Avison Young to Acquire CRE Industry Service Lines from Madison Marquette


Avison Young has signed an agreement to acquire Madison Marquette’s office and industrial property management, agency leasing and project management service lines. The trio of services will operate under the Avison Young brand and the deal is expected to close in September.

The acquisition includes more than 20 msf, and 235 team members including, property managers, agency leasing professionals, project managers, building engineers and accountants that will integrate with the firm’s markets primarily in Texas and California, the East Coast Region and, adding a new market for the firm in Hawaii. The combined operations will elevate both the client experience and Avison Young’s competitive advantage in the real estate industry, amplifying the firm’s presence in 11 states.

Over the past year, Avison Young has invested in expanding its service offerings to support occupiers, owners and investors as they navigate through accelerating marketplace needs during challenging times. The firm’s expansion of property management, agency leasing and project management services lines in its robust Texas and California operations, significantly bolsters Avison Young’s presence in those geographically important markets. Avison Young’s data analytics, technology and global real estate intelligence platform coupled with Madison Marquette’s trophy assets and institutional clients, such as CenterPoint Energy, Starwood Property Trust, LLC and Principal Global Investors, formulate a mutually transformative opportunity for both firms and for their clients who will benefit from their fundamental strengths and operations.

”Growing our real estate management platform across the U.S. is a strategic priority for Avison Young. This transaction underscores our commitment to delivering new, improved and expanded services in all markets, especially those that are critical to all of our growing clients’ needs,” commented Randel Waites, Principal and Managing Director, U.S. Real Estate Management Services Group at Avison Young. “Madison Marquette’s solutions-oriented approach to real estate management services complements our entrepreneurial and client-centric solutions, delivering long-term sustainable improvement in CRE services across the industries and critical operating environments of Avison Young’s clients.”

The unification of multi-sector assets and services stretches from the East Coast to Hawaii. Avison Young’s Texas market alone will gain 68 property management assets with a sum of 12.2 msf. The Houston market inherits the largest portfolio of property management buildings with 54 properties at 11.2 msf and Dallas adding 14 buildings totaling 966.5k sf. California will add 27 buildings at 4.2 msf; 2.5 msf on the East Coast, followed by Hawaii at seven buildings totaling 1.2 msf. The Hawaiian assets are comprised primarily of class A office buildings in downtown Honolulu.

Avison Young’s transformative expansion of capabilities and service offerings also includes the addition of seven seasoned industry leaders coming from Madison Marquette. In Houston, Wade Bowlin will join the firm as Principal and Managing Director, Kim Shapiro and Brad Sinclair will be Principals focusing on Agency Leasing and Brenda Dougherty will join as Principal, Director, Texas Real Estate Management Services. In Irvine, CA Jim Proehl will join as Principal and Director of the Western Region, Real Estate Management Services and Eileen Doody and Mark Mattis will join as Principals specializing in Agency Leasing.
