CAMP HILL, PA (February 15, 2021) – Landmark Commercial Realty today announced that the organization has added some top local producers in a market shakeup that follows the recent acquisition takeover by new principal owner, Jason Grace, CCIM, SIOR in his new capacity as Chief Executive Officer and Managing Principal. Grace has been SVP at the firm for over 20 years and was the top deal producer for the last decade since joining the firm after graduating with a master’s degree in corporate real estate from Carey Business School at Johns Hopkins University.
Under Grace’s executive leadership the fresh faces will include industry veterans Michael Curran, serving as President and Executive Managing Director of the new organization and Justin Shoemaker as Executive Vice President. Curran, who started his career at Landmark, most recently served as First Vice President at global corporate real estate services provider CBRE specializing in office properties for nearly 15 years while Shoemaker was EVP at JC Bar Properties and has led their retail brokerage division with over 20 years of commercial brokerage experience that included time at NAI Commercial Industrial Realty, Inc.
In addition, Grace has immediately moved to internally promote Barb Murdocca as Chief Operating Officer who was previously with the firm in a Director of Operations role while Chuck Heller will also become Executive Vice President. Heller has been with the firm for over 20 years and serves primarily the investment and multi-family sector.
“On each marketing agency and tenant rep assignment, our clients will be sure to have the best team of agents with significant deal experience in that sector which will result in first class service,” added Grace. “It’s not exactly a groundbreaking strategy but in a fee-based business model is a fundamental change to organizational principles and requires the right quality of agent for total buy in.”
Industry veterans and top market producers Tom Posavec, SIOR and SVP, Roy Brenner, VP, Drew Bobincheck, VP, Andy Kohr & Bo Mangam will continue serving in their roles while servicing their long list of existing client relationships while Dave Remmel, P.E. SIOR will become an Associate Broker following the transition. Posavec has been with the firm since its inception in 1988 and was instrumental in establishing the firm’s current status as a market leader. Grace plans to build on that foundation as he works with his newly expanded team to immediately push to increase market share, recruit agent talent and expand the client resources platform at the new company. Some of these services will eventually include advisory & consulting, asset strategy & repositioning, portfolio analysis, property cost segregation for tax management, equity syndication & sourcing as well as property management.
This core veteran team will be supported by what Grace describes as maybe the most important element to growing the operation over the next few decades, the talented team of young junior brokers that he’s cultivating which currently includes Sean Fitzsimmons, Nick Sallack, Dan Dutcavich and recently hired Andrew Ford. This group will play an integral marketing and transactional support role for the new producer teams Grace has assembled which will allow the new Landmark organization to provide a sector specialty team approach to serving its clients better than the competition whether it’s office, retail, multi-family, land, investment, flex or industrial. Fitzsimmons has quickly risen to the challenge and is experiencing phenomenal year over year production growth while Sallack has over a decade of experience leading a brokerage team at Avison Young in Northern VA/DC Metro market and has shown a keen skill set in creative marketing solutions. Dutcavich and Ford will be invaluable assets in their operational support of some firm’s largest producers.
“I’m extremely excited to be working with such an experienced, energetic and talented team,” Grace stated. “The cross collaboration between industries among our agents and the sector specialty team approach will better serve our clients and transform the way commercial real estate is done in Central PA. Our leadership structure will be unparalleled given its deal experience, transactional resume and interest in creating a player-coach atmosphere that promotes success for young talented agents looking to break into the commercial real estate business or find new opportunities for veteran agents to restart their careers.”
