I am Win Johnson, my “Real Estate Expertise” is in Retail Leasing, Buying and in all areas of Commercial Real Estate and I operate the "Commercial Division" of Southern Living Realty, LLC.
I have been a Business Consultant and Advisor for new and expanding business for my entire career.
For over thirty (30) years I was the Owner of a General Contracting Company, Win and Associates, Inc. I built thousands of retail stores, offices and medical facilities in malls, strip-centers and free standing in thirty-four (34) states.
I was the COO of a Jewelry manufacturing company. I designed, built and operated forty-eight (48) retail stores in seventeen (17) states. Over the years, I have read, evaluated and signed more leases than I can remember. I have worked extensively with Business owners in leasing spaces, buying and designing/building retail stores, medical facilities and offices.
I signed my first Mall Lease in 1974 at Four Seasons Mall in Greensboro. I have learned a lot over the past 43 years, with my money, and I will use that knowledge and experience to guide my clients in their successful commercial endeavors.
