Norwalk, CT According to Commercial real estate services firm The Rochlin Organization, Valley East Management has purchased 40 Richards Ave. Located in Fairfield County, along the Rte. 1 corridor, 40 Richards has been an ideal destination for businesses looking for a suburban office location within a short distance from more urban areas such as South Norwalk (SONO) and Stamford.

In five years Valley East partners Jeffrey Supinsky and Bob Agahi have made their mark as owners of suburban office buildings and have decided to grow their presence into the Connecticut marketplace. 

“The city of Norwalk has experienced a decade long revitalization with over 1,700 new luxury apartments, upscale restaurants, the new SoNo Connection Mall project, and countless other amenities, we couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to own this asset in this market,” said Supinsky, operating partner at Valley East Building Management. "40 Richards represents another opportunity for our company to shine through our hands-on customer-service and diligent management approach, I look forward to growing our family of over 300 tenants."

The Rochlin Organization serves as exclusive leasing agent for Valley East. Adam Rochlin said, "Valley East's ease of operation makes the lease-up of their vacant spaces quick and efficient, it is truly impressive."
