While Covid-19 Caused Office Vacancies…WCRE Moves and Doubles Office Space in Marlton, New Jersey Headquarters

WCRE Moves & Doubles Office Space in Marlton, NJ HeadquartersDue to COVID-19, office space vacancies have risen throughout the country and some companies have been forced to scale back. But not Marlton, New Jersey based Wolf Commercial Real Estate (WCRE); they moved in early March 2021 to larger headquarters and doubled their space. A full-service Philadelphia and South Jersey commercial real estate brokerage, advisory and property management services company, they are proud to announce their move to One Holtec Drive, Marlton, NJ. The firm specializes in office, retail, medical, industrial, and investment properties in the Greater Philadelphia region, Southeastern Pennsylvania, Northeastern Pennsylvania, the Lehigh Valley and Southern New Jersey.

Bucking the trend in office space vacancies, Managing Principal and Founder Jason Wolf is proud of WCRE’s ability and need to move. He explained,

“Our move is an indication of our belief in the future. While we have all struggled in so many ways through the Pandemic, we are feeling optimistic and see great potential in the market.”

Wolf is betting on the idea that, despite the downsizing that has occurred in response to the pandemic, the pendulum will swing back, and WCRE will be well-positioned to meet the anticipated demand for office space. He continued,

“We know that people thrive in an energized work environment, and collaboration breeds success. We embrace that philosophy fully.” Wolf adds more about future opportunities, and said, “What’s going to start happening over the next few years is flight to quality. Tenants in this market, especially post-pandemic, are looking for healthier, newer, inspired spaces to encourage their staff to return to the office.”

WCRE also takes great pride in their place in the community, as Wolf explains,

“This is our home, our mission, our work, and our play. Our community is growing, and we are part of that through our charitable arm – The WCRE Foundation. Our staff gets totally involved in our charities, and their commitment to helping others is a great demonstration of their dedication to our clients as well.”

The WCRE Foundation supports six local charities with strong personal connections to their employees. Bancroft, CARES Institute at Rowan University, the American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen Foundation-Philadelphia, Samaritan New Jersey, and the Jewish Federation of Southern Jersey are the Foundations current beneficiaries. Each year, The WCRE Foundation hosts both a Celebrity Charity Golf Event and an Ice Hockey Event, that includes 6 Philadelphia Flyers Alumni playing in a competitive ice hockey game with donors and enthusiasts that support their mission. Flyers Alumni that have participated in past events include Brian Propp, John LeClair, Todd Fedoruk, Doug Crossman, Kjell Samuelsson, Andre Faust and Brad Marsh. Lou Nolan (Flyers Emcee) and Kerry Frasier (Retired NHL referee) are also involved each year.

WCRE oversees more than 200 properties

WCRE oversees more than 200 properties, comprising 4.8 million square feet, and still embodies the values set forth when Wolf founded the company: integrity, quality, teamwork, and focus.

In addition to teamwork being a core pillar of the company’s philosophy, it resonates on another level with several of the staff members who are former collegiate and professional athletes. Brian Propp played for the Philadelphia Flyers, Ryan Barikian played college football at Towson, Mitchell Russell played national championship caliber lacrosse at Duke University, Sean Kelly played baseball for Rutgers University, Phil Costa played college football at University of Maryland and in the NFL for the Dallas Cowboys, and Michael Scanzano played college baseball for University of Pittsburgh and minor league professional baseball.
