Combines forces with Cory Beall, Darren Lake to create Hawai‘i’s largest retail real estate brokerage


(May 4, 2018) — Roger Lyons, a 30-year veteran of the Hawai‘i commercial real estate industry, has joined The Beall Corporation as a principal, adding strength and reach to the practice of President Cory Beall and Principal Darren Lake.



Lyons’ addition creates a merger of long-established real estate practices with complementary capabilities in landlord project leasing and tenant representation. The combination forms Hawai‘i’s largest locally based, retail-focused real estate brokerage firm.


For decades, Lyons has specialized in the shopping center industry representing tenants and landlords throughout the state of Hawai‘i and on the mainland. His work includes multiple-market transactions for national tenants; pre-leasing for new development projects and hotel consulting. Since 1999, Lyons has focused on representing national-brand retailers in the Hawai‘i market.


A member of the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC), Lyons is viewed as a thought-leader in the industry. He appears frequently at real estate conferences and seminars throughout the country. He was perennially a top-producing, leading broker at CBRE Inc. and is a recipient of the company’s national Larry Perrish Award honoring dedication, expertise and cooperation as a member of its Retail Services business line.

Lyons, Beall and Lake have previously worked together on various business projects.


“I was extremely impressed with (The Beall Corporation’s) systems in place, its knowledge of the market, and it was an opportunity for me to be hands-on in guiding the direction and the shaping of the business moving forward as a collectively larger group,” Lyons said. “The three of us are going to shape it and grow it and it’s going to get bigger and better — and those opportunities don’t come along very often.”


Together, the team forms a stronger and much more comprehensive service provider. “Roger’s strength and core business that he established fits perfectly with our core strength, and we complement each other perfectly. It’s a merger of strengths,” Beall said.

Darren brings strong experience from some more well-known landlords and developers, Beall added.


Beall, Lyons and Lake bring combined specialties together that entail very little overlap, Lake said. “Together, we’re a much stronger, more comprehensive service provider,” he said. A high-resolution photo of the principals is available:
