CCIM Strategic Analysis Model

ABOUT VAN GANDHI

As a proven commercial real estate executive my focus is assisting clients in meeting and exceeding their strategic commercial real estate goals. Over fifteen years of retail experience helps me create “out of the box” solutions to solve problems and overcome obstacles. Utilizing this owner-operator point of view, I develop and execute strategies that enhance long term stability and profitability of retail properties. My passion for income producing properties fuels my success and motivates me to help clients achieve or maintain financial independence. Managing risk through principled due diligence rather than gimmicky sales programs provide sound investments strategies for our clients to consider.

As an exceptional relationship builder who understands networking is more than an introduction and the exchange of business cards, I easily establish and maintain effective dialogues with C level executives and other professionals including attorneys, architects, brokers, interior designers, contractors, property managers, bankers, and asset managers. As a real estate professional, my job is to keep the transaction moving forward to closing, while perfectly aligning with the client’s goals. My commercial real estate experience covers acquisitions, dispositions, retail leasing and investment sales.  I look forward to working with you on your specific commercial real estate portfolio.

While originally from Andover, Massachusetts, I attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte earning a Degree in Business Administration with a Major in Finance and Economics and completing an MBA at Pfeiffer University.  While I took some time off from continuing education to grow our Hallmark retail chain to over 50 locations along the east coast; education is a life long endeavor and regularly pursue commercial real estate knowledge through graduate level coursework.  One must always be striving for success through a combination of experience and education.  Thus I am currently seeking a certification in commercial real estate investments.

We have also opened a new KW Commercial Division with Keller Williams Elite Realty to serve the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill markets . Our commercial team has more than 50 years of commercial experience and our residential office has over 100 of the most talented Realtors in our market.  I have no doubt, regardless of experience, Investors and Consumers Tenant will find we have a solid track record and are capable at serving any of your real estate needs.

While we have a broad range of CRE services my passion for the acquisition and disposition of income producing properties is always evident and my experience with leasing is equally evident when working with Landlord or Tenant Representation transactions.  We love our work and clients which range from the smallest business owner beginning a new venture to Corporate or Public sector clients.

When not working my family time is spent with equal vigor and passion for taking my three year old son Kaiden on train rides, to parks and the beach. Despite being diagnosed with Autism on the Sensory Processing Disorder spectrum, he will have a life full of adventure and accomplishments beyond measure. To ensure this result, we have taken an active role in Autism awareness and work diligently to develop opportunities for those with Autism.
