Private Capital Office Investment Experts Move to CBRE
CBRE announced this week that James Brady, Campbell Davis and Rachel Shanahan have joined CBRE’s Capital Markets, Investment Properties, practice in Denver. Formerly with Cushman & Wakefield in Denver, the team specializes in helping private capital investors with the disposition of office properties located throughout the Rocky Mountain Region.
“With combined experience that spans finance, leasing, construction, project management and property sales, James, Campbell and Rachel offer their clients a unique, holistic view of real estate investment strategy. Their addition to CBRE will further strengthen our market-leading Capital Markets services in Colorado,” said Pete Schippits, senior managing director and market leader for CBRE’s Colorado region.
In the last year alone, the group facilitated $70 million in office investment sales across the Front Range, including the December 2017 sale of Cherry Tower (231,000 square feet) and the November 2017 sale of the Northrop Grumman office building in Aurora (105,000 square feet). At CBRE, the team will continue to focus on the real estate needs of private capital investors.
“The move to CBRE allows us to elevate the service we provide our private capital investor clients. Now part of the market’s leading Capital Markets practice, we get to work alongside professionals who represent the top in their field. Having access to an in-house Debt and Structured Finance group means we can be a comprehensive, full-service resource. In addition, we will leverage CBRE’s global platform and innovative technology tools to help our clients achieve their business outcomes quickly and efficiently,” said Mr. Brady.
