The Executive Team
We are here to service your commercial real estate needs with experience
"As the department manager of Bank of the West’s Trust Real Estate Department, I have been working with MEI Realty for approximately 15 years. They manage several valuable trophy properties for us in Beverly Hills in addition to a few other commercial and retail assets on the westside. They are professional and very competent. Their daily management is thorough, they maintain an excellent working relationship with all our building tenants, their team is proficient and very responsive to all requests for information, and their monthly reports are thorough and always accurate. I can’t recommend this company highly enough and have a very high level of confidence in their knowledge, commitment and integrity."

"Our family trust has utilized the team at MEI real estate services for the last 16 years. They have rehabbed and taken a completely vacant property to 100% occupancy in a short period of time and have great success in retaining long-term tenants over the years due to outstanding service. They have leased, managed, and refinanced our assets, and have successfully sorted through ownership issues with our complex family trust entity. For many years they have provided solutions to problems and were successful in securing the best financing for our assets. It has been proven time again that MEI demonstrates exemplary service and treats everyone from the owners to the tenants with the utmost respect. MEI has had a great, long-lasting and positive impact on our real estate holdings, and we would highly recommend their services to individuals, family trusts, and institutional owners across the nation."
"Ed McKeegan and the team at MEI have been part of our lives for the last 20 years. They have managed, leased, refinanced, and redeveloped our portfolio of properties in Santa Monica for the duration of our ownership and we couldn’t be more satisfied with their firm. They are far from just a property management and brokerage company and I have found them to be profoundly creative, forward-thinking, and supportive in the development of our very lucrative real estate properties on the westside. They have secured financing for several of our projects, negotiated long-term retail, office, and multifamily leases, managed our portfolio, and always put our interests as owners first. The management of our real estate portfolio is exceptionally professional, and the team is trustworthy and has integrity above it all. Wherever I am in the world, I know my home base is taken care of at the highest degree of service. Thank you to Ed, and the rest of the team. I would highly recommend your services to any owner or family trust looking for real estate services in Southern California."
"MEI is always equipped for whatever difficulty a transaction may bring them. I am the Vice President and Senior Asset Manager at Wells Fargo Bank and together, and together we have worked on some extremely arduous assets including environmentally contaminated sites, complicated tenant issues, office condo sales, ground lease encumbrances, market issues, etc. MEI has always risen to the challenge and has produced excellent sales-results for me and a number of clients. Ed McKeegan and his staff are problem-solvers and are highly responsive in addition to being professional, tenacious, easy to work with, honest, and skillful. They are amongst the best real estate minds and professionals in the business. I would not hesitate to recommend MEI for commercial real estate sale transactions and property management. MEI has closed dozens of retail, office, medical, industrial, and land sales transactions for our team in the past several years and we look forward to continuing our relationship with the firm for many years to come."

"We engaged the services of MEI Real Estate Services in 1997 somewhat by default. Our neighbors, with whom we share street access and parking for our small retail center, entered into contract with MEI without our knowledge. I was skeptical because I didn’t have the opportunity to consider other management companies. Our attorney interviewed Ed McKeegan and some of the employees and reported that his initial impression was positive. His impression was MEI is a legitimate, professional operation. We have enjoyed a close working relationship with the MEI staff since then. MEI communicates well with us as property owners and maintains a good relationship with the tenants. They provide detailed monthly and annual reports as well as yearly proposed budgets. They strive to obtain the tenants we are looking for and work hard to negotiate leases that work for all the parties involved. They have been able to secure well- qualified tenants in new leasing and improved the overall quality of our property. Based on their overall performance and the amount of work they do for the property, I consider the management fees very reasonable and well earned. We do not live in the immediate area of our property, so a responsible manager nearby is essential. I highly recommend MEI Real Estate Services for anyone in need of quality property management or leasing services."
"MEI has proven to have been an excellent choice for our property management and leasing needs for the past several years. Rodney and his management team immediately pickled up the slack getting billing back in order along with working quickly through issues with delinquent tenants. Additionally, the leasing team of Dennis Dillon and Chelsea Novelli has been spot on with quick turnarounds and placement of new quality tenants at top of the market rates. Knowing Ed McKeegan oversees all critical documentation himself takes away any additional concern. I highly recommend the team at MEI for all commercial real estate needs."
"As a full-service property manager and leasing agent, MEI Real Estate Services helped stabilize our property by improving the quality of our tenants, reporting systems, insurance and overall management. The transition to their team was easier than I expected, and our ongoing relationship continues to be consistently smooth and reliable. MEI runs a hands-on operation with excellent communication between the different facets of management and leasing."
"As generational owners of significant commercial real estate assets throughout Southern California we have benefitted from the rich blend of talent at MEI. Always on top of their game, this team is hard working, creative, and dedicated to closing deals. My family has never been dissatisfied, and I Strongly recommend the MEI team to owners who seek financial success."
