NEW YORK, May 25, 2010 - The Real Estate Board of New York has renamed one of its top property management awards after Edward Riguardi.
"It is a tremendous privilege to have this prestigious award named after me by my peers at REBNY," said Edward Riguardi, special advisor to Jones Lang LaSalle's New York office. "It has been a great honor to be a member and an officer of an organization that has worked very hard to address the many important issues that the city's real estate market must face." "The Commercial Breakfast Planning Committee, chaired by Mike Norton of Tishman Speyer and Morris Wiesenberg of RFR Realty, wanted to do something to recognize Edward Riguardi's years of service to the real estate industry," said Steven Spinola, president of REBNY. With more than 45 years of experience in the New York commercial real estate industry, Riguardi has been called the "Dean of Property Management in New York. He is a special advisor to Jones Lang LaSalle's New York office, consulting with the firm concerning the oversight and expansion of its property management portfolio in the New York metropolitan area. He was previously a managing director with senior-level oversight of Jones Lang LaSalle's property management portfolio in the New York metropolitan area. Prior to joining Jones Lang LaSalle, Riguardi served as chairman of Colliers ABR, and, before that, as president and one of the founders of Keppel Tener Riguardi. As president, he was responsible for creating KTR's Property Management Group, which grew to oversee more than 6 million square feet of institutional property, and for managing the growth of the firm's brokerage, consulting and appraisal businesses. Earlier, Riguardi spent 29 years at Williams Real Estate, rising from its operations and engineering department to being named one of the firm's three senior executive vice presidents, a partner and a member of Williams' six-man executive committee, which oversaw the operations of the firm. At its peak, the company's portfolio consisted of nearly 30 million square feet of office space in 200 Manhattan office buildings, encompassing more than 5,000 tenants. Riguardi holds engineering, real estate and insurance degrees. He is also a licensed real estate and insurance broker in New York, and earned his RPA designation from BOMA International, his CPM designation from the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM), and his CRE designation from the American Society of Real Estate Counselors. In 1982, Riguardi was honored by the Real Estate Board of New York as its Management Man of the Year and has won accolades for his work in safety regulations, city codes, rehabilitation of properties and adding value to a client's property. Recently, Riguardi was honored with REBNY's Commercial Management Leadership Award and The Bernard H. Mendik Lifetime Leadership in Real Estate Award. Riguardi has been an active member and participant with REBNY for more than 30 years. He served on the Board of Governors and Executive Committee of The Real Estate Board of New York, overseeing its management division. He was previously a vice president and member of the Executive Committee and Board of Directors of the Realty Advisory Board. Riguardi has served three prior mayors on real estate committees in New York and, for more than 20 years, served as president and chairman of the Realty Advisory Board Labor Negotiating Team, a group that negotiates the labor agreements with labor organizations, representing building owners in the real estate industry. He also served on various committees critiquing our industries experience to September 11, 2001 and the August 14, 2003 blackout. Riguardi is a past president of BOMA, and has served as chairman of the Local Law #5 Committee of the Real Estate Board of New York, as well as the Real Estate Board's liaison to New York City commissions on asbestos, handicap, SRO, filing fees, strobe lighting, construction, elevators, local laws, and the American Disability Act. Riguardi also served on the Mayor's Committee on the Commission of School Facilities, the Committee on Maintenance Reform, and The New York City Building Code Review.

The real estate "lifer" is son of Edward Riguardi, the former chairman of Colliers ABR who is known as "The Dean of Property Management" in New York. The son learned well from the father, and Riguardi, who completed his first big deal as a college sophomore, has spent a career broadening the platform he inherited from his dad.He served as vice chairman and principal at Colliers prior to joining Jones Lang LaSalle.Riguardi said JLL has influenced other firms."Respectfully, I think a lot of firms are trying to emulate the international platform of Jones Lang LaSalle," he said.But he nonetheless admits to cribbing notes from C & W and CBRE."I think we have emulated a little bit more of their style in New York in that we are trying to be more market focused and develop more of a market leadership here," he said. Post-CBRE and Insignia merger, Riguardi sees the situation thus: "I think right now, CBRE and C & W are obviously the two big market leaders," he said. "But Newmark, Studley and ourselves are really trying to gain the most market share," he said.Following the CBRE merger, some executives said they were surprised there had been relatively few defection from the company, but added that significant departures could still be in the offing."I don,t think six months or a year would ever be enough time for people there to evaluate whether they want to make a change," said Riguardi."If there were a shakeout, I don,t think it would be this quick."Woody Heller, who left CBRE to head investment sales at Studley, said he was surprised by the outcome so far."To date, the exodus is pretty modest," he said."Which is great for them, and a little surprising for the outside world.But it,s still a two-year proposition in which all the people who are going to leave, will leave."Meanwhile, in several areas, JLL is closing in or passing the Big Two.JLL,s property management division has achieved phenomenal results, more than doubling in size since Riguardi took over.It,s now second behind Cushman & Wakefield, according to Crain,s."When we started here, we had approximately 20 million square feet we managed out of our office," said Riguardi."We now manage 45 million square feet."While a small part of that business came over from Colliers with Riguardi, he said, most of it is the result of recent efforts by the company,s "experienced team."JLL is also the largest construction management firm in the city, with more than 50 people working in that division, Riguardi said."It gives us another touch point with clients," he said.As far as what he,s done with the company,s culture, Riguardi said, "we,ve gotten people more on the edge of their chair.We want them out, and want them involved in the community."Besides the Bank of America deal in Midtown, which is "going to be a cornerstone deal for people to look to as the market turns around," JLL also did some big work downtown in 2003, and a total of four million square feet leasing in all of Manhattan, Riguardi said. Riguardi grew up in Staten Island, and trips to Manhattan with his father growing up were spent taking in a building as well as a hockey game or show."We,d always stop off at a building, and real estate was always dinner table talk," he said.By the time he was a sophomore at Iona College, Riguardi had a real estate license and completed his first transaction that year when he made an 8,000 square foot lease deal at 60 Hudson Square for a sugar commodities firm."It was a good start," he said. Riguardi then went on to join his father at Williams Real Estate, before going on to found Koeppel Tener Riguardi Inc. with his father, which merged with Abrams Benisch and Riker in 1994 to form Colliers ABR.The two still work together at JLL, his father coming in four days a week and serving as "a senior resource to all our businesses."Riguardi has enjoyed the partnership."We manage it pretty well.He,s a great person first.But we don,t always agree, and that,s fun too," he said. "When we disagree we are workers and when we go home, he,s my father," Riguardi said. [cached]
