Mountain Lakes, N.J., Commercial Owner/Operator in Active Growth Mode
MOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J., Jan. 8, 2015 – Ryan Fraser has joined Vision Real Estate Partners, LLC as senior associate, acquisitions, announced Sam Morreale, the firm's founder and managing partner. The appointment comes at a time of active growth for the Mountain Lakes-based, full-service real estate owner/operator.
A resident of Montclair, Fraser is responsible for underwriting and analytics related to Vision's value-add and opportunistic investment activities. Previously, he served as an investment analyst with Prudential Real Estate Investors, where he underwrote and monitored ground-up development and redevelopment projects across the country. Fraser also has held positions with PENN Capital Management, and completed an investment/development internship with Grosvenor Americas. He earned a bachelor's degree from University of Maryland College Park and an MBA in Real Estate from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill's Kenan-Flagler Business School.
"This position fits my career goals perfectly," Fraser noted. "The thing that really appeals to me is the entrepreneurial approach at Vision Real Estate Partners. It has been exciting to move from such a large organization to a small firm where I get to touch so many aspects of the business and be involved in a wide variety of projects."
As a classic local, hands-on owner specializing in development, property management, asset management and construction, Vision Real Estate Partners is well known for its deep roots and experience in the New Jersey/New York regional marketplace, and for its track record of identifying properties with great potential and transforming them into superior assets. Its high-profile projects include 67 Whippany Road in Whippany, where the firm developed Bayer's new East Coast headquarters and is now master planning that property's 99-acre mixed-use South Campus, and the recently redeveloped and rebranded Crossings at Jefferson Park office campus in Whippany.
"We are in an aggressive growth mode, and our people need to be both accomplished in their specialty and able to navigate the other aspects of our fast-paced business," said Morreale. "Ryan is outstanding with numbers, but he also has excellent interpersonal skills. We already have him out on the front lines, networking and meeting with clients. He is a great addition to our team."
Vision Real Estate Partners currently is developing more than 2 million square feet of space, and owns and manages over 125 acres of land parcels that are available for mixed-use and build-to-suit opportunities in the region.
