Orlando, March 21, 2023 JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has formed a unified Central Florida Multi-Housing Investment Sales and Advisory team in order to maximize efforts across the market. Directors Ted Taylor and Kyle Butler have joined the Orlando office, expanding the Central Florida multi-housing investment sales team and working alongside both the team lead, Managing Director Zach Nolan, as well as Director Drew Jennewein based in Tampa. Taylor and Butler join a robust team of 11 multi-housing investment sales, debt and equity specialists in Central Florida.

“I am very excited to have Ted and Kyle join us in the Central Florida Markets of Tampa, Orlando and Jacksonville, which make up the #1 multi-housing transaction market in the US. I have had the pleasure of working closely with Ted when he was in South Florida and Kyle when he worked in the Chicago markets,” said Matthew Lawton, Executive Managing Director and Investment Advisory Platform Leader with JLL Capital Markets.

Prior to moving to Orlando, Taylor served as Director with the Miami multi-housing and land investment sales team, which was ranked as a top team within Miami-Dade County in 2022. Over the past 24 months, Taylor and the team executed on roughly $1.5 billion in multi-housing transactions, including the marquee sales of Midtown 29 and Strata Wynwood. Butler previously served as Director with the Chicago multi-housing team, where he was instrumental in growing the team’s private capital segment of the business in the Midwest. Butler helped the team earn top market share positions in the Chicago and Milwaukee MSAs in 2022.

Senior Managing Directors Melissa Quinn and Lee Weaver, the Central Florida office heads for JLL Capital Markets, specialize in debt and equity placement for multi-housing and have approximately two decades of experience in the market. Both Quinn and Weaver together will directly support the Central Florida Investment Sales Team, allowing clients to receive the full suite of capital markets solutions.

“We are thrilled to welcome Ted and Kyle to the team,” said Quinn. “Having both been with JLL for several years, we already are confident they are a perfect cultural fit. Their collaborative approach, skill set and tremendous track record for client service dovetails seamlessly with our team.”

The unified team has formed to amplify JLL’s presence in a high-demand market for expansive capital solutions in the multi-housing sector. According to Real Capital Analytics (RCA), Central Florida (Tampa, Orlando and Jacksonville) has emerged as one of the highest traded multi-housing markets in the nation with $14.7 billion volume in 2022.

“Ted and I are thrilled to be fueling the growth of our national JLL multi-housing platform in one of the largest and highly traded markets in the country. We look forward to enabling the platform to better serve our existing and future clients,” said Butler.

Additionally, the team has plans to expand further into North Florida markets, including Jacksonville, Tallahassee and Gainesville.
