Albuquerque | Nov 14, 2016 – California Bay Area based Lockehouse Retail Group (LRG) announced the recent launch of its New Mexico office, headed by Mr. Michael Butler.

“Michael is a veteran of retail real estate and an expert in the New Mexico market. He brings significant brokerage and development knowledge and experience to the team,” said Steve Cutter, Founder of LRG.

The Albuquerque office is fully operational as of October, and comes shortly after the launch of Lockehouse’s Restaurant Group in Southern California.

“We’re excited to continue our vision of being able to better service our tenants and clients throughout the entire Western region with premium development and brokerage services,” said Cutter.

Mr. Butler has spent the last 12 years working with landlords and major tenants in the region. He will play a key role as Lockehouse looks to leverage its brand across the Mountain West region.  His previous professional experience in the San Francisco Bay Area and ties to the Pacific Northwest also are a great fit for the Lockehouse footprint.

“Having Michael on the team allows us to expand our development and brokerage services and offer more coverage to our existing tenant roster,” said Josh Amoroso, Partner at LRG.

“It is an honor to be a part of such a reputable and innovative group of professionals who execute diligently for such an incredible group of clients and partners. Lockehouse is a trailblazer in the market and I’m excited to be a part of the team,” said Butler.

“Our goal here is to continue to get things done with the best team possible. Our number one priority has always been servicing our client at the highest level and Michael’s work ethic and attention to detail make him an ideal partner. Having known Michael for many years and seeing both his development and brokerage success in the southwest made bringing him on an easy decision,” Cutter concluded.

Lockehouse currently serves a variety of major tenants throughout California, and lists several million square feet of premium retail real estate.
