That wasn't the only shift that occurred. After sixteen years my own firm, Ryan Commercial, morphed into Lee & Associates Chesapeake Region, along with a few brokers from the
Columbia office of KLNB. The new firm is headed
up by Allan Riorda (KLNB) and began operations with Matt Ryan (Ryan), Kate
Jordan (KLNB), Tom Whelan (Ryan), Bill Harrison (Ryan), Marley Welsh (Cushman
Wakefield) and yours truly. Like one big happy local commercial real estate family, the new Lee
office is also in Columbia Gateway at 6990
Columbia Gateway Drive.
Unfortunately this means I have to move. Our current offices are on
in the e've been there for about five years. I like where we are. I can be in
Wegmans in ten minutes. Sigh. Columbia Gateway is a retail desert compared to Columbia Business Center. W Dobbin Road.
Actually, we are in the process of moving. The physical move happens Friday. Right now all of us are going through old files and loading up the recycling bins. As much as I dislike this process it can be very cathartic.
It's kind of like spring cleaning.
