RIPCO Real Estate (RIPCO) today announced that it has signed a lease for its first Connecticut office – and fifth in the Tri-State Region. Located at 2 Greenwich Office Park, RIPCO’s Connecticut outpost will allow the firm to significantly grow its brokerage operations in Connecticut and Westchester County, as well as better service its robust landlord and tenant client rosters in the region.
RIPCO has been tremendously active in the region throughout the past 28 years, representing national retailers like Best Buy, Target, and Dollar Tree, regional players such as Stew Leonard’s, and upstart fitness concepts like Club Pilates, Orangetheory Fitness and StretchLab. Additionally, the firm has longstanding relationships with owners such as Cedar Realty Trust, Ashkenazy Acquisitions Corp., and Kite Realty.
“The Greenwich location allows us to fortify our presence in the region, especially in Fairfield and Westchester counties where we have been most active for decades and have a successful track record of working closely with top retailers and owners,” said Todd Cooper, Co-founder of RIPCO Real Estate. “Having a physical presence in Connecticut has been a longstanding goal for the firm. This location, coupled with the breadth of our team’s experience here, particularly Jeff and Lisa’s, will allow us to build on the momentum we’ve already established.”
“We pride ourselves on a highly collaborative culture, so this new office will not only provide a launching pad for RIPCO’s Connecticut and Westchester operations, but also create additional synergies between our sister offices,” said Mark Kaplan, Principal and Chief Operating Officer at RIPCO. “As a firm, we’re excited to plant our flag in Greenwich and very much look forward to serving the communities of upstate New York, the Connecticut Panhandle and greater Connecticut.”
