"Mark recently guided me through my first commercial warehouse building purchase. When I first met with him, I was impressed with his professionalism, transparency and in-depth of knowledge of the purchasing process. Mark had consistently been updating me with the current state of the market, recent closings, as well as the potential opportunities in the areas I had expressed interest. My first impressions were reaffirmed by his work-ethic and dedication to his profession.
Because of our line of work, we needed a specific type of warehouse, that would serve the function and utility of our business. Mark was able to clearly identify the opportunities in the area and set up tours for the most functional properties, not wasting our time with the over-priced properties, or properties least-functional. Mark was able to find a short-sale opportunity in the area I wanted. He was able to negotiate a great price, which ended up being one of the best $/SF in the history of the area.
I would highly recommend Mark to anyone in the commercial real estate market, especially first-time buyers."
President, Omega Moving & Storage
"I am writing to give Mark Lewkowitz my recommendation for commercial real estate transactions. As an out of area owner, I was hoping to sell my property for the highest value, in a seamless and timely manner. Mark demonstrated all the attributes I was looking for in a broker; he was diligent, responsive and professional. He clearly takes pride in completing a good job. I highly recommend Mark and would use him for any future real estate transactions."

After graduating from San Diego State University with a degree in Cultural Anthropology, I worked in the photography field for a few years (still an avid photographer) before deciding to join the Commercial Real Estate industry. I specialize in the industrial market (5,000 sqft. and greater) in the South Bay (National City, Chula Vista, Otay Mesa) submarkets. Backed by a team who has extensive experience in all areas south of the I-8 (Mark Lewkowitz and Chris Holder,) I'm prepared to assist with any commercial real estate needs in the Central San Diego down to Otay Mesa/San Ysidro submarkets.
