza spin off bodega location she contacted Lori for assistance. After exploring many possible commercial locations, the opportunity to lease the newly renovated building at 2011 Bull Street became available.
Judge Realty Property Management Division, oversees leasing of the residential and commercial spaces of this architectural gem. Previously a gas station, the building retains much of its former mid-century character. The owner added a residential component making this an exemplary model of how a building can be repurposed for a present use yet remain sensitive to the neighborhood character and history.
Judge Realty has a business mission statement that places clients’ needs above all else. We posed the following questions to Big Bon Bodega for feedback on the leasing process and to follow-up on how their experience with this office measured up to our service goals.
1. What made you choose Judge Realty? “It has always been ‘human relationship‘ when we choose whom we do business with. Lori Judge has always been such kind and thoughtful person, professionally and personally. She truly cared about our team and was able to share the vision for our company and correctly pairing us with the right building owner. We are so grateful for her.”
2. How would you describe the process from contract to close. How did we do? “Judge Realty team has been nothing but professional and caring from the initial meeting to final closing.”
3. Advice for other small business interested in leasing properties? “Choose Judge Realty! Choose to work with people whom you can trust from your gut; whom you can be life long friends! We chose Judge Realty and so glad we did!”
Thanks for the love and positive feedback Big Bon Bodega! Congratulations on the grand opening of your new venture. So glad that we could share the Big Bon Family business journey. Judge Realty is looking forward to enjoying your wood-fired bagels and other items in this new location.
