How it Happened

In 1992, Bruce Koniver first encountered Lyle Stern. At that time, Lyle was managing a prominent retailer's expansion on the West Coast of Florida, and Bruce was leasing a lifestyle center. Working together and having the opportunity to view each other in action, the two immediately realized that tremendous synergies existed between them. They soon decided to unite their unique talents, experiences and abilities in the hopes of building a firm that offered clients access to the combined benefits of their diverse backgrounds. Today, the result of that vision - Koniver Stern - is one of the most respected retail real estate combinations in the country.

A fifteen-year veteran of the real estate industry, Lyle Stern is primarily focused on the areas of retail real estate leasing, landlord brokerage and retail development consulting. Lyle has been responsible for representing multinational, national, regional and local tenants such as Banana Republic, Kenneth Cole, Whole Foods Market, Starbucks Coffee and Mr. Chow.


Our Team

Noah Fox, Associate

Prior to joining Koniver Stern, Mr. Fox worked on tax and white-collar criminal cases at Black Srebnick Kornspan Stumpf for five years. With his strong financial and accounting background, he is able to skillfully analyze and interpret complex financial data which helps him structure creative commercial deals for his clients. He has negotiated both national retail tenant and restaurant deals representing both the landlord and tenant. In addition, he serves as the Vice-Chair of the Miami Beach Zoning Board of Adjustment, where he serves as the Real Estate Development Seat. This experience has given him a better understanding of the municipal issues that tenants and landlords face with the build-out of their spaces and how to efficiently resolve those issues.
Since joining Koniver Stern, Noah has participated in the successful representation of landlords by procuring some of the most important new restaurants in Miami and Miami Beach including Planta, Stubborn Seed, and Cevi.che 105 amongst others. In addition, he has also represented tenants in their expansion efforts. An example of those tenants are both The Little Beet, who recently opened in Aventura Mall and are scheduled to open in Coconut Grove along with Cvi.Che 105 whom he helped grow from a one unit operator to currently having seven restaurants open or in their pipeline (including Aventura Mall, Dadeland Mall, South of Fifth and West Avenue).
Prior to law school, Mr. Fox graduated from Tulane University with honors, earning an undergraduate degree in Finance and a Master of Accounting degree.
