We have extensive experience in executing complex industrial warehouse and land transactions nationwide for manufacturing, cold storage, food and beverage, retail, e-commerce, energy, and 3PL users. Our network spans the complete spectrum of industry providers including transportation, logistics, construction, environmental, economic development, as well as debt and equity capital. Our depth of experience and broad network allows us to deliver results with a high success rate in this market segment.


We represent tenants and users of industrial real estate across a range of transactions: acquisitions, disposals, leasing, build to suits, sale-leasebacks, sourcing debt and equity capital.

Warehouse and Office

We help companies build profitable supply chain networks that maximize margins. In recent years, the industrial real estate market has been tight across all major logistics hubs, particularly within the warehouse and distribution center segments. Despite these competitive dynamics, we strive to develop creative solutions that add value and meet the long-term goals of our clients. Desired building size, layout, transportation, and labor costs are significant factors in the site selection process. Thereafter, we work closely to guide our clients through the complexities of warehouse and office lease negotiations. Tenants that work with us can anticipate a successful solution despite limited options in a very competitive market.

Land Acquisitions and Build to Suits

We have unique experience in land acquisitions and build to suit transactions on behalf of several mid-large size companies, both publicly traded and private. Many of these situations have required the coordination of several corporate, economic, and governmental stakeholders. Drawing on this expertise is invaluable to our clients, particularly in a tight market like we see today. We have the depth of experience and flexibility to change course and create solutions that meet the individual needs of our clients. This sets us apart from many other real estate advisors and brokers.


For companies looking to maximize value in mission critical real estate, we bring competitive solutions in the healthy sale-leaseback investment market. We seek to support our clients as they efficiently monetize on-balance sheet assets and improve their overall financial metrics for owners and investors, while still maintaining control of key operating assets. We have successfully completed several transactions in both prime and tertiary markets, allowing companies to successfully liquidate their real estate without moving into a new footprint.

Debt and Equity

Our network of capital sources allows our clients to create the optimal capital stack with providers who offer with both advantageous terms and strategic partnerships.


We work alongside sophisticated investors typically in middle-market companies to maximize value of real estate holdings.

We work closely with private equity firms and their portfolio companies to unlock value in real estate assets and maximize returns to shareholders. This can come in a variety of forms, whether it be an acquisition, disposal, new lease, sale-leaseback, or other real estate solution. We are sensitive to relationships and the confidential nature of private company information. As discreet and valued advisors, we become an extension of the team to complete transactions that best suit the client’s needs.

We typically find that each company situation is different and may have multiple ways to enhance value. Please contact us to discuss how we might be of assistance. Learn more…

PA & NJ offer access to the largest port on the east coast (Elizabeth, NJ) and a way to service 60% of the US Population and Eastern Canada in a 12 hour drive. Eastern PA and NJ are key markets because shippers enjoy a choice of rail services at the Port of New York / New Jersey along with an extensive market reach covering the Eastern half of the United States, Eastern Canada and beyond.
