Patrick Toomey and Tom Lagos have joined forces at JLL. While running competing teams in the industry, they found that they shared a deep conviction in a client-first approach to the business. Tom and Patrick also realized that they would have the proper balance of business development and execution to have a high-quality and high-volume team.
With Patrick’s institutional principal-side background, he is able to provide a perspective and level of service to clients that is unequaled in the industry. Tom has a dynamic business development strength and deep client relationships with an outstanding track record that, when combined with the execution side that Patrick provides, will bring outstanding brokerage experience to their clients. Together they have transacted more than 500 individual commercial retail real estate deals valued at more than $4 billion, which provides a depth and experience that is unparalleled in their peer group. Their focus will be on multi-tenant retail center disposition assignments. The JLL platform is an excellent place to bring these skills and experiences together.
Joining Patrick and Tom is Jordan Uttal, who will be spearheading the team’s net lease practice. Jordan has years of experience in this space, as well as a unique background in marketing having been one of the founding members of a Silicon Valley startup specializing in interactive online marketing, which is now publicly traded and valued in the billions. Jordan has brought this background to the commercial real estate industry and has developed numerous innovations for marketing commercial properties. His depth of knowledge and insight on net lease investments will be a tremendous asset to the team and its clients alike.
Heather Boren joins the team from Colliers where she led the Shopping Center Advisers team as the lead analyst and underwriter. Heather has valued and marketed hundreds of properties and her depth of knowledge and experience go well beyond that of underwriting. Heather teaches ARGUS (the industry standard underwriting program for commercial real estate) at Pepperdine University and UCLA, and is a professor of real estate at Pepperdine University. She teaches graduate-level ARGUS and leasing strategies.
Maadhevi Comar also has come from the Shopping Center Advisers team to lead the marketing effort of the group. With a broad experience in positioning commercial properties for sale, plus an advanced degree from University of California Berkeley, Maadhevi produces quality work on the team’s best-in-class marketing products. Maadhevi leads not only property marketing but also all of the team’s outbound marketing materials.
Finally, Alex Salvatierra leads the team’s graphic production effort. With years of experience in graphical production in the commercial real estate field, Alex’s work is known to be the highest quality. He produces all of the team’s visual content. Alex is not only known for his industry-leading work, but also for training top level professionals at Colliers International and Matthews Retail Group – individuals who still benefit from his insights and lessons today.
Together we are excited and honored to be part of the JLL team, and look forward to providing the highest level of execution for our clients!
