WHO WE ARE
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
RED Development has long been able to attract outstanding, experienced executives for roles across the company. Part of that appeal is our flat structure which promotes speedy decision-making and rewards entrepreneurial thinking. Through this wealth of industry talent, we’ve been able to incorporate the best practices of blue-chip real estate and retail companies in a manner that fits well within RED’s own nimble and fast-moving culture.
Run by a cohesive team of executives that includes its company founders, RED Development is both big enough and small enough – a privately held, well-capitalized organization with a rock-solid reputation for delivering projects and deals as promised.
EXPANDING RED DEVELOPMENT’S REACH
Over the years, RED has grown by building remarkable retail developments in markets including Arizona, Indiana, Kansas, Nebraska, Nevada and Texas. From this successful development platform, we honed expertise in shopping center leasing, management, marketing and more.
In 2004 the company formed an asset management services group to meet growing demand for skilled property management among third-party owners. We continued to open more high-profile developments and by 2007 this work had positioned the company for new opportunities, such as embarking on a company-defining project, CityScape in downtown Phoenix.
EVOLVING AS A FULL-SERVICE REAL ESTATE COMPANY
Within the economic challenges that first arose in 2008, RED Development evolved as a strong player in a changed real estate landscape with strong access to capital to fuel acquisitions. Today RED Development is a wholly integrated, full-service real estate company well-matched to today’s marketplace, where repositioning, remerchandising and adding value to existing properties are essential strategies for success.
What started as RED, named for its two original partners, now stands for something more: Resilient, Enterprising and Different. These defining characteristics come together in a multi-faceted company that is thriving by delivering excellence and value to its partners in today’s demanding real estate environment.
MANAGING PARTNER, LEASING
As one of RED’s founding partners, Scott Rehorn has led the company’s highly successful leasing activities since 1995. Rehorn has built a top-notch leasing team that prides itself on developing outstanding relationships with key national and regional retailers, restaurants and entertainment tenants – essential not only for development projects, but also for repositioning and remerchandising existing centers for RED and other property owner clients. Among Rehorn’s many successes has been the ability to attract and retain marquee tenants such as Anthropologie, Apple, Chico’s, Crate and Barrel, lululemon, Lowe’s, Best Buy, Von Maur, Scheels, Target, P.F. Chang’s, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and many others to RED projects and markets.
MANAGING PARTNER, DEVELOPMENT
As a founding partner, Mike Ebert has shaped the company’s successful development area in projects across the country since 1995. His keen insights and knowledge about the qualities that come together in a compelling property are an essential part of RED’s continued evolution as a preferred partner for national retailers, real estate investors and property owners. Among his many significant contributions to RED, Ebert led the groundbreaking public-private partnership with the City of Phoenix to develop CityScape, the high-profile, 1.2 million square-foot, mixed-use urban destination in downtown Phoenix that is a signature project for both the company and the city.

At RED Development and across our portfolio, we strive to be a committed and responsive community partner. We contribute through a combination of employee volunteerism, financial support, in-kind donations and partnerships with non-profit organizations.
