Capitol Equities Awarded 2015 CoStar Power Broker Awards

Columbus, OH (March 15, 2016)

Capitol Equities Realty has been selected by CoStar Group (NASDAQ: CSGP), commercial real estate’s leading independent research firm, to receive two 2015 CoStar Power Broker Awards. These awards recognize the “best of the best” in commercial real estate brokerage by highlighting the U.S. firms and individual brokers who closed the highest transaction volumes in commercial property sales or leases for the previous year in their respective markets.

As the largest professional research organization serving the commercial real estate industry, CoStar is uniquely positioned to identify the top firms and brokers in each market throughout the U.S. All awards are based on transaction data maintained in CoStar’s commercial real estate database, which is the largest independently researched database of commercial real estate property information available online.

J.R. Kern, a principal at Capitol Equities, qualified as one of the top commercial brokers in central Ohio based on total lease transactions – both in office and retail sections – completed in 2015.

In order to be selected for these honors Capitol Equities was evaluated against other commercial real estate brokerage firms active in its region by CoStar Group, and subsequently ranked among the top firms in the market. The complete list of 2015 CoStar Power Broker Awards can be found at
