Tele: 727.432.9669

Peter C. Fischbach has been a licensed commercial real estate professional for over 40 years with his real estate brokerage focus being commercial tenant representation. 

Formal Education: Graduate of Barnard/Horace Mann High School, Riverdale, New York. Attended New York University and University of Denver. Licensed in Louisiana then Florida as a Real Estate Broker, since 1979.

Peter has a Florida Certified General Contractor license # CGC 1511979.

Real Estate Experience: A commercial real estate professional since 1977, Peter was recognized by New Orleans' Board of Realtors as a multi-million dollar producer. He was twice awarded special recognition for having the highest yearly volume of business in the city. In 1986 Fischbach earned the prestigious Society of Industrial and Office Realtors designation.

Within real estate brokerage specialties, he can command either side of the lease transaction, a knowledge gained in New Orleans' boom and bust markets of the nineteen eighties. Half of this experience was acquired by exclusively representing tenants, including a thirty million dollar transaction where CNG Producing Company became the signature tenant for a half million square foot building developed byThe Edward J. DeBartolo Organization. Representing landlords, his most valuable experience was earned as leasing manager of NOLA's 1-million square foot Place St. Charles. In 1985, at the peak of a depressed real estate market, the building proudly opened over 50% leased.

Since moving back to the Tampa Bay area in June of 1989, he continued to be active in commercial real estate brokerage and development. From consulting assignments, to representing commercial and office tenants and a few landlords, to investment ownership, Peter has experienced, first hand, the bay area's commercial real estate marketplace.

In 1992 Fischbach purchased the 14,000 ft2 Park View Building in downtown St.Petersburg, selling it 10 years later for 7.2 times its purchase price.

In early 1994, Peter purchased the 85-percent-vacant 42,250 ft2 historic (1928) Snell Arcade Building in downtown St.Petersburg and within a year brought it to full rental occupancy and positive cash flow.

In May 1998, Peter assumed the management & leasing of the totally empty Maximo Plaza Shopping Center in south St.Petersburg as Local Operating Partner. Within 100 days of moving his office to the property, the 120,000 ft2 property was 90% leased, realizing the first positive cash flow for its owners in years.

Late 2004 Fischbach began to extensively redevelop Snell Arcade (405 Central Avenue, St.Petersburg), converting the property to mixed-use condominiums, first renovating then selling the units.

Back to his unique agency brokerage business since 2008, Peter serves Tampa Bay area businesses specializing in real estate investor-buyer needs and tenant representation.

Fischbach's ability to recognize a property’s highest and best use, his proven negotiating ability, plus an extensive construction experience uniquely qualifies Fischbach as a commercial real estate specialist.

Client Testimonials

My company is new and growing fast. We need more space. I thought it would be easy. Look at LoopNet, check out a few locations and sign up.

I wish.

LoopNet is full of jargon and misdirection. You find listings that are no longer available. ("Oh, we just leased that. But I have another space just like it that I can show you.") Bait and switch BS.

After following leads around in circles, I was super frustrated with the process and getting closer to a space crises at the same time. I clicked Peter's site in Google. I really wish I'd done that in the beginning.

Honestly, I have been in business for my entire adult, but I'd never heard of a tenant rep, someone who specializes in helping commercial tenants like me find and lease space. It is an incredibly valuable service. Just knowing about it is worth a semester in business school.

Peter showed some great properties. He listened, came to understand my company and showed space that was relevant and possible. Each new space inspired me to look more. I got new ideas.

Finally when we decided on a great location in downtown St. Pete. I liked everything about it. But finding the right space was just the beginning.

My company is in the medical field and has many special requirements: unique electrical hookups, plumbing for oxigen tanks, and a one-of-a-kind floor plan.

I admit I was daunted by the lease and all the requirements of my company. But Peter stepped up and negotiated a great deal with my new landlord which included a generous build-out allowance.

There are not enough adjectives to describe how much Peter has done for my company. If you are looking to lease commercial space, do yourself a favor and call Peter. You will be real happy that you did.

Unbelievably, I paid nothing for his service. My new landlord took care of that.

Fred Palmer, CEO

I have known and worked with Peter for many years, and would not hesitate to recommend him for any real estate service.

Peter is very knowledgeable in all aspects of commercial real estate, but is particularly adept at negotiating leases and contracts.

Linwood Gilbert, MAI
President at Urban Realty Solutions

From first meeting Peter, and throughout the office suite search process to the negotiations and execution of my office lease, Peter provided excellent communication and professional service. He took the time to really understand my office space needs and was very resourceful in providing timely, valuable information and sage advice. He helped make the whole process a pleasant and friendly one.

I appreciate everything Peter did for me and I highly recommend him to anyone searching for commercial real estate consultations and services.

He is friendly, extremely well-versed in all of the services he offers, and has an unparalleled understanding of real estate in general and the idiosyncrasies of the local Tampa Bay market. 

The landlord might not be happy with the rent, amenities, and contract terms he will negotiate for you, but you and your company will.

We have known and done business with Peter for some 15 years and he has acted for our group of companies in several office, commercial and industrial leases.

He is a seasoned professional, great to work with, always on on top of whats going on in the market and acting not only as a broker but ongoing advisor.

He is a great negotiator and I always feel like we got the best deal possible when we close.

Finally he is a nice guy and like ourselves I'm sure has developed hundreds of other great relationships and friendships in the business.
