NASHVILLE, TN (October 18, 2017) – In October 2012, Managing Directors Tom Hooper and Bo Tyler established the JLL Nashville office.  Five years later, the team boasts 37 members, eight business lines and several top workplace designations.  In 2016, JLL Nashville brokerage team negotiated $217.13 million dollars in leasing transaction value and leased just over 118 million square feet.
