EverWest Real Estate Investors has hired an industry veteran as its director of property management in New York and New Jersey, citing its continued growth in the region.
In his new role, David Jarvis will oversee the firm’s newly opened regional property management office in Woodcliff Lake, supporting a portfolio of more than 1.5 million square feet of existing space and planned development. He’ll also provide oversight and support for an additional 1.1 million square feet across seven area investment properties managed by a third-party provider.
Jarvis joins Denver-based EverWest from the former Duke Realty Corp., where he oversaw a large industrial portfolio with a combined gross asset value of $4.8 billion.
“Our goal is to self-manage our properties whenever possible,” EverWest Senior Managing Director and Head of Property Management Mike Gagne said. “As a real estate investment firm, having our own property management professionals creates a wonderful alignment with our local asset management and acquisitions teams. This vertically integrated approach creates the best possible outcomes for our investors, and we are pleased to welcome Dave into that collaboration.”
EverWest has acquired or initiated much of its portfolio in the region within the last 24 months, according to a news release. Jarvis joins a national property management division that also includes offices in Colorado, Houston, Los Angeles and San Francisco, overseeing a combined 8.8 million square feet.
He has also held positions with Digital Realty, CBRE and The Hampshire Cos., the news release said. Across his career, Jarvis has developed extensive experience in property management, due diligence and property onboarding, leasing, tenant relations and construction management.
A licensed real estate salesperson, he holds a bachelor’s in mechanical engineering from the University of Connecticut and a master’s in manufacturing engineering from Boston University.
