WHAT WE DO
We combine our extensive knowledge of Southern California, our acute understanding of the retail business, and state-of-the-art aerial imaging, mapping, and demographic reporting to develop a customized Market Strategy to best capture the retailer’s core customer base.
The implementation of a retailer’s Market Strategy requires market knowledge, perseverance, and creativity. During the site selection process we combine these disciplines with our extensive network of other real estate professionals to find the absolute best locations that fit our clients’ long-term strategies.
With over 60 years of combined experience in representing some of the nation’s most active and successful retailers, we provide a realistic perspective to deal negotiations. Starting with a detailed letter of intent, we work intimately with our clients in every stage until the transaction is completed and the store is open for business.
