Avison Young has recognized eight New Jersey brokers among its top producers last year.
According to the real estate services firm, the members of its 2021 Circle of Excellence include Jeffrey Heller, principal and managing director of its New Jersey office, along with principals Andrew Broad, Ronald Ganter, Edward English, Thomas Giannone and William McCaffrey. Also included were senior vice presidents Matthew Turse and Timothy Cadigan.
“I’m honored to recognize our exceptional colleagues in Avison Young’s 2021 Circle of Excellence,” said Heller, who helped launch AY’s Morristown-based New Jersey office a decade ago. “2021 was an outstanding year for our New Jersey sales and leasing professionals, who continued to successfully navigate challenges brought on by the pandemic and geopolitical events to deliver strategic solutions to our clients.
“The considerable number of recipients from Avison Young’s New Jersey office speaks to the resilience and expertise of these professionals and I look forward to continuing to partner with them in the years ahead.”
Heller, who has 35 years of commercial real estate experience, manages Avison Young’s New Jersey team while continuing to represent a mix of corporations and institutional investors. Broad, for his part, is a New Jersey-based principal in the firm’s hospitality brokerage group, while both Ganter and Giannone largely represent occupiers and owners in the life sciences sector.
AY noted that English specializes in industrial sales and leasing, focusing exclusively on tenant representation and occupier solutions. McCaffrey, meantime, mainly represents clients in buying and seller corporate facilities as well as in agency representation.
Turse and Cadigan are both senior vice presidents, focusing on sales, leasing and consultation tied to industrial, office and commercial properties for both tenants and landlords in northern New Jersey. Cadigan also has a strong focus on the industrial sector, AY said.
