As a paid intern Charlie was initially tasked with market research, updating proformas, and small shop leasing across LEGACY’s Kansas City area portfolio. Within his first year Charlie executed multiple leases at Wyandotte Plaza (210,000 sf grocery anchored strip center located in Kansas City, KS) and Truman’s Marketplace (395,000 sf power center located in Grandview, MO), two of Kansas City’s highest profile redevelopments that year, and was hired as a leasing associate.

His persistence, competitiveness, and tenacity helped him land five first-to-market restaurant concepts at the Ward Parkway Center’s Restaurant Pavilion and over of 95,000 sf worth of new tenants to the project in total.
