Steve Symsack has maintained a high-performance track record for sales and real estate investments, with management and leadership expertise in corporate and entrepreneurial environments.  Steve joined Gershman Commercial in 2011, where he  continues  to work with clients in both landlord and tenant representation for retail and office properties.  He also serves as a consultant to privately-owned real estate portfolios held by trusts and financial institutions.

Steve’s institutional experience includes representation of U.S. Bancorp, Advantage Capital, Great Southern Bank, the FDIC, Central Bank, the St. Louis Treasurer’s Office and the St. Louis Redevelopment Corporation.

Prior to joining Gershman, Steve was Vice President of Business Development for Pyramid Companies, the largest developer of mixed-use historic properties in the region.  During his tenure with Pyramid, he worked with Federal and State Historic Tax Credits, Tax Incremental Financing and Brownfield Credits.

Steve’s efforts as a broker are founded in his real estate development experience.  Steve represents his clients in a manner allowing each a financial perspective of the deal, rather than offering a purely transactional experience. His portfolio management experience of properties in 32 states, and the knowledge gained from the construction and leasing of building projects for national tenants, including Walgreens Drug Company, Sears, Ruler Food Stores, MidAtlantic Trust, Tuesday Morning, American Multi-Cinema, Metropolitan Life Insurance, Southeast Bank and the Prudential Company underscores the effectiveness of his business model servicing his clients.

In addition to Steve’s commercial development experience, he acted as both a consultant and a construction manager for three golf course projects, including Tapawingo National Golf Course (a Gary Player Signature Golf Course) and its surrounding residential community located in Sunset Hills, Missouri.
