Bryan helped my husband and me find an apartment rental in NW DC. He was great to work with -- super professional, responsive, and knowledgable. We had been searching on our own for weeks, and it was truly a breath of fresh air and a relief to have someone step in and be so helpful. He took us to see 3 apartments in one afternoon, and we ended up settling on one he showed us. He helped us through the application process and continued to follow up with us to make sure everything was sorted out. It was a pleasure to work with Bryan, and we will definitely reach out to him again when we are ready to buy.

Bryan became involved in retail tenant construction in the early 1990's when he started running blue prints for a company that focused on retail tenant construction in shopping malls. During the same period he worked for a commercial photography studio in Cleveland, Ohio.
His career became much more focused on real estate construction in 1997 when he joined Prime Retail, LP as the Regional Tenant Coordinator. At Prime Retail, a real estate investment company engaged in the ownership, leasing, marketing and operation of commercial real estate, Bryan managed expansions, renovations, and a new development for over 3.3 million square feet of retail space. He also oversaw the landlord construction for tenant-related scope and was the primary corporate contact for contractors, architects, and engineers. Bryan was very effective at reviewing tenants’ design and construction documents for criteria compliance with his key focus on expediting openings.
He later served as a Senior Tenant Coordinator overseeing the design, construction, and development of the Waterford Lakes Town Center, the Bowie Town Center, and The Shops at Northeast Mall, among others. Bryan’s passion for real estate, his superb interpersonal skills and driven attitude to succeed helped him establish strong relationships with local authorities and municipalities for permitting, and were key for his success in the challenging role of maintaining the tenant coordination for thirty community centers and thirteen shopping malls. Bryan’s versatile skills and initiative also led him to perform construction management duties such as value engineering and proactive scheduling, and become knowledgeable in the local building codes and policies.
In the early 2000s Bryan worked as the Senior Leasing Representative for Simon Property Group, Inc. It was here where Bryan honed his knowledge of sales and leasing and made the most of relationship building, negotiating, and creating thinking and gathered valuable experience through the market’s dramatic fluctuations. He successfully leased a portfolio of eight regional shopping malls and developed long-term relationships, which helped him build efficient and productive deals and propelled him to the position of a National Account Representative with over 400,000 square feet in annual leasing production.
In 2007 Bryan joined Lauth Property Group, Inc. as Senior Manager for Retail Leasing, where he was responsible for leasing and land sales for power centers and lifestyle projects on a national platform. He managed a team of Junior Leasing Associates and harvested landlord and tenant broker relations to ensure all potential deals were vetted.
Most recently, he spent several years developing the local brand, Urban Igloo. It is during this time where he has been able to truly get to know the D.C., Maryland, and Virginia areas in great detail and build countless diverse relationships in multiple working fields. These extensive connections allow him to work progressively with people when buying, selling, renting, managing, financial help, and more.
