Stream moves toward commitment of robust full-service industrial platform.
HOUSTON (October 08, 2020) — Stream Realty Partners (Stream), a full-service national real estate investment, development and services company, today announced that despite many peer firms tapping the brakes, Stream’s Houston office is doubling-down on growth, projecting over 100% increase in talent acquisition by year-end 2021.
“We successfully lease and manage a 30 million square foot portfolio of institutional-grade industrial assets in the Houston market. We attribute that achievement to our people—the cornerstone of our company. We want to continue that momentum by heavily investing in talented people across the platform,” said Justin Robinson, Partner at Stream. “We hire the best people and immerse them in a culture driven by excellence and arm them with industry-leading training, resources and market intelligence. Add the expectation of a strong work ethic, and you have an unstoppable real estate professional who can deliver solutions.”
Stream’s industrial division, which recently expanded with the addition of Managing Director Tyler Maner, has continued to see rapid demand in the Houston market. As a result, Maner has brought on Heath Donica, formerly a professional baseball player with the Oakland Athletics System, and Andrew Littlefield, formerly with Transwestern as Associates and Analyst, Davis Lamberton to support the growth of the tenant representation platform. Focusing on both agency leasing and tenant representation, William Carpenter has been recruited from Boyd Commercial as an associate, further bolstering efforts.
In addition to these recent talent acquisitions, Stream will be announcing two experienced new hires by the end of the year. “The industrial real estate sector is growing and evolving dramatically, and Houston’s industrial market has grown and become more sophisticated as a result,” said Matteson Hamilton, Managing Director and Partner with Stream. “At Stream, we pride ourselves on being good students of the market, and our planned growth mirrors that.”
Despite challenges caused by COVID-19, Stream’s Houston Industrial team is forecasting their best year yet from a transaction volume standpoint. Year-to-date, Stream’s Houston industrial team has closed on 144 industrial transactions totaling over 4.7 million square feet, 15 of which were over 100,000 square feet.
