Professional Experience

Tom Flynn is a Senior Vice President of Retail Services for CBRE. With over 25 years of commercial real estate experience, Tom’s vast real estate knowledge has positioned him as a respected leader in the industry. His primary emphasis is representing big-box retail tenants where Tom provides extensive trade area analysis, site selection, contract negotiations, and manages the entitlement process for his clients. Tom also represents landowners with the disposition of land sites. His primary geographic scope includes the Midwest.

Tom’s commercial real estate career began with CBRE in 1994 when he joined the research department in Cleveland. In 1997 he moved into retail brokerage focusing on tenant representation and site acquisition. Mr. Flynn left CBRE and founded Redstone Real Estate Advisors (Redstone) in 2002.  Redstone quickly became the foremost big-box tenant representation and land experts in the eastern Midwest. Tom returned to CBRE in 2008 after CBRE acquired Redstone. Since then, Tom oversees the Northeast Ohio retail team in terms of business development and insight.
