Professional Experience:

Shawn Darling brings ten (10) years of experience in commercial real estate, primarily in the retail sector. She specializes in agency leasing, identifying national and local retailers for prominent shopping centers and high street retail. Shortly after graduating from The Ohio State University with a BSBA in Real Estate, Shawn joined Glimcher (now Washington Prime), where she focused on leasing Class A malls and lifestyle centers across the country. She was involved in closing deals with prestigious national retailers such as American Girl, Design Within Reach, Warby Parker and Vince & Joie.

In 2016, Shawn moved back to Cleveland where she was hired by DDR (now Site Centers) to handle the leasing of nearly five million square feet of retail space in power centers. Shawn was brought on by Cushman & Wakefield | CRESCO Real Estate in 2017 to grow its retail division. She has since closed deals with major national retailers including Bank of America, Chase Bank and Spectrum and unique regional retailers such as Whistle & Keg, a Youngstown based craft beer tasting room.
