Taso joined Lennard in November 2014 and brings with him a diverse background that includes over 35 years of real estate acquisitions, dispositions, and land development.
Land Development has given him the opportunity to gain comprehensive knowledge and expertise from planning to fruition, and adding an additional layer of expertise when advising on investment properties. His multi-layered knowledge of real estate makes him different. He is a real estate expert who fully understands the broader project context and the implications of every decision.
He’s had the privilege of working with prominent developers, institutional and private equity investors, and most national and regional retailers which paint the Canadian landscape. His years of experience is also why many of Taso’s transactions are completed quietly and off-market.
Taso has completed transactions with such retailers as Walmart, Home Depot, Sobeys, Loblaws, LCBO, The Beer Store, all Canadian chartered banks, Canada’s restaurant chains, and over 30 transactions with Shoppers Drug Mart. The relationships developed with retailers have proven invaluable when selling or purchasing a retail property for a client.
With a global perspective and on-the-ground local expertise, Taso has transacted on over $1.8 billion in investment real estate across a variety of asset classes, consulted on over 2 million square feet of new ground-up retail developments, and transacted on over 2,500 acres of development land.
Taso was also the runner-up finalist for the 2019 REX Investment Deal of the Year.
