Veteran commercial real estate advisor Matt Tritschler joins Newmark Knight Frank’s Atlanta office as part of NKF Capital Markets. Tritschler brings more than 30 years of expertise in office and industrial investment sales and capitalizations, as well as development capitalizations, to his role as an executive managing director.
Tritschler’s work spans over $5 billion in transactions across the Southeast, including four recent Class A office deals in Metro Atlanta totaling more than $163 million and 1.1 million square feet:
- $57 million sale of Milton Park (319,000 SF)
- $49.75 million trade of Barrett Lakes (315,000 SF)
- $38.9 million sale of 1000 Parkwood (212,500 SF)
- $19 million trade of 3100 Breckinridge (250,000 SF)
“As we expand our capital markets platform in the Southeast Region, Matt will be instrumental in growing this service line,” said Brett Hunsaker, executive VP, regional managing director.
Tritschler’s hiring comes at key time in the region’s office and industrial markets. According to NKF’s 3Q17 Atlanta Office Market Report, vacancy dropped to 17.2 percent (the lowest rate since 2002) with over 3.7 million square feet in the construction pipeline. Industrial vacancy is below 8.0 percent (including 5.9 million square feet of new space) as companies continue to expand, as noted in NKF’s 3Q17 Atlanta Industrial Market Report.
“Newmark Knight Frank’s resources provide a significant opportunity for growth,” Tritschler said. “I look forward to being a catalyst for continued expansion, particularly at the institutional level.”
Tritschler joins NKF Capital Markets after seven years as principal and head of Southeast Capital Markets at Avison Young. Prior to that, he held leadership and senior management roles with HHF and Colliers International as well as in tax accounting with Grant Thornton in Atlanta. Tritschler is a member of the Urban Land Institute, NAIOP and the Atlanta Commercial Board of REALTORS with multiple industry awards to his credit. The 44-year Atlanta resident earned his undergraduate degree in business administration from The University of Georgia.
