Thank You Brokers!

As a California based principal, we appreciate your ability to bring off-market opportunities and consistent deal flow.  We value your expertise of submarkets, leasing dynamics, and potential tenants.  Typically, we’ll partner on buy-side and then relist – offering FULL commission.

How to Partner


We ALWAYS use brokers to buy our shopping centers.  Together we identify, underwrite and submit offers on under-performing buildings.

We physically upgrade the property, plus co-market with 3D tours, video walkthroughs, loopnet premium, costar, social ads, and direct mail.

2) Schedule Call


As soon as we hit pro-forma occupancy we’ll list with the broker who brought us the deal.  The faster we turn the deal, the better the ROI. 

3) Submit BOV
