With more than 30 years of experience in real estate law, Steve is valued by his clients for his skill in working on real estate development and ownership from start to finish, representing clients in the retail, office, hospitality, restaurant, industrial and commercial sectors.
Steve is well-versed in real estate development and finance; acquisition of undeveloped land or existing buildings; dispositions and exchanges; all types of leasing and ground leasing; design and construction contracting; tax increment financing; private placement memoranda; formation of public-private partnerships; joint ventures; debt restructuring and workouts; community development authority; and property management and operations.
That depth of experience and his pragmatic approach helps Steve to take proactive steps to avoid potential challenges and to identify cost-effective solutions for those that do arise.
Outside of his role at KJK, Steve is an avid woodworker whose handcrafted furniture is displayed in friends’ homes across the country. During warm months, Steve can also be found at car shows throughout Northeast Ohio alongside his restored 1961 Chevrolet Impala convertible.
“We have a lot of long-term relationships with our clients at KJK. I have one client whom I’ve served for nearly 30 years. Clients come to us, they don’t tend to go away.” – Steven A. Marrer
