Executive Search for Real Estate Companies

The RCLCO Difference

Executive Search leverages RCLCO’s Management Consulting practice to offer clients holistic insights and assessments into placing key leadership roles. Our goal is to strengthen organizations and optimize their output, all from the perspective of human capital.


Our executive search and recruiting team, led by Managing Director Ellen Klasson, offers:

Direct Industry Experience. Having worked in real estate roles directly, we have the context and the ability to deeply understand the client’s business, organization, and culture. This background enables a more analytical approach to assessing a candidate’s viability for any given role.

A Consultative, Problem-Solving Approach. Our team takes the time at the start of a search to immerse ourselves in your business, understanding your goals, challenges, team makeup, and culture. We tailor a job description and our candidate outreach to most effectively identify leaders who can take you where you want to go as an organization.

Transparency and Candor. We choose honesty and direct communication when interacting with our clients and candidates. There are no “information voids” in a search with us.

Passion and Commitment. We will serve as your trusted advisors, scouring the market for candidates who not just fit a skillset but also a culture. Developing close relationships with you and the candidate pool while learning more about your business and its impacts in the process drives us to find a successful match.
