Anthony Behar has comprehensive knowledge of and elite experience in the commercial and industrial real estate industry. A native of Los Angeles, he has spent that past 17 years working at Major Properties, one of the largest independent commercial, industrial and investment real estate brokerages in the Los Angeles region. Along with his firm, Anthony has a high level of experience and expertise in the Los Angeles area – especially in the commercial industry. Major Properties is very focused on and familiar with the community, and they are often referred to as the “Downtown Los Angeles Experts.”
Major Properties has a long and successful history, with over 54 years in business as a boutique brokerage firm representing property owners, investors, developers, landlords and tenants on the acquisition and disposition of commercial and industrial real estate properties. Anthony has sold or leased over one million square feet of space. He has been a consistent top performer, earning Major Properties’ President’s Award in 2005 and 2010 and Salesman of the Year award in 2007, 2009, 2014, and 2015.
In 2017, Anthony was promoted to executive vice president and partner at Major Properties. He explains that it was truly an honor to become the first non-family member to be added to the corporate management team in the firm’s history. As a firm partner, Anthony manages staff recruitment and trains/mentors junior agents, which helps him better serve his existing client base. On the business side, he advises and consults with property owners and investors in diverse industries including manufacturing, distribution, wholesale, textiles and more. He helps to guide clients on various issues, including situations when there may be a proposed change of use for land or property. He works closely with his clients to ensure the best possible outcome for the client, the industry and the community.
Anthony graduated from San Diego State University with a degree in speech communication, which he applies to his work every day. He explains, “Communication is a vital part of what I do. Understanding real estate is only one part of my business – being a good listener and truly understanding my clients’ needs, problems and objectives is equally as critical.” He adds that managing diverse people, personalities, and emotions is part of every transaction whether he is working with individuals, families or businesses.
In addition to his successful career at Major Properties, Anthony hosts an L.A.-based podcast called, Behar on the Block. It features interviews and segments about real estate and the L.A. community. Anthony’s motto in life is to “Express gratitude every day, appreciate more and complain less.” This, he adds, has made him a better, stronger and happier person both personally and professionally.
