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.
