JLL announced adding Bill Honsaker, Managing Director, in a relocation from the Phoenix market where he was a consistent market leader in the industrial/warehouse sector advising both users and owner/investors.

In a 35-year career including 15 years with JLL, Honsaker has worked across California, Arizona and Washington serving national and local clients. 

“I’m excited to join our team in Greater Seattle and help JLL clients through the U.S. and abroad,” said Honsaker, who also noted a desire to be closer to family in the Pacific Northwest. “JLL brings an unparalleled combination of strengths to companies across the Seattle/Bellevue metro, the 12th-largest commercial real estate market by total square feet among 66 U.S. regions.”

Honsaker has distinguished himself as a results-driven commercial real estate professional with broad-based market knowledge. He has successfully represented both users and investors in lease and sale transactions of industrial, high-tech / R&D, and office properties. His work includes consulting and strategy implementation, market research, site selection, negotiation, financial analysis, and lease or purchase contract review.

“We’re thrilled to have Bill deepen our bench strength,” said Chris Spofford, JLL Executive Managing Director and Seattle industrial lead. “Bill brings a unique background to the negotiating table having successfully marketed several million square feet of properties for both private and institutional owners, run seven national corporate real estate portfolios, and served as a commercial property manager. His experience and knowledge allow him to effectively and creatively structure competitive and aggressive transactions.”

Bill has been recognized as a consistent top performer including a Top Gun, the highest-level production honor within the company. He is a member of the Supply Chain & Logistics Solutions practice group and the Clean Technologies practice group.
