Current responsibilities

Since June of 2009 Ms. Harmon is a Vice President on Jones Lang LaSalle’s suburban leasing team. Her primary focus is agency leasing for Arden Realty, Inc. in the East-West Corridor.

Prior to joining Jones Lang LaSalle Karla was a Senior Leasing Director for CityGate Centre (CGC) in Naperville, which is owned by Calamos Real Estate. CGC is a mixed-use, Class A development that came on-line in late 2007. The 211,000 s.f. office building and the 54,000 s.f. retail component are both over 50% leased. Rental rates achieved by both of these products have set new highs for the western suburban market place during a challenging market.

Prior to that, Karla was a Leasing Representative with Equity Office Properties in Chicago from 2000 to 2007. She was part of the team responsible for the overall leasing and marketing of the East-West Corridor portfolio, which consisted of 2.9 million s.f. of Class A office space. During 2006, she completed 42 new and renewal lease transactions totaling 290,500 s.f. Property rental rates increased by 9% during this time.
