Career Education Corporation
Following the development of an aggressive and complex turnaround strategy for the business, we faced major hurdles with our real estate portfolio. What we needed was an innovative, results oriented partner. We found that with Peter and the A&G Realty Partners team. They truly delivered the goods for us in terms of tens of millions of dollars in savings with impressive ROIs. Beyond being impressive problem solvers and true partners in the process, they were a pleasure to work with. Thanks for your outstanding work and I look forward to working with you again in the future.
‹ Reid E. Simpson, Career Education Corporation
We retained A&G to assist our real estate team in the fall of 2017. We were in the process of restructuring our debt and had goals to achieve occupancy savings in a short amount of time. A&G was able to quickly integrate into our current team and work collaboratively and seamlessly with us to deliver the results we needed.
Their credibility within the lender community helped us achieve alignment on strategy quickly, and their approach with our Landlord partners was always focused on realizing the right outcomes for all. A&G’s “client first” culture was the added value that helped to protect our landlord relationships while reaching our savings goals.
‹ Emily A. Watkins, Head of Real Estate & Construction.
Over the years we have worked with A&G to restructure our retail portfolio, renegotiate leases and conduct lease and warehouse sales. It is clear their strong relationships and credibility with landlords were paramount in achieving our desired occupancy costs savings.
Jon Graub and the A&G team have acted as true partners, handling things professionally and efficiently throughout the relationship.

I haven’t often had the opportunity to work with a team that delivers beyond the aspirations of their sales pitch. You worked with us as an extension of our team to clearly dene strategy, report the results, follow-up and successfully complete the project in a timely fashion. The process you described was exactly what happened, and the results were even greater than we expected. Thanks for a job well done.
‹ Chris D. Newman, EVP, CFO and Treasurer, Orchard Supply Hardware
We are very grateful for the relationship that we have had with Peter and Emilio and their team. Most importantly they have the knowledge and the trust of all sides in these difficult situations and as a result provide a very constructive role in finding workable solutions. Opening stores is certainly a lot more enjoyable than closing stores, but sometimes reductions are necessary and they have been a great resource to work with.
