The Agency Commercial Advisory, led by Managing Partner Alexander Koustas, has been named among the city’s “most dynamic brokerage teams” by the Los Angeles Business Journal (LABJ) in its second, annual installment of “Who’s Brokering L.A.” According to LABJ, the feature is designed to “shine a light on those hard-working teams and team leaders” and thank them for their contributions to the thriving L.A. commercial real estate community and local economy.
“On behalf of the entire Commercial Advisory team, we are thrilled to be recognized for our hard work and dedication to our clients,” says Alexander, who was recognized with fellow Commercial Advisory agents Jon Swire, Martin Fish, Kim Shore and Gideon Lang-Laddie. “We are looking forward to a robust end to the year as we serve our clients in the thriving Southern California market.”
