Peter Montesanto


Senior Vice President – Retail Leasing

About

Professional Summary

As the head of Colliers Boston’s Retail Team, I collaborate with my team on projects and pursuits in both the retail tenant and landlord arenas. On the tenant advisory side, I work closely with retailers and restauranteurs in finding geographic locations and physical spaces where their businesses can flourish. I have learned that a comprehensive kick-off session in which I can learn about and better understand the client’s brand is critical to a successful outcome. With retail landlords, I enjoy identifying tenants who will elevate the performance of their building, or in the case of multi-tenanted retail centers, tenants who will diversify and/or complement an existing tenant roster.

I began my commercial real estate career on the retail side over 30 years ago and have never looked back. I enjoy the constant evolution of the industry and am always eager to see what new concepts will come along and which ones will stand the test of time. My tenure in the business has allowed me to acquire a tremendous amount of market knowledge as well as negotiation experience. I am reliable and aggressive in making deals on my client’s behalf and strive to advise them on the most favorable terms.

Despite my 30+ years of retail experience, I am constantly diving deeper into the markets I serve and staying abreast of new retail trends and opportunities. Outside of the office, I enjoy golf, skiing, and yoga. I also spend time supporting the ASPCA, an organization that provides healthy living situations for animals that have been abused.
