At Cape Fear Commercial, we understand the dynamic and competitive nature of the retail industry. We draw on experience and leverage market knowledge to not only align retailers and landlords with the right opportunities, but also ensure that our clients are prepared to make well-informed leasing and sales decisions. Licensed in multiple states, our team has extensive knowledge of ever-changing traffic patterns, road improvements, demographic trends and new project developments. Additionally, we utilize market studies, consumer behavior research, gap analyses and industry trends to determine the best locations and markets for our clients’ businesses.


From national brands, such a Taco Bell, McDonald’s and Walgreens, requiring site selection assistance in multiple markets to local boutiques opening their first stores, Cape Fear Commercial represents retail tenants of all sizes. Our team is well-versed in the complexities of retail transactions and has experience negotiating inherently complex business terms, including: percentage rents, go-dark clauses, co-tenancy requirements, tenant improvements and guarantee burnoffs. Through our involvement with industry associations, such as ICSC, and the working relationships we have with developers, our firm also serves as a valuable resource for new and emerging retail opportunities and trends within the regional market.

We pride ourselves on building trusted advisory relationships with clients. Along with acquisition and disposition services, our experienced team of professionals provides owners with property management and development solutions.
