SAN FRANCISCO, March 2, 2022JLL Capital Markets announced today that Ryan Wagner, Matt Kroger and Brandon Geraldo have joined the firm’s San Francisco office as Senior Managing Directors, focusing on multi-housing investment advisory transactions in the San Francisco Bay Area, Northern California and Northern Nevada.

The new team joins JLL at a time where there is a growing demand for multi-housing assets within the Bay Area. According to JLL Research, the region continues to be a dynamic employment market with major growth industries, including big technology, financial services, life sciences and healthcare. That, combined with the region remaining a top destination for new graduates, has led to an expanding renter pool and supply deficit.

The team will report to Senior Managing Directors Charles Halladay and Rob Hielscher.

“We continue to pursue best in class individuals to grow our multi-housing business across the country,” said Halladay. “We are thrilled to have Ryan, Matt and Brandon lead our multi-housing business in San Francisco and provide unparalleled service and product to our clients.”

Wagner, Kroger and Geraldo have a combined 47 years of commercial real estate experience that includes the acquisition and disposition of multi-housing assets and development sites throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, Northern California and Northern Nevada. They were all previously executive vice presidents with another leading commercial real estate firm in San Francisco. In their new roles, they will oversee JLL’s multi-housing investment advisory business throughout the region, including institutional, middle-market and private-capital transactions.

Wagner, Kroger and Geraldo have executed dispositions throughout the greater Bay Area with a combined aggregate dollar amount of over $4.8 billion dollars, representing over 9,500 units of existing multi-housing assets, nearly 20,000 units of development site sales and nearly 10 million square feet of commercial asset and development site sales.

“We are extremely excited to join the JLL platform and confident that it will amplify our efforts to provide market-leading advisory services to our regional and national clients.” said Wagner. "The connectivity of service lines and business verticals within JLL is unmatched in the industry, and we are honored to join such an exceptional company.”
