Levin Management Promotes Vanessa Fernandez to Senior Leasing Representative
Appointment Recognizes Outstanding Performance and Contribution
NORTH PLAINFIELD, N.J., April 19, 2019 – Vanessa Fernandez has been promoted to senior leasing representative at Levin Management Corporation (LMC), announced Matthew K. Harding, chief executive officer of the North Plainfield-based commercial real estate services firm. The Chester, N.J., resident joined LMC as a leasing representative in 2015.
Fernandez is responsible for more than 1 million square feet of gross leasable area at 12 New Jersey properties within LMC’s management and leasing portfolio. Transactional highlights during her tenure with LMC include an anchor lease with Filipino grocer FilStop at Clifton Plaza in Clifton. Among many others, she also arranged leases with household-name tenants Trader Joe’s and Ulta at North Village Shopping Center in North Brunswick, both of which have bolstered that center’s leading position in its Middlesex County marketplace.
“Since joining the team I have had the chance to work on a variety of different assignments and deals, including several high-profile, big-box leases,” she said. “This experience has allowed me to learn quickly and grow professionally. I am appreciative to LMC for this opportunity and excited to take on even bigger challenges as I move forward in my new role.”
Fernandez is a member of the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC).

We take great pride not only in our shopping centers but in having some of the best and brightest leasing professionals in the industry on our team to represent these properties and help clients achieve their goals.”
