HOUSTON, Aug. 8, 2023 –  JLL Capital Markets announced today that Jim Humphries has joined the firm’s Single-Family Rental (SFR) team as a Director sitting in the Houston office.

Humphries will focus on SFR and build-to-rent (BTR) investment sales nationally and will work alongside the current SFR team lead Managing Director Matthew Putterman.

“Jim’s addition expands JLL Capital Markets’ capabilities at an opportune time as capital interest in the single-family rental and built-to-rent sector grows, driven by sustained rent growth and occupancy fundamentals,” said Putterman.

Humphries joins JLL from Colliers in Houston, where he has spent the past eight years. Most recently, he served as Senior Vice President and began his concentration on middle-market SFR and BTR investment sales in 2019. Prior to his career with Colliers, Humphries worked with HFF (predecessor to JLL) as part of the Houston multi-housing investment sales team.

“Joining the best-in-class platform in this sector is a tremendous opportunity to leverage existing strengths and relationships,” said Humphries. “I am thrilled to be able to capitalize on the hard work and brand equity established by this JLL team and add real value to our collective SFR and BTR clients.”
