HFF Expands Carolinas Presence with Eight-Person Capital Markets Team

CHARLOTTE, N.C.--()--Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announced today that it has expanded its Carolinas presence with the addition of an eight-person capital markets team. The team, formerly of Cushman & Wakefield Thalhimer, a Cushman & Wakefield regional affiliate, will focus on capital markets transactions in the industrial, office, land and multi-housing sectors enhancing the current team of Ryan Clutter, Travis Anderson and Cory Fowler.

Chris Norvell joins HFF as a senior managing director with more than 20 years of industry experience and will focus primarily on industrial investment sales throughout the Carolinas and Southeast. During the past eight years, he has completed more than 18 million square feet of industrial transactions exceeding $1 billion in value in the Southeast and Carolinas. Norvell previously led the leasing and development efforts for some of the area’s largest industrial developers and owners, including Duke Realty and Clarion Partners. Norvell is a member of the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR), Triangle Area Office Building Association (TRAOBA) and the Downtown Raleigh Alliance, and holds a bachelor’s degree from North Carolina State University.

Justin Good joins HFF as a managing director specializing in multi-housing and land investment sales opportunities throughout the Carolinas and Southeast. Prior to Cushman & Wakefield, he worked with Cassidy Turley where he was instrumental in building its Carolinas Land Services team. During the past seven years, he has completed more than $500 million in transactions throughout the region. Good is a member of Urban Land Institute and the Triangle Commercial Association of Realtors. He received his bachelor’s degree from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill.

Also joining the Carolinas’ multi-housing investment sales team is Allan Lynch, who joins as a director. While at Cushman & Wakefield, Lynch founded the Cushman & Wakefield Thalhimer multi-housing division and within 18 months established a market-leading team. Prior to his time at Cushman, he worked with Engler Financial Group of Atlanta, where he was part of a team that closed more than $1.5 billion in investment sales and joint venture equity transactions. He also spent time at Trammell Crow Company and Anglo Irish Bank. Lynch attended the University of North Carolina where he earned his bachelor’s degree.

Scot Humphrey, who joins the firm as a director, will work closely with Ryan Clutter in HFF’s Carolinas office investment sales practice while also working with Norvell and Clutter on industrial transactions. With more than 10 years of experience, Humphrey has been involved in investment sales transactions totaling more than $1 billion. He began his career in commercial real estate in Washington, D.C. as an analyst with Cassidy Turley. Humphrey earned his master’s in real estate from Johns Hopkins University and bachelor’s from North Carolina State University.

Additional team members include two real estate analysts, Sarah Godwin and Patrick Nally; a graphics coordinator, Sarah Spain; and a production coordinator, Deanna Connolly.

“We are very excited with the addition of Chris, Justin, Scot and Allan to the HFF Carolinas team. These four individuals bring a wealth of experience, credibility, talent, and most importantly, high professional integrity to our firm. They will immediately enhance our service offering to our clients and expand our Carolinas office into two new property sectors. Our practice will now have dynamic multi-housing and industrial investment sales teams. Further, our office and land sale businesses are strengthened considerably with the addition of these quality individuals,” commented Ryan Clutter, co-head of the HFF Carolinas office.

HFF recently rebranded its Charlotte office as HFF Carolinas to better represent the office’s mission of servicing its clients at the highest levels throughout the Carolinas region. “Consistent with the HFF approach, our enhanced team will operate as one unit, putting the clients’ needs above all else, and advising them in all markets in North and South Carolina. Collectively, the now seven-member HFF Carolinas team of transaction professionals has sold, capitalized and financed more than $15 billion of real estate in the region,” added Clutter. HFF plans to lease space in the Raleigh market soon, expanding the Carolinas office footprint.

Travis Anderson, co-head of HFF Carolinas alongside Clutter, and leader of the office’s debt and equity placement business, added, “Not only will the addition of these professionals help HFF establish new service lines in the multi-housing, industrial and land investment sale practices, but we are also fortunate to be doing this with a team of professionals that believe in HFF’s unique culture.”

”We are delighted to welcome this group to HFF. It is a truly rare opportunity to find a team of this size and caliber that so perfectly encompasses the firm’s culture and vision,” added Scott Galloway, executive managing director and executive committee member overseeing the HFF Carolinas expansion.

“Our team is extremely excited to have the opportunity to join Ryan, Travis, and the HFF Carolinas team. The collective assets of each individual on the team are perfect complements to one another and, combined with the strength and culture of HFF’s national capital markets platform, are a real game changer for us and our clients,” commented Norvell.
