One of San Antonio’s best-known industrial commercial real estate brokers comes to NAI Partners from namesake firm, Colglazier Properties
San Antonio, TX, April 26, 2021 – NAI Partners today announced that veteran industrial broker John Colglazier, Jr.—one of the best-known and most successful industrial sales professionals in San Antonio real estate—has joined the company as a Partner.
“John is an outstanding addition to our firm, as his namesake company, Colglazier Properties, has long established itself as among the most highly-regarded of San Antonio industrial real estate brokerages,” said Jon Silberman, Managing Partner of NAI Partners. “Colglazier Properties was founded in 1986, and—like our organization—cemented its reputation on a proven, decades-long track record of consistently delivering the best possible results for its clients. John has deep experience marketing the gamut of industrial product types at the local, regional, and national level, and we’re excited to further enhance the solutions we deliver for our clients with his industry-leading knowledge and expertise.”
“NAI Partners just made all the sense in the world, from the synergy created by collaborating with like-minded people doing the same kind of work; to offering the strengths of a global real estate company with the entrepreneurial feel of a homegrown shop; to having one of the best support teams in the business to bring projects across the finish line—there is truly no shortage of best-in-class professionals seamlessly collaborating as they work toward the company’s shared goals,” said Mr. Colglazier. “I haven’t been lacking in opportunities, but as I continued to talk with NAI Partners it became increasingly clear that this was a perfect fit to even further improve service to my clients.”
“We are excited to add a broker and leader of John’s caliber to our company at the Partner level,” said Travis Rodgers, Partner & COO of NAI Partners. “John will of course further augment our already-robust Industrial Services business in San Antonio, joining Carlos Marquez as our second Partner in that office.”
Added Mr. Rodgers, “As important as his brokerage career achievements are, just as imperative is the client-focused way in which he conducts his business; alongside the professional, courteous, and collaborative nature he displays while working with his colleagues—a long way of saying John’s a great fit for us culturally as well.”
John Colglazier joined Colglazier Properties in 1996 and has specialized in the sale and leasing of all types of industrial, manufacturing and distribution products. Among his accolades include being honored by the San Antonio Business Journal for completing the Largest Industrial Lease of 2004 for his representation of Valero Energy Corp to open its first self-distribution facility; initiation into SIOR on its “fast track” program by exceeding sales volume requirements; representing Maruchan, Inc. in that company’s site acquisition and development for a San Antonio plant; and another recognition by the San Antonio Business Journal for Best Industrial Deal of 2013 for his role in the development of Southton Rail Yard; among other accomplishments. For his career, Mr. Colglazier has completed sale/lease transactions in excess of $500 million in total volume.
In some regards, Mr. Colglazier coming to NAI Partners brings his storied career full-circle, as Colglazier Properties was previously one of two San Antonio-based NAI member firms several years prior to NAI Partners taking on that affiliation in the Alamo City.
Also joining Mr. Colglazier at NAI Partners San Antonio is Kyle Kennan, Associate, who had been at Colglazier for the last two-and-half years. Prior to that, Mr. Kennan worked as an advisor to Northwest Commercial Lending, a commercial mortgage broker based out of Seattle.
