Boston, Mass. — September 8, 2014 — Sperry Van Ness International Corporation (SVNIC), a commercial real estate services franchisor, is proud to announce the addition of its newest franchise office, Sperry Van Ness/Graham, Langlois & Legendre, LLC in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Led by Managing Directors Ben Graham and Justin Langlois and Managing Broker Steve Legendre, the organization will focus on full-service commercial real estate brokerage, sales, consulting and property management services in Baton Rouge, LA and surrounding areas.
Graham, Langlois and Legendre, all CCIM members, bring more than 50-years of experience in the real estate industry to the Sperry Van Ness (SVN) organization. They have assembled a team of top Advisors who specialize in many areas including national and local tenant representation, retail, office, industrial, vacant land, investment grade sales, property management as well as build-to-suit projects and real estate consulting. The team at Sperry Van Ness/Graham, Langlois & Legendre, LLC is now looking to use SVNIC’s award-winning CRE technologies and national platform to become a recognized leader in the area’s highly competitive brokerage industry.
“We partnered with Sperry Van Ness International Corporation because it will give us a nationwide presence and provide referrals from sources we may not have gotten otherwise. The company will give us a national reach, coupled with local expertise," says Managing Director Justin Langlois. "It was the right time to make a move because the market is beginning to expand and we wanted to take advantage of that. The software that SVN provides is agent focused. The ease at which it does the mundane task of paperwork, allows the agent to do what they are supposed to do, which is get out and sell."
SVNIC is the only commercial real estate firm that markets all of its properties nationally to a 100,000-member brokerage and investment community. Producing $8.1 billion in sales and leasing transactions in 2013, SVNIC shared commission fees with co-operating brokers approximately 80 percent of those transactions. Working with its own competitors to bring the highest bidder to the table allows SVN Advisors to see gains from closing more deals in less time. Advisors also reap the benefits of the SVNIC cloud-based enterprise system that enables easy, on-the-go access to property listings and client contacts; real-time data sharing; and software that allows for the assembly of professional proposals and marketing materials.
