B6 Real Estate Advisors has expanded its New Jersey team with the addition of a broker focused on investment sales in Bergen County.
The Manhattan-based investment sales and capital advisory brokerage firm, which was founded by Paul J. Massey Jr., announced Wednesday that it has hired Brian Streilein as a director. He joins the company from JLL, bringing nearly a decade of commercial real estate brokerage experience.
“With his impressive commercial real estate background and transaction record, we are confident Brian will help our team continue to grow its presence in the New Jersey market,” said Neil Heilberg, chief operating officer of B6. “He will play a fundamental role in developing important client relationships within the tristate area with his deep industry knowledge.”
As a director with JLL, Streilein focused on multifamily development sites in the Bronx, according to a news release. He also served as a vice president of investment sales for Lee & Associates in Columbia, Maryland.
Streilein started his commercial real estate brokerage career in 2012 as an associate at Massey Knakal Realty Services, the news release said. He was part of a team focused on eastern Brooklyn, completing more than 50 transactions of various asset types.
Following the acquisition of Massey Knakal by Cushman & Wakefield in 2014, Streilein was promoted to director of sales.
“I am eager and excited to expand B6’s footprint to the Bergen County area and look forward to working with a team of professionals dedicated to client service,” Streilein said. “As a New Jersey native and former Massey Knakal team member, this was the perfect next step in my career and an unparalleled opportunity to work with the best in the industry.”
Streilein grew up in Point Pleasant and earned a bachelor’s degree from Villanova University, the news release said. He was a member of the varsity baseball team and drafted in the 2010 MLB First Year Player Draft by the Houston Astros.
