We are excited to welcome Jordan Banks to the First Commercial Realty & Development team! Banks, FCRD’s newest Leasing and Sales Associate, joined the company in July 2020. He specializes in retail leasing, tenant representation and investment sales, and has experience serving clients throughout the state of Michigan and across the country.
Prior to joining FCRD, Banks worked as Senior Leasing Coordinator for Rappaport Management Company, a leading retail management, development and leasing company based in the Washington, DC metro region. In this capacity, Banks focused on landlord representation, directly servicing a portfolio of more than 1 million square feet of Class A retail property and coordinating portfolio-wide leasing processes for the company’s entire 9.5 million square feet of mixed-use developments, strip centers and anchored neighborhood retail centers. His award-winning service to both institutional and high net worth clients precipitated more than 1 million square feet of growth to Rappaport’s management and leasing portfolio during his tenure.
Banks returned to Michigan in 2019 and joined Dominion Real Estate Advisors (DRA) as Assistant Vice President, Brokerage and Advisory Services, where he gained expertise in investment sales and acquisitions and successfully represented retail tenants and landlords in the sale and leasing of more than 125,000 SF of real estate property.
