Heath D. Bullock and Marcus R. Pitts honored for transaction in the Central Business District

DES MOINES, May 24, 2016 - JLL today announced that Heath D. Bullock and Marcus R. Pitts were recognized for the second year in a row by the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors’ (SIOR) Top 100 Office Transactions List.  The list was announced last month during the 2016 Spring World Conference in San Diego.

Last month, Bullock and Pitts were recognized for the negotiation of a 70,236-square-foot office lease on behalf of Raun, Incorporated at Two Ruan Building, located at 601 Locust Street, Des Moines. The transaction ranked 89 on the list, and was tracked as the largest office transaction in Des Moines’ Central Business District in 2015.   In 2014 the JLL Des Moines market posted a large office transaction that placed in the top 50 leases within SIOR.

Additionally, the two ranked among nearly 580 SIOR members who reported more than 930 transactions, totaling more than $5.1 billion in leases and sales.

“It is truly an honor for us to be recognized by our SIOR peers, who are some of the most active real estate professionals in the office and industrial sectors,” said JLL Senior Vice President and Iowa Markets Leader Heath D. Bullock.  “The Des Moines metropolitan area and the State of Iowa are always well represented within the SIOR contingency.  We are very fortunate to be in a strong and stable real estate market that is recognized across the country for its quality workforce and favorable business environment.”
