Bryce Grafton has joined Franklin Street Real Estate Services as director of industrial investment sales in the firm's Tampa office.
Grafton brings more than 16 years of experience in the commercial real estate industry, previously serving as CEO of Catalyst Development where he aided investors in the repositioning of value-add assets and raised more than $20 million in private capital. He began his career in land development and construction.
"Bryce has deep connections across the country which will enable our industrial division to penetrate not only the markets in which we are already active, but key markets that do not yet know the Franklin Street brand," said CEO Andrew Wright. "I’m extremely confident in his knowledge and business development strategies and am looking forward to seeing his career flourish with the Franklin Street platform."
Grafton maintains a positive outlook on the industrial market, citing a year-end spike in industrial sales with increasingly high returns across the country. He also expects industrial to positively gain as online shopping continues to increase, forcing retailers to shrink their brick-and-mortar presence while shifting inventory to an increasing number of fulfillment centers.
A graduate of Western Illinois University, Grafton holds a bachelor's degree in organizational communication and management marketing. He is a licensed Florida Real Estate Salesperson.
