Vice President, Brokerage Services
“Life is not about people liking you, it’s about earning their respect because you did the right thing when the situation called for it. You must always take the high road even when it’s inconvenient.”
PJ Behr serves as the Vice President of Brokerage Services in the Orlando office. In the last 17 years PJ has focused on net leased investment properties, at times working alongside the Asset Management and Development teams to reposition retail properties for their highest and best use including leasing to tenants such as Walgreens, AutoZone, CVS Pharmacy, Starbucks and Cracker Barrel. He has also worked on Investment Committees for a publicly traded REIT, helping acquisition teams evaluate real estate, tenant credit, lease negotiations, and portfolio management.
Throughout his career, PJ has been involved in more than 1,250 sales transactions across 47 states with volume in excess of $1.8B. He is experienced in his field with a 10-year institutional background with a non-traded REIT that eventually went public and was later acquired by GE Capital, and has managed a 1031 investment sales team that averaged more than $250 million in sales transactions per year for 10 years. Properties acquired and disposed of during this time were leased to notable restaurant clients and other national retailers.
Recent notable assignments include large institutional sale-leasebacks for industrial and retail clients, as well as buyer representation for a 16-unit master lease portfolio, large class-A office sale (off-market), a Publix grocery anchored center, and government leased properties.
