Frank has been involved in all aspects of construction and development from his early years. In 1992, Mr. Marretti moved from his home city, Baltimore Maryland, to Las Vegas Nevada where shortly thereafter he entered into the Commercial Brokerage arena. For the next decade Frank was affiliated with two National Brokerage firms: Marcus & Millichap, and Colliers International. During this time, he was twice voted Broker of the Year at Marcus & Millichap, was known for being the youngest Broker in company history to qualify for the National Achievement Awards trip at the age of 25, and from 1998 to 2001, Frank worked with both Institutional and Private Clients with Colliers International. Mr. Marretti was also encouraged by Colliers International to head the Las Vegas Investment Services Group.
During the late 90’s Frank was acquiring more assets than he was brokering and, due to his successful track record, Frank transitioned his business to focus on real estate development and general contracting. In 1997, Mr. Marretti purchased his first significant re-development project – a 70,000 square foot vacant retail building. Then, in 2001, Frank started his own Development company which focused on commercial real estate development, land acquisition, redevelopment, joint ventures, and general contracting. Frank had employed nearly 20 professionals between his Development and General Contracting companies as he oversaw the projects, including the financing, acquisition, planning leasing, and construction.
Frank has developed a diverse portfolio of properties including retail, office, special purpose, multi-family, restaurants, custom homes and mixed-use properties. This includes but is not exclusive to a specialty for redeveloping infill neighborhood projects, and ground-up construction. Frank’s most current project is a Private/Public partnership of sorts with the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV). The project is a mixed-use development located at 4700 S. Maryland Parkway, Las Vegas, NV 89119 across from UNLV itself. Upon completion, the project will include retail, professional offices, luxury apartment homes, the UNLV Police Headquarters, and a seven-story parking structure.
Today with over 25 years of experience in Las Vegas and the Southwest United States, Frank continues to specialize in commercial real estate brokerage, contracting, and developing. To date Frank has developed, re-developed, purchased, financed, and brokered projects in excess of $1B.
