(AUGUST 9, 2018 – MIAMI) – Transwestern today announces the expansion of its Capital Markets team with the additions of Nicholas Diaz-Silveira as an associate and Robert Saunders as an analyst to source, coordinate, and execute investment sales transactions for office, retail, industrial, multifamily, and development projects throughout Florida. The new hires will work with Managing Director John Bell, who spearheads the South Florida Capital Markets team.
“We are excited to welcome Nicholas and Robert to the team, as investment sales activity in Florida’s major markets remains robust across property types and shows no signs of slowing,” said Bell. “While investors are optimistically cautious, we continue to see abundant capital pouring into the market. The strategic expansion of our team at this defining time – one of the longest periods of consistent growth in the commercial real estate sector – will bolster our ability to complete swift, successful transactions on behalf of our clients.”
Diaz-Silveira will enhance the team’s marketing initiatives, market research, and property targeting, and Saunders will support the team with underwriting, documentation, and contact management.
Diaz-Silveira developed his sales acumen as a headhunter in the medical device and pharmaceutical industry at Weber & Co. and later in the software industry. He earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Duke University.
Saunders brings more than four years of experience in commercial real estate, preceded by a 10-year career in retail management. Prior to Transwestern, he worked as a Real Estate Investment Analyst for ESJ Capital Partners, where he was responsible for all underwriting materials leading to $200 million of closed transactions. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration and a master’s degree in real estate development.
