Remaining Independent in a Sea of Consolidation

We recently celebrated NAI James E Hanson’s 60th anniversary as New Jersey’s leading independent full-service commercial real estate firm. Over those past six decades a lot has changed in our industry but our values of honesty, integrity and accountability have not. It has always been our mission to amass a roster of the industry’s top commercial real estate professionals, dedicated to providing our clients with unrivaled service and innovative solutions.

These talented professionals are at the core of our business and our success. We’ve proudly operated independently since my grandfather founded the company in 1955. To stay competitive within the global marketplace, we were one of the first commercial real estate service firms to join the NAI Global network, which allowed our company to service our clients’ needs both nationally and globally, while remaining independent. In 1993 I assumed the leadership position of NAI Hanson and remain committed to growing and enhancing our services to provide the highest quality client service, while most companies are consolidating them.

Over the past few years I’ve watched as mergers and consolidations swept through our industry creating large conglomerates. This will be a trend that we’ll continue to see within the marketplace, but it is one that NAI James E. Hanson will not subscribe to. While NAI Hanson will continue to grow we will remain agile to respond to client needs and provide superior customer service that has become a cornerstone of our business for decades.

Our entrepreneurial spirit and culture has been a driving factor in our success for decades. We’ve adopted new technologies ahead of our publicly owned competitors to better serve our clients while our knowledge of the local, regional, national and global marketplaces has earned us an authority position within the industry.

Our diverse offerings and expertise in brokerage services, corporate and government services, property management, logistics, tenant representation, property valuations, investment and financing enables us to recognize opportunities quickly and help our clients take advantage of them. Through the expansion of our services we have fostered a culture of responsiveness, creativity and collaboration.

What has and always will differentiate us from the competition and this new wave of mega-companies is our agility and highly personalized approach which is ingrained in superior client service and most importantly our talented, dedicated team of experts.
Through this blog we hope to continue sharing insights and innovations from our specialist on a diverse set of topics and trends occurring within the commercial real estate marketplace to help you stay informed, adaptive and agile as you navigate the Sea of Consolidation.
