Property Leasing

Our Landlord representation services focus on effective marketing strategies designed to meet clients’ goals and objectives.  We achieve this by creating marketing plans developed and designed specifically for each property to maximize asset performance and value.  This information allows for evaluation of transactions, tenant mix, deal structuring and overall portfolio strategy.

Our marketing program includes location analysis, brochures, aerials, maps, demographics and social media. We handle transactions from tenant prospecting, proposals, lease, construction coordination and move-in.  Staying involved with local brokerage firms, regional and national tenants, as well as local businesses, is imperative to the success of our clients.

Leslie Collins and the team at Cobblestone Retail have been the exclusive Tenant Representatives for PETCO Animal Supplies Stores since 2003. Over that time span, Leslie has helped the company grow and, more importantly, reposition itself to a leadership position in the entire Georgia retail market. For PETCO, Cobblestone’s vast market knowledge, diligence, and integrity has become a model for tenant representation within our network nationwide.

When we partnered with Leslie in 2008, her market knowledge and innate ability to dissect our company’s expansion needs in a hurry made the marriage between Cobblestone and hhgregg streamlined from Day One. The high-level work ethic employed and hard-nosed negotiation skills, coupled with the “small-shop” feel and spirited approach to business, never goes unnoticed. I believe we are better off and make better real estate decisions due to Leslie’s input and support.

We switched to Cobblestone Retail two years ago and have been very pleased with both the service and results. Michele Del Monaco has been instrumental in us adding several additional stores to our portfolio, in the trade areas we want to be in. Michele’s background and relationships have resulted in us being exposed to some great real estate BEFORE it goes on the market.

Working with Michele through her leadership with ICSC, I realized her commitment for accomplishing tasks under any circumstances. With Michele’s past experience employed directly for owners, she has a record of enhancing value with underperforming properties, working in new development and re-development. Having Cobblestone Retail as part of my team to work on our portfolio was imperative. I value the leadership, tenant contacts, industry relationships and ability to provide a range of commercial real estate services.

I’ve worked with Leslie for 10 years. Her experience in the industry and knowledge of her markets have been an asset to me and the evolving needs of my company’s restaurant brands. She takes a strategic approach through market planning, researching availability, networking, obtaining comps and negotiating deals. Her relationships span the industry which continue to help us from both development and asset management perspectives. Her ethics and integrity are beyond reproach and I would recommend her to anyone in need of a great real estate broker.
