A retail broker at Sabre Real Estate Group has earned a promotion to principal in the firm’s New Jersey office.
In a news release Tuesday, Sabre announced that it has promoted Justin Korinis from senior vice president. The 36-year-old has been with the firm since 2016 and is based in its Hasbrouck Heights office, with retail experience that includes tenant and landlord representation and property acquisition and disposition.
“Justin is a very well rounded, likable and hardworking person,” said Jayson Siano, managing principal of Sabre. “Since joining Sabre, he has quickly grown along with our overall New Jersey business. His knowledge, integrity, morals and style are in concert with the Sabre culture.”
Korinis joined Sabre after about 10 years at Savills Studley, where he began as an industrial and office broker, according to a news release. Before joining Studley, he was a senior mortgage banker with Ameriquest Mortgage.
The Wyckoff resident is currently part of the retail leasing and consulting team at Bell Works, the 2 million-square-foot, mixed-use complex at the site of the former Bell Labs building in Holmdel. The project by Somerset Development has attracted new retail and food concepts including a beer garden, chef-driven restaurants and a so-called Fit Lab made up of boutique fitness concepts.
Korinis also represents restaurant groups and experiential-based retail concepts such as Dos Toros Taqueria, Honeygrow, Uncle Julio’s and Anthony’s Coal-Fired Pizza, the news release said. Meantime, he handles tenant requirements for Philadelphia-based Urban Axes, an ax-throwing bar concept, and national brands like Skechers in their efforts to realign their real estate strategy.
“Justin’s presence fills the room and makes it an easy decision to place him in a leadership role,” said James Aug, a principal of Sabre.
Korinis holds a bachelor’s in philosophy from Connecticut College. He is active with the International Council of Shopping Centers and on the planning board for the local chapter’s NextGen group.
