Real Estate Specialist

Publix Associate

We don't just build stores in random locations! Real Estate Specialists perform in-depth analysis to help Publix determine the best locations.

How to Apply


Real Estate Specialists (RES) are part of the Real Estate Strategy team who contribute to the process for choosing new Publix locations. The team scrupulously evaluates the 300 or so Publix site submissions received each year in the Real Estate department. After a site has been selected and opened, RESs perform a first and second year sales performance variance analysis for each newly opened Publix store. This analysis is used as a tool to improve existing site selection disciplines. Over the past five years, RESs have performed an average of 49 analyses each year. As stores continue to age they are evaluated for remodeling. The RESs initiate the remodel process to analyze and report on store performance to assist in making long term recommendations for each location.

Furthermore, RESs support and assist Real Estate Managers with developing and implementing territory strategies. They do this by analyzing and reporting on sales and profits of existing stores, lease obligations, site plan layouts, and the operations and conditions of surrounding competition. RESs also develop relationships with individuals from associated professions within the commercial development field.
