Kevin Buth

Principal 407.370.3211

Kevin has over 20 years of extensive leasing, management, and development experience exclusively in the shopping center industry. During his career he has been instrumental in executing over 700 leases including approximately 2 million Square Feet. Kevin’s enormous pride in establishing and maintaining long term relationships with retailers has unconditionally benefitted the leasing of the shopping center portfolios he has managed.

Most recently, he was the Vice President of Leasing of the North Florida Region for, Equity One Realty & Management, Inc., a subsidiary of Equity One, Inc. Kevin oversaw the leasing activity of 40 properties encompassing nearly 4 million square feet throughout the greater Orlando, Tampa and Jacksonville markets.

Kevin began in the shopping center business when he joined CentreCorp in 1989, as a Leasing Representative. During this time he was also instrumental in the acquisition process of neighbored grocery anchored centers ranging from 90 to 150K SF. By 1995, 12 retail grocery and specialty retail shopping centers were acquired consisting of approximately 2M SF throughout Florida which included properties in the Greater West Palm Beach, Orlando and Tampa regions. In 1997 he became the Director of Development and leasing, as the focus turned towards development, while continuing to maintain the leasing responsibilities of the portfolio.

In the year 2000 Equity One acquired CenterCorp and Kevin joined the Equity One team in Orlando as their Regional Leasing Director. For the next 3 years he continued to oversee the leasing of 12 centers throughout Central Florida and was successful in increasing occupancy, completing multiple out-parcel ground lease transactions, the redevelopment of existing centers and the completion of the Phase 2 development of existing centers.

In 2003, he was promoted to, Executive Vice President and Asset Manager, and relocated to Houston, Texas, to manage the Equity One Texas portfolio of 35 centers. During the next 4 years Kevin’s objective was to rework the portfolio to include the lease up of several vacant anchor spaces and the expansion of properties in Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio. Leases were executed with tenants such as HEB Grocery Stores, JP Morgan Chase, Panda Express, 24 Hour Fitness, Starbucks, Dollar Tree, and Big Lots. This aggressive leasing positioned the portfolio to be sold, which was successful in late 2006.

After the Texas Portfolio was sold, Kevin relocated back to Orlando, Florida with Equity One to become the VP of Leasing for North Florida, where he was responsible for the leasing of 40 Shopping Centers containing approximately 4M SF. Under his direction the leasing team for North Florida was able to achieve an excellent track record of increasing and maintaining occupancy thru successful renewals, re-tenanting several anchor tenant vacancies and back filling small shop spaces. Providing ongoing direction, the region was successful completing deals with many national tenants such as Office Depot, Staples, Publix, Ross Dress for Less, Aldi’s Grocery Stores, JP Morgan Chase, Dollar Tree, Big Lots, and several other smaller national and regional retailers such as UPS, Sprint, AT&T, Firehouse Subs, Anytime Fitness, Lifestyle Family Fitness, H & R Block, Starbucks, Chic-Fil-A, AT&T, Chili’s, Radio Shack, Bank United, Blockbuster Video, Taco Bell, Aarons Rents, Sprint, Save-a-Lot, Tropical Smoothie.
