Unlike a brokerage firm, LJK has in depth corporate experience in all facets of the process, including national expansion strategy formulation, trade area analysis, site selection, financial modeling, transaction negotiations, and property entitlement and development.
LJK has an extensive track record with the major REIT's, shopping center developers, and institutional Landlords throughout the country, as well as deep national market knowledge that is further supported by a brokerage network that consists of top tier local brokers in each and every major metropolitan U.S. market.

Brad plays a key role in every analytical phase of the site evaluation process. He conducts trade area analysis, comparative demographic studies, competition surveys, and site specific evaluations for each and every site that LJK targets for its clients.
