LOS ANGELES, Sept.14, 2023 – JLL’s Value and Risk Advisory platform announced today that it has hired Ken Wood as a Director in its Los Angeles office. Wood will work with Kai Pan, who leads the national multi-housing practice for the group, and Aaron DeCollibus, who leads the West Coast multi-housing team, and will focus on multi-housing value and risk advisory assignments for institutional clients throughout California, Nevada and the Western U.S.

Wood joins JLL from Apprise by Walker & Dunlop, where he was a Senior Director focused on multi-housing and affordable housing developments. Over the course of his nearly 20-year valuation career, he has appraised a diverse selection of asset classes, including multi-housing, retail, office and industrial, as well as specialized assets such as affordable, seniors and student housing; gaming and hospitality; life sciences and data centers.

“We’re really excited to add Ken to our platform. He has a deep background across many asset classes and in particular on the multi-housing side, where we continue to see increased client inquiries on the value of their assets and the potential risks associated with rising insurance costs, natural disasters and more,” said Mike Ellis, CEO of JLL’s Value and Risk Advisory platform.

Wood graduated from the University of California, Davis with a Bachelor of Arts degree. He is a certified General Real Estate Appraiser in California and Nevada and is a candidate for Designation of the Appraisal Institute.

“Ken is an accomplished appraiser with a wide range of experience from the banking industry to institutional investors,” added Pan. “We look forward to having Ken’s expertise in advising our clients on the value and risk of their portfolio as we continue to build out our team with a property sector-led approach. The property sector-led approach allows our team to narrow their focus and truly specialize in each unique property type’s needs at the moment, which is paramount in the current economic climate.”
