|Jeffrey Thomas has joined the firm as a senior managing director in its Orange County office focused on net lease investment sales nationally. |
HFF has recruited net lease investment sales expert Jeffrey Thomas from CBRE Group to head up and expand its net lease platform nationally.
Thomas, who has more than 15 years of experience in the commercial real estate
industry, was named senior managing director and will be based in HFF's Orange County, CA office. While at CBRE, Thomas was credited with completing more than $3.6 billion in investment sales. Before that he was a senior product manager at LoopNet.com, the online commercial real estate marketing service acquired by CoStar earlier this year.
"We are very focused on the national growth of our net lease platform," noted Mark West, senior managing director and head of the net lease team at HFF. "Our strategy is to find and hire top talent from around the country to best serve our clients."
Thomas' involvement with net lease sales dates back to 1997 when he was part of a team that developed the National Net Leased Properties Group at what was then CB Richard Ellis. He is a graduate of California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo.
