Who We Are
Since our founding in 1960, Continental Realty Corporation has become a leading member of the Mid-Atlantic real estate community, distinctive among development firms in our approach to investment, the depth of our expertise and the diversity of our properties. As our history and real estate portfolio illustrate, we have consistently delivered a level of excellence that exceeds the expectations of our customers, employees and investors. Whether rehabilitating an underperforming asset or building a mixed-use project from the ground up, we pursue development opportunities that have the potential to create immediate return and long-term value. Our diverse real estate portfolio encompasses shopping centers, apartment communities, condominiums, mixed-use properties, office parks, flex space, warehouse buildings, restaurants and undeveloped land.
Integral to Continental Realty’s success is the leadership of our principals John A. Luetkemeyer Jr., J.M. Schapiro, J. Mark Schapiro and along with a dedicated core group of professionals with complementary skills in real estate acquisition and development, property management, finance and law. Our principals’ hands-on philosophy and our access to in-house resources bring synergy and efficiency to every step of a project. The level of expertise and individual attention that Continental brings to each of its real estate endeavors creates quality products of enduring value that improve with time.
Throughout our history, Continental’s entrepreneurial spirit has lead to many diverse and successful real estate endeavors. Our skills and resources constantly come into play when contemplating each new venture, including site selection, acquisition, management, revitalization and leasing. This pioneering spirit has allowed us to move effectively into other geographic regions and into such non-traditional real estate venues as movie theaters and fast food restaurants.
