The FACE of COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE
Jeremiah Baron & Co.
Commercial Real Estate
Jeremiah Baron is a hard-working family man with a doctorate degree in the school of hard knocks. The licensed real- estate broker is President and CEO of Jeremiah Baron & Co. Commercial Real Estate LLC, which recently developed Baron Shoppes on Federal Highway. The 30,000-square foot retail destination is anchored by such national brands as Eyeglass World, Metro Diner and Moe’s Southwest Grill. “With more than $10 million invested and more than 100 new jobs created, it’s been a super success to our company and the community,” he says. His firm’s guiding principles of commitment, dedication and respect–and his self-motivated work ethic–result in deals that are in the best interest of his clients. “We treat all clients the same,” he says. “Whether they are leasing a 1,000-squarefoot office space or buying a $20 million shopping center, you never know who you are dealing with, and you never judge a book by its cover.” A former model who attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, he now prefers to be in the trenches. “That’s where the real deals are,” he says. “You cannot buy the knowledge in this business; it must be learned by having your boots on the ground.”
