Rosenthal Properties is one of Washington’s most reputable, fully integrated commercial real estate companies. Founded in 1999, our business focus has been on the acquisition, development, ownership and operation of investment-grade retail, office and industrial properties in Washington, D.C., Virginia, and Maryland.
Rosenthal Properties was founded by Glenn Rosenthal to focus on principal side investing after working as an institutional investment sales broker for over twenty years. During this period he was consistently recognized as one of the top commercial real estate brokers in Metropolitan Washington, D.C. area. As a Washington, DC native, Mr. Rosenthal has extensive local market knowledge, which has been an essential part of his strategy of investing in “barriers-to-entry” markets.
As a result of his extensive market knowledge and credibility in the marketplace, Mr. Rosenthal has forged new joint venture relationships with both institutional equity investors and private investors to structure acquisitions that meet the needs of today’s investors. Rosenthal Properties is actively seeking to build new relationships and expand its portfolio.
