Pierson Commercial has expanded its team of retail brokers with the hiring of an industry veteran and specialist along New Jersey’s Hudson waterfront.
The Marlboro-based firm said Robert Mackowski joins its roster with experience in both leasing and investment sales, having represented landlords and tenants throughout central and northern New Jersey. He previously spent 10 years with a competitive national brokerage firm.
“Robert has made his mark as one of New Jersey’s premier Gold Coast retail brokers with a transaction record that includes arranging over 130,000 square feet of leases within Hoboken and Jersey City alone,” said Jason Pierson, president of Pierson Commercial. “We are extremely pleased to welcome Robert to the Pierson Commercial team where his skills and expertise will raise the bar for advancing our clients’ growth strategies throughout New Jersey.”
Mackowski, who holds a bachelor’s in business economics from Rutgers University, launched his commercial real estate career as a research associate and economist at The Real Estate Board of New York, according to a news release. He holds a New Jersey real estate salesperson license and is a member of the International Council of Shopping Centers.
“Known for its ‘client-first’ culture — and a track record of doing just that — Pierson Commercial is a unique firm that encourages an entrepreneurial mindset, offers access to large-corporation-caliber resources and operates in a highly efficient, streamlined manner,” Mackowski said. “I’ve already hit the ground running and look forward to serving our diverse client roster during this pivotal time.”
Pierson Commercial, which was founded in 2011, added that Mackowski has earned several industry distinctions, including recognition as a 2019 Rising Star in Commercial Real Estate by Real Estate Weekly.
