Retail Leasing

Passion for retail. Highly personalized service. A keen understanding of our clients’ needs.



Besen Retail was formed in 2005 on these very principles, and has a strong reputation for proven success representing landlords, property managers and retailers throughout New York. As leasing specialists, we provide the right representation, the right strategy and the right results.

We provide expertise in all facets of leasing space to find creative solutions to the retail challenges of both tenants and landlords. At our core is a proven knowledge of local and regional markets that is continually updated by studying demographics, vacancy rates, trends and comparables, all of which are used to determine current market value.

Since our inception, we have successfully represented real estate owners and asset managers of all sizes, from large portfolios and investment funds to smaller family-owned portfolios and investment groups, as well as first-time owners. Our success as a traditional landlord rep firm quickly resulted in a burgeoning tenant rep business.
