Scheer Partners, Inc. Continues Its Staff Expansion, Names Omar S. Mckeithan an Associate


4/24/2012 10:26:47 AM

Rockville, MD (April 24, 2012) – In another sign of its ongoing growth, Scheer Partners, the leading provider of fully integrated commercial real estate services for the health science industry in the Washington and Baltimore metropolitan areas, announces today that it has appointed Omar S. McKeithan an associate with the Rockville-based company.

In his new position with Scheer Partners, McKeithan will focus on business development as well as supporting the company’s new listings. Most recently, McKeithan served as a research associate with Washington-based CoStar Group, where he worked for more than five years.

While at CoStar Group, which is a provider of information and analytic services to the commercial real estate sectors in the United States and the United Kingdom, he managed a portfolio of more than 1,600 properties in the D.C. market.

McKeithan says that he has been evaluating new career options for more than a year. “Given my experience with CoStar Group, I felt I had a significant leg up on other candidates seeking brokerage opportunities,” he says. “The key for me was finding the right fit. I wanted a collegial atmosphere with a small firm that had a proven track record of success.

He adds, “Nothing is ever too complicated unless you fail to see the simplicity of the complication.”

Seeking to work on a variety of “interesting and complicated real estate transactions,” McKeithan says that “Scheer Partners’ fully integrated model, with documented expertise in a variety of competencies, was the perfect fit. I am delighted to join Robert and his team and look forward to making an immediate contribution.”

Prior to joining CoStar Group, McKeithan was a credit manager with Wells Fargo in Waldorf, Md., and, before that, a credit-education specialist with Chantilly-based Intersections, which is a provider of subscription-based consumer-protection services. He also previously served as a credit analyst for several years with Bank of America in Dover, Del.

“We’re extremely pleased to welcome Omar to Scheer Partners,” says Robert Scheer, the company’s founder and president. “He possesses the character attributes we seek in our associates and has demonstrated numerous strong years of relationship-building skills at CoStar Group. Plus, he knows the commercial real estate market ‘like the back of his hand.’ I’m confident that he will add to our talented team and quickly play a key role in the continued success of Scheer Partners in 2012 and beyond.”

The hiring of McKeithan comes as Scheer Partners remains in an expansion mode, having in recent months brought on board a number of executives as the company further increases its market share among clients in the health-care and medical communities.

Other new additions to the team, which now totals 21 professionals, include Marc Schlesinger as a principal; Ken Luchs as a senior vice president; Anna Martin as a commercial property manager; and Yvonne Mirowski as director of marketing and operations.
