“LandQwest Commercial has a major presence in Florida’s retail market, representing both landlords and tenants,” said John Mounce, Principal of LandQwest Commercial, who helped negotiate the agreement with Simon. He added, “Our goal is to find good, strong local and regional tenants that will be a great addition to the Simon portfolio.”
“In the last few years, during this down economy, we have had great success getting deals done and I attribute that to listening to the concerns of both parties and staying involved through the negotiation until the deal is signed,“ said Tom Strauss, Senior Director of Retail Services at LandQwest Commercial. Strauss, who will work on the projects with Mounce and Matt Yaniglos, Managing Director of Retail Services, believes the first step to leasing the available Simon’s units will be to inform local and regional clients that these enclosed regional and lifestyle centers are available at affordable rates.
