Sean and Ron are stellar brokers with a strong pulse on the South Bay/Peninsula market. They are well connected with all major brokers in the area and their Bay Area roots show through clearly with their depth of knowledge of the market. They are fun to work with and thorough in their work as well. Look no further when looking for trusted tenant reps in the Bay!

Frederick J. Vitt, CRX, CSM

President, DPI Retail

I have had the good fortune to work collaboratively with James for close to a decade. There is no more strategic, professional or thoughtful partner in the business. I truly value his insight, advice and direction, whether negotiating on behalf of our properties, or on behalf of Tenants. His transparency and conduct is above reproach. James is truly a valued partner for us.

Jeff Kreshek

West Region President, Federal Realty

I have worked with James for over 15 years, he is a true Professional, he is responsible and pays attention to details. I highly recommend James and we look forward to working with James in the future.

Doug Shaffer

Senior Vice President, Regency Centers

As a retail real estate executive, with a career spanning three decades, I have leased over 300 commercial properties across the country, and I have worked with many great retail real estate agents in the retail, office and industrial disciplines. But, despite the many great people that I have worked with during my career, there are just a handful of real estate professionals that really stand out in my mind as being the best of the best – the ones you confidently put your trust into with your most important and high-profile projects. When the time came to build upon our portfolio and expand into the Bay Area, it was an easy decision to reach out to James Chung of the Econic company. With a desire to match the successes of a prior expansion project in the Bay Area, which James led for me during a past-life, I again turned to James, confident that he would find the right properties and help us achieve the appropriate terms to meet our stringent requirements, and as-always, he came through again. We are currently enjoying our first successful grand opening as part of the Bay Area expansion project, due to James’ efforts. I look forward to continuing our successes in the Bay Area, with James representing our company in many more successful projects to come in the near future.

Sincere gratitude to Mike Conroy and his team for their assistance in navigating the selection process for BFT Saratoga.

Franchise Owner, Body Fit Training

I’ve had the great pleasure of working with James in different capacities stretching over nearly 20 years. Starting as a broker in the same office, we learned the ropes together and I quickly grew to trust him as a real estate professional and colleague. Since those early days, James has represented KIMCO on various high profile projects throughout the Bay Area. He consistently provides top quality market expertise, is always thoughtful in his guidance, is a creative deal maker and puts the client and their needs first. No one is harder on a broker than someone who used to be one, and James has never disappointed!

Carmen Decker

Regional President, Kimco Realty

I’ve had the pleasure of working with James for approximately 17 years. James currently lists two of our company’s assets located in San Jose. If we had more assets in his territory there is no doubt that we would hire him to work on those too. James is known throughout the industry, by both Landlords and tenants alike, for his in depth market knowledge as well as his professionalism. He is very conscientious and puts his clients interests first. His work ethic and integrity set him apart and put him at the top of our list of brokers we choose to work with. We feel fortunate to have James as part of our team.

Managing Director, Merlone Geier Partners

Kyle was the key player in bringing one of Regency’s more challenging assets to 100% leased. In less than a year, Kyle sourced and completed six deals with attractive lease terms – the most productive
results I have had from a listing broker in my 20 years at Regency Centers.  Kyle’s skills and personality make him a strong addition to any leasing team. He has market knowledge, a pulse on local and regional businesses, asks all the right questions, is a self-starter, has a “cut to the chase” negotiation style, and he is a genuine individual.

Jennifer Hess

Senior Leasing Agent, Regency Centers

In all my years in real estate I have rarely encountered a Commercial Real Estate Broker that is as respectful, mindful and worthy of my personal admiration and confidence as Ms. Nicole Key.

I’ve worked very closely with Nicole over the last few years as our CRE Broker for our family owned Normandy Village Shopping Center in Stockton, CA.  She is highly knowledgeable and aggressive in our leasing strategies and dealings. Nicole was able to secure a 20,000 sq. ft. premises for us in Stockton, CA with highly credible medical Tenant with very favorable terms. Because of this and many other reasons, I have come to respect and admire her professionalism and diligence in representing our family owned neighborhood center.

Out of all the CRE Brokers, I have known these many decades, Nicole has been one of the best CRE Broker’s I have ever directly worked with to represent my family’s ownership and interests. Therefore, I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a CRE Broker who is dependable, reliable, trustworthy, professional and above all else possess an exceptional macro and micro knowledge of CRE.
