REAL ESTATE FORUM PRESENTS
METHODOLOGY: Deal information is for commissionable US industrial leasing and investment sales transactions closed
during the 12-month period between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017. All nominees were required to submit a deal list,
which remained confidential. In order to even the playing field between brokers in varying markets, they were scored
on three fields: the total number of transactions, the total square footage and the total value of all transactions. The final
ranking was based on the collective score of the three fields. In the event of a tie, the broker(s) with the highest dollar
value of deals took the higher ranking. Individual nominees’ ranking within the categories (among the finalists) are
indicated (in parenthesis) after their total figures.
Of all property sectors within commercial real estate, industrial has proven
to be one of the most enduring. Fueled by consumer confidence and the
meteoric rise of e-commerce, billions of dollars in capital has been flowing
into the asset class from both investors and tenants.
In fact—as the preceding feature stated—industrial is experiencing a
Golden Age of sorts, with expansion outlasting any other in the post-World
War II era. And that growth isn’t going to end any time soon, if recent trends
are any indication.
That’s good news for the professionals who operate within the nation’s
industrial sector, who have completed innumerable deals over the past several years. Whether it’s bringing tenants and landlords together or closing a
sales transaction, these brokers often worked miracles in what is a phenomenally tight market.
As such, Real Estate Forum is spotlighting some of the most prolific leasing
and investment sales brokers in the nation’s industrial arena. Whether they
worked in teams or as individuals, these professionals have arranged some of
the biggest industrial transactions over a 12-months period.*
