ATLANTA, GA – April 20, 2021 – Stream Realty Partners (Stream), a national real estate services, development, and investment company, announced today that it has hired Brad Bays as Managing Director in the Atlanta office. In this position, Bays will lead the industrial tenant representation team and help spearhead growth of the occupier services platform in Atlanta.
Bays said, “In my previous role, I would work with Stream and always liked their approach to business—they are creative, agile and always looking to provide the best opportunities for their clients. I’m really excited to partner with Bradley Dunn and continue growing Stream’s industrial presence here in Atlanta.”
With 16 years of experience in the industry, Bays, SIOR, was previously with King Industrial Realty, Inc. as a Vice President and focused on corporate client representation in leasing, acquisitions, dispositions, build-to-suit assignments, and investment sales of warehouse and manufacturing facilities. Bays has represented several notable clients in Atlanta, including Builders FirstSource, FR8 Auctions, COSCO Shipping Logistics and Williams Partners L.P.
Bradley Dunn, Managing Director, said, “Brad is going to add a ton of value to our team with his industrial tenant representation and client services expertise, as my skillset is very landlord focused. This leadership blend will create the perfect balance for our team to offer comprehensive services for our clients.”
Stream’s industrial platform in Atlanta has grown significantly under Dunn’s stewardship over the past five years to a team of 20 employees. Co-Managing Partners Ben Hautt and Simon Arpiarian credit strategic partnerships with clients, experienced team and a booming industrial market as reasons for the rapid growth.
Hautt said, “Brad is joining our office at a very exciting time. Our industrial team is the most productive it has been in years and we do not anticipate it slowing down any time soon. The Atlanta market has absorbed 26 million square feet in just the last 12 months alone, which accounts for almost 11 percent of the total U.S. absorption. Simply put, in Atlanta, this is the healthiest industrial market we have ever seen from a supply and demand perspective.”
