October 30, 2018 [Philadelphia, PA] – Jon Kieserman joins Colliers as a retail leader with over 26 years in the retail business and 20 specializing in retail tenant and landlord representation. Retail is in his blood - prior to his career in real estate Jon was a tenant himself, leading a family-owned 16 store regional retail operation.
Jon has provided retailer representation and/or disposition services for the likes of Walmart, Sam’s Club, Lowe’s, AutoZone, Wendy’s, Joyce Leslie, Pizza Hut, Chrysler, PA Department of Transportation, Pep Boys, Circuit City, Flynn & O’Hara and others. With over 3.5 MSF leased or sold throughout his career and a roster of national tenants, Jon provides exceptional market knowledge and insight into retail in the Tri State region and beyond.
There is nothing Jon enjoys more than rolling up the sleeves and coming together as part of a team with a client to share creative off-market or out-of-the box solutions that succeed in today’s rapidly evolving retail landscape. His personal approach is what clients remember long after the transaction - a true partner that is accessible, proactive and results driven.
