Founded in 2015 by Jared Marcus and John Livanos, LM Real Estate Partners is a fully integrated commercial real estate operating company specializing in the acquisition and operation of industrial real estate.

LM is responsible for all aspects of capital raising, acquisition, leasing, and property management of warehouse-distribution focused industrial properties. LM has acquired 20 assets since inception and currently manages 12 properties totaling 2.5 million square feet.

LM’s expertise comes from many years of institutional experience in real estate debt and equity investment including ground-up development, whole loan purchases and origination, purchases of subordinate and distressed debt, as well as the management of structured products secured by commercial real estate loans.

LM has built and maintains a network of brokers and lenders with institutional and local experience. It has strong relationships throughout local and regional commercial real estate communities. This ‘on-the-ground’ philosophy in its target markets gives LM early insight into properties as they become available for sale, often producing proprietary deal flow. The results are opportunities that fit its investment model and allow LM to be selective in how and where it deploys capital.

LM’s success is closely linked to its direct and transparent investment processes when dealing with investors, partners, and lenders alike.

Meet the Principals

Vertically Integrated Platform

LM Real Estate Partners is a fully integrated investment and operating platform that includes leasing, property management, and asset management functions that create active value through the full life cycle of each investment. A local presence and a ‘boots on the ground’ investment and management approach has led to dynamic acquisition and leasing opportunities in target markets.

Demonstrated Investment Track Record

An early mover in the middle market industrial space, LM has generated above-market returns for its investors with a disciplined focus on identifying and acquiring off-market assets with superior regional connectivity and asymmetric risk profiles. LM’s clear investment mandate of capital preservation combined with careful, risk-weighted active management provides certainty for investors seeking to obtain quality industrial exposure.


Core Industrial Investment Principles

LM was founded to capitalize on the migration of essential supply chains back to the US and consumer demand shifts towards online and same day delivery. These shifts have created an acute demand for space that is driving strong national absorption trends and upward pressure on rents.
