Landlord Feature: Wald & Fisher Inc.

Wald & Fisher, Inc., is a multi-generational, family-owned and operated real estate development company located in Beachwood, Ohio. The company began serving the real estate needs of Cleveland-area residential neighborhoods until post-war opportunities led to the acquisition and development of apartment complexes, office buildings, and shopping centers. Today, Wald & Fisher’s portfolio of self-developed properties exceeds 1,000,000 square feet and includes some of the most well-known shopping centers in Greater Cleveland. The Greens of Strongsville (Target, Heinen’s, and T.J.Maxx), The Greens of Lyndhurst (Applebee’s, Fifth Third Bank and Sam Ash), and River Square (Whole Foods) are among their most notable assets. Since 2000, they have been growing outside of Northeast Ohio and currently have properties in Dayton, OH; Augusta, GA; Winston-Salem, NC; and Raleigh-Durham, NC. 
 
Currently, Wald and Fisher, Inc., is developing Pearl Plaza with three new drive-thru anchored, multi-tenant retail buildings and one NEW anchor opportunity. Preliminary site plan approval has been received from the City for the property which is located at 6850 Pearl Road in Middleburg Heights, Ohio. 
For over 20 years, Zack Sogoloff, SVP at Goodman Real Estate Services Group LLC, has worked with Wald & Fisher, Inc., on portions of their portfolio. Today, Zack and Seth Marks, Senior Associate at Goodman Real Estate Services Group LLC, serve as the leasing team for Wald & Fisher’s impressive real estate portfolio. 
 
“Zack and his team have been great partners to Wald & Fisher over the past 20 years and have played an important role in the continued success of our portfolio.
While their market knowledge is second to none, it is the time they take to achieve a detailed understanding of each property that allows for a streamlined deal making / tenant retention process.
We appreciate their dedication to the long-term health of our portfolio, and they are consistently willing to “make the right decision" by viewing them through the property owner’s perspective.”
 
-Marc Glick, Director of Leasing at Wald & Fisher, Inc.
