Boston, Mass. — June 24, 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/Percival Partners, LLC in Charlotte, North Carolina. Led by Managing Directors Joey Godbold and Bob Percival, the organization will focus on full service commercial real estate brokerage, disposition/acquisition, leasing and property investment services in Charlotte and surrounding areas.
Godbold and Percival bring an extensive 35-year background in the commercial-investment real estate industry. Joining Sperry Van Ness® represents the next phase of growth and client service for SVN/Percival Partners, LLC, a mainstay of the Charlotte market that was founded in 1961 by Percival’s father and mother. As Managing Director and CEO, Godbold leads a team of top Advisors who continue to drive business through a progressive and sophisticated client-focused business model designed to respond to the client’s interests including commercial and investment sales, leasing and property management. Percival continues to provide leadership as Managing Director and company Chairman. The team at Sperry Van Ness/Percival Partners, LLC now adopts the revolutionary SVNIC compensated cooperation platform and advanced technologies to become a recognized leader in the area’s dynamic and highly competitive brokerage industry.
“We found the business model of SVNIC to be compelling,” says Managing Director and CEO Joey Godbold. “The breath of the global reach, the innovative approach to technology and research, and the training and national leadership that is available to our local Advisors through the SVN Product Councils will all greatly enhance our ability to assist both our Advisors and clients.”
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.
“We are committed to providing our clients with the most comprehensive resources available in the local market,” says Managing Director and Chairman Bob Percival. “Through the Sperry Van Ness® platform we can offer extended influence and leading edge technologies.”
