New company to specialize in real estate investment, development and management.
Las Vegas – Brass Cap Companies, joined together by leaders in the commercial real estate industry, launched a boutique development company, real estate investment and brokerage service.
The Brass Cap Companies partners, Mike Chernine, Jason Kuckler, Larry Monkarsh and Tim Castello share their knowledge, as well as strategic relationships with sub-contractors, consultants, municipalities, lobbyists, brokers, banks, and property owners. Collectively, these industry veterans have more than eight decades of invaluable experience.
Mike Chernine began his career in a commercial escrow department in 1988 and later created LandBaron Investments as a headquarters for private equity and institutional real estate investment and development. Chernine has managed more than $500 million in assets around Southwestern United States and has bought and successfully sold more than $1 billion in land during his career. He specializes in seeking opportunities and capital raising.
Encompassing more than 15 years of commercial real estate development experience, Jason Kuckler, has been responsible for the pre-table development of more than 2.5 million square feet of commercial real estate.
Larry Monkarsh, a third generation contractor and developer, opened LM Construction Company in 1996 and has built over 5 million square feet of Big Box, Mid Bay and Flex Space in the Southern Nevada market.
Tim Castello, a life-long Nevadan, brings with him 16 years of experience in construction estimating, project management, and commercial real estate. Castello was the managing partner of his family-owned business Castello Excavation & Grading prior to joining LandBaron Investments, where his responsibilities included entitling land for development and real estate brokerage.
“Our team’s market knowledge, experience and collaboration will provide our clients with all-encompassing brokerage, investment and development services; we can provide a one-stop shop for tenants and build to suit users,” said Brass Cap Companies partner, Chernine. “There are no other firms focusing on fee development, joint ventures and hybrids that can provide the services that we can at Brass Cap. We are reaching out to the brokerage community to assist their clients in planning their new buildings. The brokers keep their fees coming in and going out.”
Brass Cap Companies will focus on pre-development land use planning, entitlements, site plans and design, pre-construction and construction services. It will also provide turnkey “build to suit” and “shovel ready” projects, offering joint venture opportunities to meet the ever changing demand for viable, affordable, industrial and retail properties in the Las Vegas Valley for short-term or long-term investment strategies.
“We can provide market studies on locations, negotiate the acquisition of land, entitle property, prepare a budget and construction schedule, and provide construction management and general contracting services,” said Chernine. “We have worked with landowners that overpaid for their land at the height of the market and need to build in order to return their capital, and other landowners just looking to maximize their return. At Brass Cap Companies, we do it all.”
Brass Cap Companies has three projects underway:
• An industrial construction project consisting of a 32,000 square foot building and a 40,000 square foot building at Sunset and 215 Beltway.
• Developer of Legacy Charter Schools with 3 schools in the first phase that consist of 70,000 +/- each campus.
