The company said that, since joining NAI Hanson in winter 2017, Alessio has worked on a team with Andrew Somple and Jessica Curry, specializing in industrial and office leasing, sales and investments within northern New Jersey and the tristate area. The Rutgers University graduate, who holds a Masters in Commercial Property designation, has since completed 12 sales and 35 leases totaling more than 1 million square feet, with a combined value exceeding $100 million.
Ericksen joined NAI Hanson in 2019 and has become a specialist in the purchase and sale of industrial and office facilities, according to a news release. Working alongside the team of Scott Perkins and Christopher Todd, he provides brokerage and advisory services to investors, international organizations and institutional clients.
Also a Rutgers graduate, Ericksen has participated in the completion of 20 transactions spanning more than 758,000 square feet, including six sales and 14 leases, with a total value of more than $135 million.
Kirshenbaum, meantime, joined the firm in 2015 and has specialized in the medical office and industrial sectors, the news release said. He has completed 25 leases and 12 sales totaling 430,000 square feet, with a combined value of more than $46 million.
A graduate of Ithaca College, Kirshenbaum is a member of multiple professional organizations, including the Industrial Office Real Estate Brokers Association and the Morris County Economic Development Corp., among others.
“It takes unique characteristics for a broker to make their mark in New Jersey’s ultracompetitive commercial real estate market,” said William C. Hanson, president of NAI Hanson. “Justin, Will and Andrew have all made exceptional strides throughout their time at the firm and it’s because of their continued effort on a daily basis, dedication to serving their client’s specific needs and commitment to those within this firm that they’re progressing onto the next phase of their careers. We’re so very proud of their progress and expect great things for all three moving forward.”
