Vantage RES secures Habitat for Humanity’s second ReStore location in Central Jersey

Vantage Real Estate Services announced Friday a large-scale lease by Habitat For Humanity in Hamilton.

Ken Richardson, advisor at Vantage RES, and Monica Walsh, director of client services, worked closely with Habitat for Humanity of Burlington County & Greater Trenton/Princeton CEO Lori Leonard and John Garton, chief financial officer, to secure a 20,000-square-foot lease at Independence Plaza, a 252,000-square-foot community shopping center.

“It was a pleasure working with the Vantage RES and Habitat team. Together we were able to move quickly toward a seamless transaction. We are excited to bring ReStore to the center,” landlord Michael Jemal of IP Associates said.

The new location will serve as Habitat’s second ReStore location. Restore is a home improvement and resale center that sells donated new and gently used furniture, home accessories, building materials and appliances to raise funds to build, rehabilitate and repair homes in partnership with low-income families.

“We are so appreciative of the support we received from Vantage Real Estate Services while negotiating the lease terms for our second ReStore.  Having the resources available that the Vantage team provides made the process almost effortless for us and allowed for us to continue business as usual knowing the transaction was in good hands,” Garton said.
