He specializes in tenant and agency representation for industrial properties. We sat down with them to get to know them better.
What aspects of commercial real estate are appealing to you?
“I enjoy the diversity and the unique challenge that comes with every new deal,” said Brendan. “It allows you to be on your feet for a good portion of the day instead of behind a desk.”
“I like getting to know the industry,” said Chris. “Researching various properties and trends is exciting to me because it allows me to familiarize myself with our client’s needs and identify solutions.”
What about joining the JLL family excites you the most?
“I am really looking forward to becoming a part of a huge family of support staff and brokers,” said Brendan. “I also look forward to getting to know some of the successful brokers at JLL, and being able to pick their brains and learn what makes them tick.”
“I really enjoy the office environment at JLL and all of the people I now get to work with,” said Chris.
Who inspires you and why?
“I am inspired by anyone who is successful in life,” said Brendan. “I think it is important to look at industry leaders whether they be in technology, finance, real estate, or any other industry. I like to learn about their journey to the pinnacle of their professions and try to apply a little piece of that to my life.”
“I am inspired by my grandfather’s passion for his work and his dedication to success, without sacrificing his values,” said Chris. “His drive motivates my work integrity and pushes me to succeed.”
What do you like to do outside of the office?
“I like to play with my dog, hangout with my family and friends, explore, and work on my golf game,” said Brendan. “Coming from a lifetime of baseball, it has been a struggle to figure out golf.”
“I really enjoy spending time outdoors either camping, hunting or fishing,” said Chris.
What are you looking forward to the most about joining the team you did?
“Bill and Steve are well known, successful and knowledgeable in all aspects of Industrial real estate,” said Brendan. “I know they will be great mentors who will push me to achieve my best. I am truly blessed to be working with both of them, and hope to learn a lot.”
“The industry experience of my team members is very inspiring and provides me with a huge learning opportunity,” said Chris.
