Nashville, Tenn. – Transwestern today announces it has expanded its operations to Nashville, Tennessee, to meet growing demand for real estate advisory services in the market. Providing agency leasing, tenant advisory, capital markets and asset services to real estate owners and users throughout the market, the company’s 35th office has been retained to manage One Century Place at 26 Century Blvd. on behalf of Griffin Capital Company LLC.
“Nashville is increasingly a target market for investors that require strategic real estate advisory services,” said Chip Clarke, Transwestern’s President │ Americas. “With the strength of the Nashville economy, driven by the healthcare, technology, music and tourism industries, the timing is right for Transwestern to leverage our best-in-class service and expand our footprint in the region.”
Nashville has one of the most stable economies in the country, with only 2.3 percent unemployment in the MSA as of May 2017, well below the national average of 4.3 percent. The market has seen a high volume of relocations and expansions, including corporate anchors such as HCA, Mars Pet Care, Asurion, Bridgestone, Nissan North America, Dollar General and Caterpillar Financial. These factors, coupled with the market’s low vacancy rate, have made Nashville an increasingly important target for real estate capital and created high demand for full-service real estate advisory.
Transwestern’s Southeast President Bruce Ford, who is based in Atlanta with a proven track record of leadership and innovation, will lead the operations in Nashville, where he will be responsible for overall strategy, business development, recruitment and financial performance.
“Transwestern utilizes an innovative approach to property management that reflects our unique culture while producing measurable results for our clients – from owners to occupants to vendors and customers visiting a property. This is the foundation upon which we will drive value for One Century Place and its tenants, and establish Transwestern’s reputation as the leading service provider in Nashville,” Ford said.
