   Randy Lipton



In January 1994, Randy Lipton formed The Lipton Group as successor to Lipton Realty, Inc. to handle the management of the families’ portfolio of residential and commercial properties, along with  selective third party properties.  Throughout his career, Randy has been involved in every aspect of the real estate business, from acquisition,  development, financing and rehabilitation to disposition.  His management approach for every property in the portfolio is to understand the owner’s objectives and then use the knowledge of his entire team to achieve these goals through creative repositioning, recommending added value scenarios or other tools to maximize the return to the owner.  Randy graduated from Arizona State University with a B.A. in  finance and general business.  He is a Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) and a member of the Real Estate Board of Metropolitan St. Louis.  Randy has served on the Boards and Committees of various charitable and non-profit organizations throughout the region.
