Hi, I’m John Orr, CCIM. I have over 25 years of experience in Commercial Real Estate. I have done or seen most everything from multiple perspectives – Landlord and Tenant, Buyer and Seller, Lender and Borrower, Developer, Manager and Contractor. Of all these roles, the most rewarding is that of Retail Strategist. I am the Vice President of Retail at Colliers International in Charleston SC. This role is so exciting to me because of the people. There is a great energy, international perspectives on local issues and a wealth of knowledge to draw from. In this capacity I manage the third party retail throughout the Coastal Region of South Carolina. My primary focus is Landlord (Owner / Seller) Services including Leasing, Sales, Property Management Services and Asset Strategies for individual properties, as well as Complete Portfolios. My other major responsibility is that of Tenant Representation (User / Buyer) Advocate for a select group of unique Retailers and Restaurants. If you have any questions about Commercial Real Estate please give me a call or drop me a note. I am always happy to help in any way I can. Visit my blog John Orr Commercial Real Estate and follow me on Twitter @JohnOrrCCIM.
