Pennsylvania – April 15, 2020 – Lee & Associates, a national full-service commercial real estate brokerage firm, recently announced the promotion of Ed Skonecki to Principal of the Eastern Pennsylvania office.
“Ed has had an exceptional work ethic from the start of this tenure with our firm and the success of his clients’ business is a testament to the dedication of his efforts,” stated Joel Kreider, Broker of Record at Lee & Associates of Eastern Pennsylvania. “It has been a pleasure working alongside Ed and being a part of his positive energy.”
Ed has participated in over $200 million in transactions over the past three years for many local and national clients. Most notably thus far was the redevelopment of 485 DC in Shiremanstown, PA. Formerly a Quaker Oats manufacturing facility, the building is now home to warehouse and distribution operations of a national 3PL and major transportation parts manufacturer and distributor. “The vision Endurance Real Estate Group had for this strategic infill location and the progressive nature of turning a functionally obsolete building into a modernly designed efficient warehouse facility was not only exciting to be a part of, but fundamental to keeping the industrial sector of Central PA real estate thriving,” said Skonecki.
Ed focuses on owner and occupier representation, site selection and acquisition, as well as disposition of industrial real estate. He concentrates his efforts in the Central and Eastern Pennsylvania markets with a focus in Central and Northeastern Pennsylvania.
