Rappaport Celebrates 35 Years


On May 31st, 1984, Gary D. Rappaport took his first of many major steps into the world of retail real estate, purchasing Milford Mill Shopping Center in Baltimore, Maryland.  Over the years, his success in the industry snowballed with every acquisition and every effectively managed and leased endeavor.

Today, Rappaport is a respected name in the D.C. Metropolitan region, renowned for high-quality and trusted retail advisory services, such as construction management, property management, development, tenant representation, and landlord representation.  With leasing signs coating the streets of the District as well as suburban shopping centers throughout Maryland and Virginia, Rappaport truly has become synonymous with retail.

Team Rappaport cultivated a portfolio of over 60 shopping centers spanning all types of retail, built lasting and deep connections with local, regional and national clients and established a base of more than 1,500 existing tenants, and coordinated the construction and development of two major mixed-use projects in Washington, D.C.: Avec and Skyland Town Center.  Without the perseverance and commitment of both Gary and the entire Rappaport team, these strides would never have come to fruition.
