Wolf Commercial Real Estate has hired industry veteran Corey Hassman to help expand its retail and industrial services platform in the southern New Jersey and Philadelphia markets.
In a news release, the firm said Hassman joins its team as a senior adviser and will provide tenant and landlord representation and sales and leasing services for the asset classes. He’ll do so under senior leaders Eric Flocco and Ryan Barikian, while drawing on his own experience in the region and deep knowledge of real estate, property management and business development.
“We’re thrilled to expand our retail and industrial sectors within the firm and adding Corey to our team is going to provide a huge boost for both our current operations and future plans,” said Flocco, an executive vice president of retail with WCRE. “His drive, community commitment and experience, coupled with the relationships he’s cultivated, make him an ideal fit for WCRE. We couldn’t be happier to welcome him aboard.”
Hassman most recently was a licensed real estate professional at Berkshire Hathaway, where he catered to clients in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, the news release said. He achieved recognition as a top 10 percent agent in the tristate area before turning 27, having also held the role of manager of new business, where he effectively managed and expanded a diverse portfolio of properties, leading to increased revenue.
“I couldn’t agree more with Eric’s sentiments. Bringing Corey on board to help cultivate and expand the industrial and retail platforms at WCRE will further elevate our teams’ capabilities,” said Barikian, the firm’s vice president of industrial. “We are eager to support his development in the commercial real estate industry, especially in these two sectors. Corey’s experience in real estate and his business development experience will be a tremendous asset to our team.”
It’s the latest hire for WCRE as the Marlton-based firm continues its expansion in the region. The 10-year-old company has added several seasoned brokers of late to help increase its activity in the South Jersey and greater Philadelphia region, Southeast Pennsylvania, Northeast Pennsylvania, the Lehigh Valley and the New York metro.
Notably, Hassman is a member the Ronald McDonald House of Southern New Jersey, a nonprofit that the WCRE Foundation has partnered with, the firm said, highlighting his commitment to the community and aligning with WCRE’s core values and mission.
“I’m extremely excited to be joining WCRE as I am transitioning from residential to commercial real estate,” Hassman said. “The team and environment at WCRE is one of the main reasons I decided to take the next step in becoming a part of this firm.”
