The Argos East Property Management Company was founded in 1988 by Theo and Stacy Skartsiaris, as a full service property management and leasing company. Our company develops and manages a diverse portfolio of properties throughout Kalamazoo County. Presently a woman owned and Michigan based company, we specialize in office, commercial and retail properties.
Theo and Stacy Skartsiaris founded Theo & Stacy’s Enterprise and Argos East in 1973. Having come from a small town in the south of Greece, the Peloponnese, they established their first restaurant in Flushing, New York in 1969. Having chosen Kalamazoo as their home since 1973, they opened several restaurants where they pass on their rich Greek heritage of fine foods and hospitality.
In 1978, Theo & Stacy’s Enterprises’ real estate division was created. Over the next thirty years, Theo & Stacy added to their portfolio by purchasing various properties in and around Kalamazoo.
Upon Theo’s death in 1994, Stacy became the sole managing partner of the property investment portfolio.
Stacy is currently actively involved in all aspects of the day-to-day operations of the businesses. Consequently, Theo & Stacy’s has evolved into a women owned business by adding Stacy’s two managing partners: Betty Peristeridis, in charge of leasing, property management and property redevelopment and Joanna French, in charge of legal affairs.
Betty Peristeridis joined the team of Argos East and Theo & Stacy’s in October of 1996 and has been a managing partner since 2012. She has been actively involved in real estate development and management of the companies with a concentration on leasing and tenant acquisition.
Betty Peristeridis is actively involved in numerous city wide and charitable organizations. Her involvement on various boards with the city allows her to keep her finger on the pulse and be a presence in Kalamazoo. To further enhance her participation in the companies, she received her Masters of Science in Accountancy from WMU in 2001.
