Jon Smith joined RE/MAX Commercial Brokers in 2016. He is primarily focused on acquisition and disposition of commercial property as investment vehicles, however he also has a deep background in retail tenant and landlord representations and multi-family acquisitions and frequently provides client services in those areas. Additionally, he also advises clients on buy/hold decisions across multiple asset classes, consults on retail redevelopment opportunities, and advises parking lot business operations.
Previously, Jon was a commercial property owner in the New Orleans and Baton Rouge markets and made the move into commercial real estate sales and brokerage as a full-time career in early 2010. He has worked as the Director of Commercial Property for HRI Properties, one of the nation’s leading large scale urban historical property redevelopment companies and more recently, has served as the Executive Director of the French Market Corporation, the City of New Orleans owned property management company, which is responsible for all operations of commercial property covering six key city blocks in the French Quarter. With an annual revenue of $12MM, this position allowed Jon to oversee in excess of 100,000 s/f of gross leasable area, along with managing a multi-million dollar parking operation, and one of the nation’s most historic and important public markets.
Having successfully worked with both national retailers as well as start-up operations, institutional clients and investors just starting on their first property, single 1031 exchange flips and other commercial real estate investments alike, Jon is well versed in the processes needed to bring your real estate transaction to successful conclusion. He is eager to bring his passion for commercial transactions combined with the knowledge of the real estate fabric of the Gulf South and River Region to help with your real estate needs.
Jon is a member of the CCIM Institute and is near completion of his designation certification. He is also a member of the Urban Land Institute, the International Council of Shopping Centers, and the National Parking Association.
