Store closings and retailer bankruptcies have been dominating headlines in the past couple of years, but that doesn’t mean the industry stood stagnant. Indeed, the professionals who handle retail real estate transactions have had more than enough work to keep them busy. So much so that the number of agents nominated for our biennial Top Retail Brokers ranking reached a record level. Of the hundreds that submitted their 2016 deal totals, we selected the top 25 leasing and and 25 investment sales brokers to highlight on the following pages.
Together, the 50 agents and teams completed nearly 4,500 leasing and sales deals last year, totaling more than 81 million square feet of retail space and worth an aggregate of some $20 billion. Interestingly, a large component of those deals involved neighborhood retail and strip centers, as well as single-tenant net leased properties. The winning brokers are listed by their overall rank within their category, and their rank for individual fields are indicated within their profiles.
