With over 20 years of experience in commercial real estate, Earhart has become one of the region’s foremost retail experts specializing in tenant and landlord representation, lease negotiation, site selection, and dispositions for local and national retailers. He has been a multi-million-dollar producer in Louisiana, and regularly closes deals in all aspects of commercial properties including industrial, office, land, and investment sales.
Earhart’s landlord representation includes institutional and local owners with retail portfolios ranging from 5,000 square feet up to major power centers.
