JLL has bolstered its New Jersey capital markets team in the region with the addition of Jeremy Neuer, a prominent broker in the state and an expert in the office sector.
Neuer, an industry veteran of more than 20 years, joins the Morristown-based team as a senior managing director and will focus on office investment sales advisory transactions in New Jersey and the tristate area. He most recently was an executive vice president with CBRE and co-leader of its New Jersey capital markets group, a role he held for five years after nearly two decades as a leasing broker.
“We are thrilled to have one of the tristate areas most active and respected advisers on our team,” said Jose Cruz, a senior managing director with JLL and co-head of its New Jersey capital markets team said. “Jeremy’s market knowledge, drive and creative dealmaking skills will serve to help our clients on multiple levels.”
In announcing the hire, JLL said Neuer closed some of the largest and most prestigious suburban office sales in New Jersey in 2018, 2019 and 2020. That includes the $311 million trade of the six-building, 1.19 million-square-foot Park Avenue at Florham Park office complex, which was the largest suburban deal in New Jersey since 2008.
JLL also pointed to the prior 18 years that Neuer spent as a leasing broker, which provided him with a unique perspective on what modern occupiers want for their office and workplace needs.
“Jose and I have known each other for more than 20 years and I am both extremely excited and honored to be joining the premier team in the market,” Neuer said. “The depth of the team, the platform and, most importantly, the culture in place were major drivers in my decision to join JLL.”
