Matthew Weiss - A Rising Star in Commercial Real Estate

MOONACHIE, NJ – November 29, 2010 - As evidenced by a year marked with impressive closed deals, Matthew Weiss is continuing a long tradition of hard work and success in his role as vice president at Moonachie-based Weiss Realty.

“Weiss Realty has a proven record of excellence within the commercial real estate industry.  We are especially proud of our diligent work ethic and we are one-hundred percent committed to every transaction,” commented Matthew’s father, Jaime Weiss, president and founder of Weiss Realty.  “Matthew has demonstrated a keen knowledge of the framework of a real estate transaction, and I am very proud of the success he has achieved.”

Over the course of the year, Matthew has brokered multiple significant transactions.  In Fairfield, NJ, Matthew arranged a new office lease transaction at 165 Passaic Avenue.  Matthew represented both the Law Office of Faloni & Associates and the landlord (BELUS, LLC) in the negotiations.  The law firm signed a six-year lease for 5,700 square feet of office space in the 100,000 square foot office building.

In Cresskill, Matthew arranged a new long-term ground lease transaction with CVS at 80 Piermont Road, where a new 12,900 square foot CVS Pharmacy drive-thru was constructed.  Matthew represented both First Hartford Corporation and the landlord in the negotiations.

In Toms River, Matthew represented the landlord (RAMP GROUP, LLC) in leasing 10,000 square feet of retail space to Dollar General in the 55,000 square foot shopping center at 1001 Fischer Boulevard. Timothy Keely of TEK Group represented the tenant, Dollar General.  This is the second transaction on which Matthew and Timothy collaborated.  Previously this year, Matthew leased Dollar General 15,000 square feet of retail space on Market Street in Saddle Brook.

In June of this year, Matthew was recognized for his excellence when the Fort Lee Chamber of Commerce awarded Weiss Realty & Development with the 2010 Greater Fort Lee Chamber of Commerce Beautification Award for the Starbucks drive-thru and Bank of America kiosk at 2115 Route 4 East, Fort Lee.

In regards to his success, Matthew Weiss commented, “I love every aspect of my job – the industry, the people I work with, and the excitement inherent in every closed deal.  My father, Jaime, who carries a stellar name within the industry, has been the consummate mentor.  I look forward to my continued success at Weiss Realty.”
