Liz Arcos BIO

Liz Arcos is an approachable and experienced Advisor at Phoenix Commercial Properties, an industry-leading commercial real estate company in Raleigh, North Carolina. With a specialty in retail, Liz excels in representing landlords, tenants, buyers, and sellers in commercial transactions. Her approachable nature and deep understanding of the industry make her a trusted partner for many.

Liz graduated from Florida Atlantic University, but her real education came from years of hands-on experience in business. She thrives on helping small business owners and entrepreneurs because she is one herself. Liz’s journey began when she and her husband owned and operated four European Wax Centers in North Carolina and Miami, FL. They successfully grew the stores, established EWC in the North Carolina market, and gained invaluable experience in franchise development, lease negotiations, construction, logistics, and management.

Transitioning into real estate, Liz brought with her a wealth of knowledge and experience. She has a unique ability to connect with new entrepreneurs as well as more seasoned business owners, guiding them through the complexities of commercial real estate with empathy and insight. Her focus on women-owned businesses has led to tremendous success, as she understands their challenges and opportunities firsthand.

Liz’s entrepreneurial spirit continues to thrive. She recently opened the first OHM Fitness franchise in the Raleigh area and serves as the Area Representative for North Carolina, with plans to open three studios in the Triangle area. Her expertise as a Tenant Representative is invaluable in finding prime locations and negotiating leases for these ventures.

When she’s not helping her clients, Liz enjoys playing tennis, hiking, cooking, and spending time with her husband and dog. Liz Arcos is not just a real estate advisor; she’s a mentor, a guide, and a friend to those looking to embark on their own entrepreneurial journeys.

Liz Arcos Reviews

Working with Liz Arcos was an excellent experience. We had outgrown our existing office space and were in the market for a new office with specific requirements regarding location, size, amenities, and budget. Made more challenging by the fact that we had a tight timeline to make it all happen.  Liz listened to our needs and identified sites that would meet our requirements. In the end, not only did she meet, but she exceeded all of our expectations.  My company was incredibly pleased by her dedication, hard work, and professionalism in making this happen for us.  She was a delight to work with, and I highly recommend her services.

I have had the pleasure of working with Liz in commercial real estate for several years. I am a property manager and have been directly involved in building management with her and have worked alongside her in brokerage as well. Liz is enthusiastic and tenacious in finding her clients the right space for their specific needs. She truly cares about her clients and her professionalism always shines through. I am excited to have the opportunity to work with Liz and you should be too!!

My husband and I were looking for property for an Ice Cream shop.  LIz Arcos was fantastic to work with. We have no experience with commercial property and we spent a lot of time with Liz looking at vacant lots and space to lease.  Liz is very knowledgeable and responsive.  She helped us find the perfect location. After finding our location, Liz followed through with many great referrals to complete our project.  We would highly recommend LIz…she’s the best!

Liz Arcos was very helpful during the process of finding a commercial lease that was needed for a less common and very specific use. She also provided many useful contacts and references for local services that were needed.

My company is expanding nationally and North Carolina was one of our targets. We did not know the region very well but Liz Arcos really came through for us. We are in a great space in a great location. I highly recommend Phoenix Commercial and Liz Arcos.

I want to give a BIG shout out to Liz Arcos. She was the biggest blessing when I decided I quickly needed to find a place to grow my small business. She was always on top of sending me all the newest listings and making sure we got to places fast so we could get ahead of the competition. As an already overworked and over stressed female entrepreneur, Liz made this process easy and painless. If you’re looking for a space in the Raleigh area, I 100% recommend Liz Arcos.

Jessica Backman

Liz Arcos is absolutely wonderful! It was nice to work with a woman who made me feel heard and took the time to work with me when I was trying to understand processes around commercial real estate. She was easy to reach and great at communication. 12/10 would work with Liz every time!

Liz handled a complicated multi-party acquisition including sourcing a tenant for Tobacco Road Partners. I strongly recommend her.

We were looking for a location for a new business venture and Liz was very knowledgeable about the area. She helped us to quickly find multiple locations that met our criteria and even found things that we couldn’t even find listed! She was able to help us to negotiate a great deal on the space we found! Would definitely work with Liz for any future adventures!

Liz is professional, knowledgeable and genuinely cares about her clients. She has a great attitude and is a pleasure to work with. She did a great job from start to finish!

My experience with Curt and Liz at Phoenix Commercial Properties was outstanding! I was looking for that needle-in-a-haystack office that is super rare; however, they worked every possible strategy to find my perfect fit. I was especially impressed that even though I was not one of the big corporate clients I was treated with the same responsive service and helpful guidance throughout the process. I highly recommend contacting them if you are thinking of buying or leasing a commercial space. They know their stuff!!

Liz Arcos was amazing. Coming from out of state, Liz oriented me to the Raleigh area and patiently showed me numerous properties. She was very knowledgeable about each site we visited. Liz was so nice, she even gave me a list of great places to eat. I highly recommend Liz and Phoenix Commercial Properties

Liz helped me find a tenant for my commercial property. From start to finish, her professionalism and expertise were unparalleled. She was responsive and communicated throughout the entire process, promptly answering any questions I had and keeping me updated on the process.

Liz is awesome! She was recommended by a connection from Networking Women of the Triangle and we couldn’t be happier! She listened to our needs, and helped us find the perfect space for our first brick & mortar store. Look forward to continuing to work with Liz when the time is right as we expand our footprint in the Triangle.
