Mr. Offit formed The Sierra Group, Inc. and Sierra Realty Advisors (now Sierra) in 2000 following a career at General Growth Properties where he was Senior Vice President of Leasing and Asset Management – overseeing 12,000,000 square feet of retail space. This platform, and the first hand knowledge of almost every major project through out the country, provides Mr. Offit with the vision and insight to take an asset such as a piece of land or existing under-performing retail center and transform it into a burgeoning, profitable focal point for its owners.
Mr. Offit’s talents for design layout and merchandising embrace the unique aspect of each project and help maximize the experience for all who visit it. Using this knowledge, he can carefully balance symbiotic retailers, restaurants, and entertainment venues and transform a quiet center into a busy and profitable one. One of Mr. Offit’s most valuable skills is the ability to quarterback a project from a vision through merchandising, planning, and opening.
Mr. Offit is a graduate of the Johns Hopkins University and The University of Baltimore School of Law. Mr. Offit is a licensed attorney in the State of Maryland and a licensed Real Estate Broker in both Illinois and Florida. Mr. Offit is the Chicago member of the Council of International Restaurant Brokers (CIRB).
