The holding company of Partners Capital and NAI Partners storms out of the gate with a record-setting first quarter while continuing to attract the industry’s top talent

Partners Real Estate Company (“Partners”), a top 4 largest privately held and independently owned commercial real estate firm in the state of Texas—and the holding company of real estate investment and development platform Partners Capital and commercial real estate services firm NAI Partners—has stormed out of the gate in 2022 with a record-breaking performance on the heels of a 2021 campaign where it shattered its previous all-time revenue high.

But just as importantly, the company—which ranked as the top commercial real estate workplace in the Houston Chronicle’s annual Top Workplaces survey, jumping more spots than every other firm on the list—continues to augment and evolve the intangibles that have made Partners Capital and NAI Partners among the most attractive employers in the business.

To that end, a laser focus on company culture has been an intrinsic component of Partners’ “secret sauce” that has contributed to the organization’s continued success. Placing deep importance on its Core Values of Clients First, Excellence & Integrity, Entrepreneurial Passion, Accountability, and Positive Collaboration—to the extent that it funnels all of its important decision-making processes through these lenses—helps ensure camaraderie and consistency across all of its business lines and geographies as its professionals come to work every day striving toward the same shared goals.

This in turn has led to staggering personnel growth, with the company adding to its headcount by a whopping 25% during the past six months.

“This is, without a doubt, the most impressive collection of talent our company has ever assembled,” said Larry Koestler, Executive Vice President of Marketing & Operations for Partners. “We are fortunate to have our exceptional group delivering client service excellence week in and week out. It’s not a coincidence we had our best year ever last year, and are already tracking toward another robust performance in 2022—truly a testament to our broker & client support and shared services professionals, each of whom continually raise the bar every day.”

In addition to regular employee recognition through monthly companywide announcements and quarterly top performer awards, Partners also recently acknowledged the staff members that returned to the office in 2020 during a time of great uncertainty with a unique financial reward.

“Our staff went home to work remote in March 2020, not really sure what would happen,” said Travis Rodgers, Partner and Chief Operating Officer, Partners. “We stayed connected throughout that time before returning fully in early May. This awesome group laid the groundwork for continued and improved service to our clients and investors that year, propelling us forward as we grew and added even more new faces over the next two years. In a time of uncertainty when our friends and families were working remotely, this team was here and fully engaged and genuinely made a difference. They also respected each others’ space and avoided any outbreaks as we collaborated together! With all of that in mind, we were thrilled to be able to thank our ‘May 2020’ veteran employees with a special incentive for their incredible partnership during a very uncertain time.”

“Employee recognition is a huge part of our company culture, especially considering that Partners Capital and NAI Partners professionals not only perform their essential business functions flawlessly, but do so while proudly wearing many different hats, from creating stunning graphical deliverables in service of winning pitches, to business development, to transaction support, and on down the line,” said Kelli Walter, Senior Vice President of Asset Management, Partners Capital. “They are also ambassadors of our company culture, with our Core Values of Clients First, Excellence & Integrity, Entrepreneurial Passion, Accountability, and Positive Collaboration synthesized within their best-in-class projects and embodied throughout their interactions with their colleagues.”

Partners Capital recently tapped real estate veteran Carter Perrin, who joined the company as its 22nd Partners, as Partner and Managing Director of Development. Partners Capital is Partners’ investment management platform specializing in the acquisition and disposition of office, industrial, and retail multitenant properties via multiple investment funds and the development of retail, industrial, office, and mixed-use projects. Mr. Perrin brings an extensive pedigree to the organization, elevating the breadth and depth of the development platform while further enhancing the wealth-building opportunities it can offer its investor clients.

Partners Capital’s major Q1 transactions included the divestment of Clear Lake Business Center, a 149,305-sq.-ft. flex park in Webster, TX, which it originally acquired in February 2019 through its Fund II investment vehicle.

The continued success of Partners Capital and NAI Partners has compelled the holding company to recently lease an additional 4,000 sq. ft. of space at its Houston headquarters location at 1360 Post Oak Blvd.

“The focus we place on our clients’ interests and needs is always at the forefront of our minds,” added Mr. Rodgers. “Ensuring our team members have the space and resources they need to strive for excellence and integrity in everything they do is a critical part of who we are as a company.”

“The arc of our company’s growth over the last several years—more than doubling in size—has been staggering, and we’ve barely scratched the surface,” added Mr. Koestler. “And it isn’t just growth for growth’s sake—our strategic plan is thoughtful and deliberate and requires an exceptionally talented group of people to successfully execute on. We’re thrilled to be able to do the best work we can on behalf of our clients every single day and conducting our business within world-class office space further elevates our level of service delivery.”

Other recent organization-wide accolades include Partners rising to become the 3rd-Largest Commercial Real Estate Brokerage firm in San Antonio—a location where it added two new Partners last year, veteran industrial leasing broker John Colglazier, Jr., and office leasing expert Lindsey Tucker from CBRE. And that growth wasn’t just limited to San Antonio, as the company’s office in the Texas Capital expanded to become a Top 20 Largest Commercial Real Estate Brokerage firm in Austin.

Partners only continues to grow, and is seeking the industry’s top talent for a wide range of current openings:
