Retail-Overview

For more than two decades we’ve represented retailers ranging from single shops to global chains, helping them both expand and downsize as the market changed. Our retail brokers use specialized skills every day to assist retail business clients in selecting prime locations. We are experienced in the factors that drive retail market decisions: properties, demographics, traffic, buying patterns, tenant mix, competition analysis, taxes, valuations and business climates. Our retail brokers focus on quickly providing the best options available to clients looking for retail space, so those clients make informed decisions to best suit their needs.

We provide a variety of services to retailers, including finding land suitable for retail development, seeking tenants for retail locations or conducting a nationwide search for the perfect retail location. In addition to the work we do for clients seeking space, we also use our extensive market research and client database to help our clients who are selling or leasing retail space. Many of the companies we work with are seeking to relocate or expand, and we know how to match those companies with the right retail property. We work with many different types of clients throughout Wisconsin and across the United States to sell, buy and lease premium retail sites.

Successful transactions are supported by robust investment and asset management strategies. We will guide you in your investment decisions and help you address and mitigate the financial effects of any uncertainties or risks.
