Once a year, the Nashville Business Journal recognizes Nashville’s top commercial real estate companies in its much-read Book of Lists. The latest list, released a little over a month ago, makes it clear how much our firm has grown in the past year. In 2014, Southeast Venture is ranked as the #4 CRE firm by sales volume (up six places from last year) and the #8 CRE firm by lease volume (up seven places from 2013).
We wanted to take a moment here to commemorate some of the major sales and leases that contributed to this big jump in rankings.
In March 2013, the Viera Cool Springs multifamily property sold for $44 million to Viera Holdings, LLC. Southeast Venture Broker Tarek El Gammel represented the buyer and was assisted by Southeast Venture Broker Ashley Bishop.
Also in 2013, HealthSpring’s MetroCenter campus sold for $36.4 million to out-of-state investor, Griffin Capital Corporation. Southeast Venture Principal Cam Sorenson attracted the interest of several U.S. and global investors for the Southeast Venture developed property before it ultimately sold to Griffin.
- $57 million sale of the Lakes of Bellevue, and the $16 million sale of Marina Point in Chattanooga, both brokered by Tarek
- MTSU’s $11.1 million purchase of MTMC’s old hospital campus, brokered by Southeast Venture Principal Axson West
- Department of Children’s Services deal for the Plaza I building in MetroCenter, 2013’s largest lease, brokered by Principle Todd Alexander and Broker Jimmy Pickel
It’s important for us to take time and appreciate the consistent hard work, proactive nature and victories of our team. Todd’s leadership with Southeast Venture’s team of brokers played a large role in advancing our Nashville Book of Lists rankings. Thank you for sharing in the celebration of our incredible team, clients and big wins of 2013!
