Brent joined JLL in 2014 and is responsible for the marketing and leasing of office properties in the Austin, Texas market, providing strategic leasing initiatives for regional and institutional landlords and developers.

Brent began his career in 2007 at Cushman & Wakefield.  His role as Research Director gave him a comprehensive understanding of the Austin commercial real estate market.  He made the transition to office agency leasing in 2008.  Despite a slow real estate market, Brent quickly added Class A and B office product to his portfolio and developed strong client relationships. In 2014, Brent was hired by Jones Lang LaSalle to help build their Austin office leasing team.  Brent was awarded the JLL Extra Mile Award for 2019; one of only four awarded nationally. On behalf of JLL, Brent currently represents approximately 6 million square feet of office product in the Austin area.
