Thomas English ~ Founder/Owner
Thomas English began his real estate career as a broker with CB Richard Ellis. While there, English worked exclusively in retail, including tenant representation, land sales, shopping center leasing and multi-location disposition. With a growing passion for all aspects of the retail real estate business, English left the firm to begin looking for new opportunities to further develop his retail expertise.
Finding promising opportunity in the development sector, English and another broker partnered to create Maquina Realty Corporation, a real estate firm specializing in retail projects. Together, the duo completed $30 million in acquisition and development projects, creating name recognition and reputation in the retail development world.
With years of industry experience, from brokerage to development to acquisition under his belt, English made the decision to venture out on his own to create Thomas English Retail Real Estate. From its inception in 2004, the company has grown significantly, developing and acquiring over 60 properties with 1,000,000 SF valued in excess of $250,000,000.
The market is currently presenting select small development projects and Thomas English is active on those opportunities.
Mr English has 21 years of industry experience and is a member of several professional and industry groups, including the International Council of Shopping Centers, and Urban Land Institute.
When not working to expand his business, Tom stays very busy with his 3 children, Chloe, Claire and Cagan.
