FARMINGTON HILLS – 11/14/2016 – Landmark Commercial Real Estate Services, Inc. (“Landmark”) is proud to announce that Matt Swantko, Kevin Baker and Daniel Kukes have acquired equal interests in Landmark’s ownership alongside the company founders, Bruce Simon and Michael Lippitt. As its strongest producers, the new partners are integral to Landmark’s continued growth strategy and future vision.
Landmark continues to set new commission volume records annually. Co-founder Bruce Simon stated, “The 27 year old Landmark brand is very meaningful in the state of Michigan and beyond. By finalizing this deal, we have solidified our company, setting us up for long term success to benefit our entire team and our valued clientele.”
Co-founder Michael Lippitt stated, “Kevin and Dan have created a unique platform for investment sales. Their combination of broad market knowledge, Landmark’s exclusive retailer relationships and their extensive tenant representation experience put them in a very advantageous position in the marketplace, which is evidenced by the results they have delivered for their clients. As new owners of Landmark, Kevin and Dan have positioned Landmark Investment Sales to accelerate at a remarkable growth rate and increasing market share.” Investment sales are a natural outcropping of Landmark’s traditional core business of national retail tenant representation.
Currently, Landmark exclusively represents over 70 national companies in Michigan, plotting their growth strategies and securing their locations. 27 year veteran Matthew Swantko is a leading figure in Landmark’s continued emphasis and dominance on the tenant rep side of the business. Matt personally represents more national restaurant chains than any other Michigan broker while also handling many other high profile national retail and “box” chain accounts. He said of the new arrangement, “Having been in the business for over a quarter century, I have been exposed to all kinds of people. I can honestly say that Landmark is comprised of the best group of retail and investment sales professionals in the market. I am proud and honored to take a larger role in the company and in Landmark achieving even greater success moving forward.”
