Boston, Mass.Sperry Van Ness International Corporation (SVNIC), a full-service commercial real estate franchisor of the SVN® brand, announces the addition of its newest franchise office, SVN ǀ Tamarack in Austin, Texas.

Commercial real estate investors and companies in greater Austin face a challenging market. The area is going through a period of tremendous population growth and job growth of almost 4 percent in 2015, which creates demand for office space. Despite the ongoing construction and addition of new office space throughout the metro area, occupancy rates for top-tier office space is hovering around 91 percent, making it difficult to find available properties. In addition, rent for office space is also increasing. In this highly competitive market, finding the right property, selling a building at the highest price, finding the proper funding, and negotiating deals for maximum advantage requires professional support.

SVN ǀ Tamarack is uniquely positioned to help investors and sellers achieve maximum value in every type of real estate transaction within the Austin market with a combination of local expertise and the national reach of SVN. The company brings a business owner’s and principal investor’s perspective to helping companies and investors realize the profitability of commercial real estate properties. 

“My experience gives me a distinctive opportunity for clients in that I’ve been in their shoes,” says Misch, Founder and Managing Director of SVN|Tamarack. “As a company founder, I’ve raised capital for my mezzanine debt investment fund and I know what it takes to start and run a company, and I understand how real estate impacts the bottom line. I have had a dual perspective as a recipient of investment funds from outside investors, and as an investor in companies; helping major institutions make tough decisions on their real estate.  The professionalism, high level of expertise, values, and culture of SVN are what attracted me to the company. Its core business offerings are a great fit with my experience in analyzing commercial real estate and corporate cash flows, structuring investments, strategic planning, and running companies in ways that ensure investments and institutions succeed.”
