Integrity. Knowledge. Process.

Home: Welcome


I deliver results because I place myself in my clients’ shoes.  Acting as a fiduciary -- advising and investing with clients' best interests at heart— is what I am trained to do.

And I was trained by the best.

My University of Virginia degree in Finance led me to New York City and Bankers Trust. My MBA from Dartmouth’s Tuck School prepped me for the commercial real estate industry at Jones Lang LaSalle, where I developed and executed value-maximizing strategies for corporate America.

Today I combine my finance, marketing, and investing skills with my real estate expertise—to offer my commercial real estate clients an institutional quality of advisory and brokerage services.

Ultimately, they benefit from a proven process not readily available to owners of non-institutional properties.

If you’re ready to hear more about why it works,

let’s take the next step.

Magnifying Glass

Real Estate Advisory

Identifying Potential

Before any strategy can be developed, an owner must understand the attributes, potential and risks of their property. As your advisor, we develop a 360-degree understanding of the property as it exists, its re-development potential and the economics of each feasible scenario. We investigate physical attributes, zoning entitlements and what uses the market demands. Armed with this knowledge, you can act with clarity and confidence. Let's get started.

The work that Kent and his team did on behalf of the corporate relocation of Alfa-Laval Thermal Division positioned our company for long-term growth and success. Their process worked and it continues to work for us!

Kirk Spitzer, President - Alfa Laval Thermal Division (US)

For five years I tried to sell my apartment building on the Upper East Side. Six brokers and four firms later, I met Kent Covington. His honest, direct approach left me with no doubt--Kent was working 100% on my behalf. And the results of the sale changed my life.

D. Walter, Manhattan Property Owner

Having known and worked with Kent for over 30 years, he has always under promised and over delivered.  His attention to detail is uncommon in its combination with his big picture approach.
