TenantBase, a tech-enabled commercial real estate brokerage, plans to expand into multiple markets with the launch of offices in Houston, Austin, Fort Worth, as well as Chicago. The Santa Monica, CA-headquartered firm now operates in nine major U.S. cities, with continued growth and technology initiatives planned for 2019.
The company has scaled up rapidly, following a mid-2018 fundraise focused on growing its technology and brokerage teams. TenantBase CEO Bennett Washabaugh (pictured above) says he anticipates having more than 100 local brokers by the end of Q1 2019, compared to 28 in 2018.
Joining the team in Texas are industry veterans Lance McCarthy in Houston, formerly with Studley and head of Mohr partners, Jon Olofson in Austin, formerly Head Global Real Estate Portfolio Manager for Entegris, and Albert Berry in Fort Worth, formerly with Keller Williams Commercial.
In Chicago, tenant rep veterans Bob Palffy and Andrew Kelly, formerly with Cresa and Transwestern respectively, will lead TenantBase’s Midwest brokerage operations.
