JLL Adds Retail Expertise in Seattle

Anne Marie and Erika Koehler join JLL to strengthen Puget Sound retail practice    

​SEATTLE, Nov. 10, 2014 — JLL expanded its retail brokerage practice in the Pacific Northwest with the addition in Washington of Anne Marie Koehler and Erika Koehler. The duo bring more than 25 years of retail agency leasing and tenant representation experience to the team, and will be based in the firm’s Seattle office. Together, they join Mike Horner and Ryan Jones to support the firm’s existing retail portfolio and further expand JLL’s market presence in the Puget Sound region.

“Growth in the Puget Sound economy is having a positive impact on the retail sector and we expect this trend to continue well into next year,” said Stuart Williams, Managing Director. “As a result, our landlord and retail tenant clients are seeking skilled leasing and local market insight.  Anne Marie and Erika will help our team support this increased demand as they develop and execute successful leasing strategies for both our investor and occupier clients in the market.”  

Anne Marie Koehler joins JLL as a Vice President, bringing more than 11 years experience in commercial real estate with the majority of those years focused on urban retail in Seattle and Bellevue.  She has worked on several large community and neighborhood shopping center assignments, has a keen awareness of national retail trends and requirements and has the insight and perspective necessary for understanding differing client needs and successfully closing transactions. 

Erika Koehler, who also joins JLL as a Vice President in the Seattle office, has over 14 years of experience in commercial real estate, much of it focused on urban retail and mixed-use developments in the greater Seattle area. She has a strong record of success in completing landlord listing and tenant rep engagements throughout the region and her extensive shopping center representation expertise includes an inherent understanding of Landlord viewpoints.

Anne Marie and Erika join the firm from CBRE, and both grew up in their family’s successful development and property management business, Seattle-based Koehler & Company.
