I couldn’t be prouder of what our team accomplished last year. Our leasing team takes a proactive market strategy to our  assignments and I’m excited that they were honored with this award. We’re also extremely proud to have Emil continue to lead that way and for him to be acknowledged for his work last year.”


For the fourth year in a row, Gullia was recognized as a top retail leasing broker, given to brokers with a high number of leased square footage. A veteran in the retail commercial real estate business, Gullia represents Hollywood FeedJim ‘N Nick’sGuitar Center and numerous other retail brands.
