February 09, 2021


Atlanta and Miami – Transwestern Real Estate Services (TRS) announces its investment sales teams in Atlanta and Miami have joined forces to create a fully integrated investment sales platform with an expanded footprint across the Southeast. Between March 2020 and January 2021, the team completed 19 investment sales transactions totaling $386.2 million.

"The pandemic gave us a chance to examine how we can bring more value to our clients," said Transwestern Senior Managing Director Jon Kleinberg. "We aren't simply adding more dots to a map. By building a true partnership between our teams, we can harness the power of more than 100 years of combined experience, expertise, and relationships on every deal."

Along with Kleinberg, the newly integrated team includes Senior Managing Directors John Bell, Kevin Markwordt and Mike McGaughy, Managing Director Fred Victor, Vice President Stuart Carrington and Analysts Peyton Nunn and Robert Saunders.

"This pivot and the creation of a one-stop-shop is a natural extension of our philosophy to provide better, more personalized service to our clients," said Bell. "Through this team structure, we can offer immediate market intelligence, realistic underwriting and pricing guidance, and deeper buyer procurement across asset types, which leads to higher price performance."

Over the last 10 months, the Southeast Investment Sales team has facilitated 19 dispositions across retail, office, healthcare, multifamily and land sectors. Notable transactions include:

  • The Huntsville Office Portfolio, a six-property, 1.03 million-square-foot project in Huntsville, Alabama, sold for $83 million, or $81 per square foot.
  • Parkside at the Beach, a 288-unit multifamily community in Panama City Beach, Florida, sold for $57.3 million, or $198,785 per unit, representing the city's highest per-unit sales price.
  • 6262 Sunset Drive, a 96,779-square-foot medical/professional office tower in Miami sold for $36.7 million, or $379 per square foot.
  • Brookhaven Medical Center II, a 51,429-square-foot, Class A medical office building in Atlanta, traded for $29.8 million, or $581 per square foot.
  • TBC Place I and II, two single-story R&D buildings totaling 177,236 square feet in Durham, North Carolina, sold for $24.1 million, or $136 per square foot.
  • North Logan Commons, a 175,969-square-foot retail power center in northeast Atlanta, sold for $15.6 million, or $88 per square foot.
