Sam joined The Lerner Company as an Associate in 2022. His primary focus is on landlord representation in leasing and investment sales, with an emphasis on retail assets.
Prior to joining the Lerner team, Sam had been with Ogden & Company, Inc. in Milwaukee, WI for five years. At Ogden he negotiated numerous deals with his main focus being on office and retail leasing and sales. For example, Sam was tasked with leasing the Northern Lights Building on Water Street in late 2018, at the time the building had an occupancy rate of less than 70%. While he had the building listed, Sam brought the building to 89% occupancy. Similarly, he took the Ironwood Office Park listing at nearly 50% occupancy and brought it to 97% within a year.
Before entering the workforce, Sam was a student at Marquette University and graduated with two degrees, a Bachelor of Business Administration in both Business Economics and Commercial Real Estate. He was also an active member of the Real Estate Club at Marquette and is still an active member of their Real Estate Alumni program. Sam is eager to use his skills to maximize the potential of any property he works with for both sellers and lessors.
