Kirk Garabedian

Director, Commercial Property Investments

Kirk Garabedian is Director of Commercial Property Investments at KW Commercial since 2015.  Prior to that, Kirk was an Associate Vice President at Marcus & Millichap since 2005. With nearly 15-years of experience Kirk has been involved in the closing, transacting and the evaluation of nearly half a billion dollars’ worth of commercial real estate.

Kirk specializes in complex transactions throughout Los Angeles County, with experience throughout Southern California and parts of the United States spanning the spectrum of asset classes.  Kirk’s product specializations include private-client level retail, industrial, office, multi-family apartments and land development.

Kirk has extensive knowledge in properties with high vacancy challenges, deferred maintenance issues, undesirable lease encumbrances, underutilized land and non-credit tenancy; successfully marrying appropriate debt-instruments to these unconventional assets has helped Kirk’s clients earn a significant premium in value.  A premium which is multiplied through a 1031 exchange.  Kirk is an expert in helping clients successfully execute a 1031-tax deferred exchange, as most of his sales encounter exchange scenarios with constrained time tables and must-meet deadlines.

Kirk’s creativity plus patient tenacity has helped his clients navigate the most complex scenarios, while enjoying the process and building a lifelong client-broker friendship.

Kirk is a graduate of the USC Marshall School of Business. He is married and has two young daughters.
