WASHINGTON – Transwestern Real Estate Services (TRS) announces the addition of Lucy Kitchin as Managing Director, Government Services. Based in the Washington, D.C., office, Kitchin will lead the region’s Government Services advisory group, stimulating both private and public sector leasing business on behalf of owners and investors and advising clients locally and nationally.

“Lucy’s well-known position in the industry combined with her keen market sense, financial acumen and trove of GSA experience will bring tremendous value to our organization,” said Phillip McCarthy, Transwestern Executive Managing Co-Director. “We know she will continue to raise the bar in delivering sound, creative solutions for our clients.”

As a Managing Director with the Government Investor Services group at JLL, Kitchin was responsible for comprehensive real estate advisory services focused on leasing transactions with the federal government on behalf of owners and investors. A commercial real estate veteran, Kitchin has completed approximately 15 million square feet in government leases, including transactions for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Department of Education, the Department of Defense, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, among many others.

“We’re at a dynamic moment in GSA leasing right now with the change in government and release of stimulus packages that provide an opportunity to spark growth in the market,” said Kitchin. “I’m excited to support my Transwestern colleagues and the firm’s clients through anticipated regulatory changes and infrastructure projects on both a regional and national level.”
