Company Biography

Each day at Epsteen & Associates, we work passionately with the understanding that our success and our client’s success are one in the same. First and foremost we are strategists, working to meet the unique needs of your business. Our breadth of expertise begins with retail real estate leasing and sales, and extends into consultant services for developers, start ups, municipalities, joint venture groups, venture capital firms, and buyers seeking information prior to purchase. Our fruitful history with start-up retailers has given us the tools needed to help first-time retail developers find success.

Our approach to retail real estate is like no other, starting with an intensive training program for our associates. Each new team member at Epsteen & Associate pays their dues with “windshield time”, getting to know the streets and shadowing senior brokers for as long as two full years before they ever represent a client. “What makes us different from others is our ability to make selections, not just from demographic and trend analysis but from good old fashion drive time.”

Beyond our expert brokers, Epsteen & Associates’ technological services are some of the most comprehensive in retail real estate. Our proprietary database of all major shopping centers in Southern California is unrivaled including thousands of properties and counting. The information maintained includes specific photos of retailer street fronts, detailed maps of pedestrian streets, panoramic and aerial photography, Our GIS (Geographical Information System) capabilities are impressive as well, with strategic site selection, detailed market analysis, annually updated census-based demographic data, category-based thematic maps, customized retail aerial maps, tenant-specific competition maps, and site-specific ownership data and transaction details.
