Opportunity Exists Everywhere

Our previous whitepaper made the case for commercial real estate broker cooperation from a market logic point of view. In this follow up, we consider how full broker cooperation is essential for brokers and their clients to unlock the opportunities that exist in the CRE market today. Specifically, we look at the rise of non-primary real estate markets in the US; the changing of the guard in terms of who is investing in CRE today (hint: it’s not the usual suspects); and finally, unlocking opportunity in CRE wherever we find ourselves in economic cycles. It all comes down to creating an efficient, optimized market, and the last three-plus decades have shown us that broker cooperation is key to this.

In this new whitepaper, we start exploring the potential opportunities that cooperation unlocks, specifically looking at three big trends taking place today:

  • The growth of secondary and tertiary markets
  • The rise in new entrants into the CRE market
  • Unpredictable and changeable economic cycles

This whitepaper is SVN International Corp’s President and CEO, Kevin Maggiacomo’s last piece before his death in 2022. Thank you to Solomon Poretsky, SVN Chief Development Officer, and Cameron Williams, SVN Director of Research and Sales Operations, for their contributions.


SVN | Desert Commercial Advisors Closes On $70M Sale of 270 Acres in Mesa, AZ

Boston, MA, Oct 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SVN | Desert Commercial Advisors represented Shopoff Realty Investments, in the acquisition of 269.6 acres of land located at E. Elliott and S. Sossaman Road. Situated in the City of Mesa boundaries, in what is considered unincorporated Maricopa County, plans for the purchase include annexing the site into the City.

As reported in Shopoff’s release; “This property is located in a burgeoning employment hub with increasing demand for manufacturing space,” said William Shopoff, the firm’s president and CEO, in a statement. “We plan to work closely with the city to annex the property into the city of Mesa, and subsequently entitle the property for manufacturing use, in order to meet market demands.”

Previously a dairy farm, Arizona Dairy Co. completed its final disposition in the immediate area with this sale. General Manager Justin Stewart reports that other parts of its agricultural land have been sold over the years, including the sale to Google of 186 acres located at the NWC of Elliot and Sossaman in 2019.

Shopoff has proposed potential plans for the development of “The Block On Elliot,” a premier manufacturing, technology, and employment park. The park could include up to fifteen buildings, at an average size of 500,000 square feet and up to 4.1 million leasable square feet. The 269.9 acres are positioned within the Elliot Road Technology Corridor. Deemed by the City of Mesa as, “A Smart Location for High-Tech Manufacturing and Technology Companies.” Mesa Economic Development Director Bill Jabjiniak comments, “With the success, we’ve had in the formal part of the Elliot Road Technology Corridor, it sort of makes sense with Google on the northwest corner to continue the theme and focus of technology all along Elliot Road.”

Dylan Sproul and Paul Borgesen of SVN Desert Commercial Advisors negotiated the transaction on behalf of the buyer, Shopoff Realty Investments. Dylan Sproul stated, “It was a pleasure working with Shopoff Realty on this transaction. Given the complexity of taking an active dairy operation to a fully demolished and environmentally clean site in the span of 8 months, in addition to funding this deal in a tumultuous capital market environment, is a true testament to their innovative and nimble approach. Shopoff now owns the largest development-ready industrial park in the entire Southeast Valley. We are very excited to see the economic growth this development brings to the City of Mesa and the Mesa-Gateway Airport.”

The proposed “Block On Elliot” development sits just North of Sossaman Park 202. Among the first major ground-up developments around Sossaman and Warner Roads, with the help of Paul Borgesen and Dylan Sproul, the 112 acres of land was acquired by California firm Contour in December 2021. Phase 1 of the 1.55-million-square-foot industrial development broke ground in September 2022. Alongside Google’s Project Red Hawk, Facebook’s $800 million Meta Mesa Data Center, Apple’s Global Command Center, EdgeCore Data Center, and many more high-tech companies, these planned developments serve as a catalyst for future growth in the Mesa-Gateway area.

BOSTON, MA – (August 22, 2022) – It is with deep sadness that we confirm the passing of SVN International Corporation’s longtime and beloved President and CEO, Kevin Maggiacomo (50). 

Kevin passed away peacefully in his sleep over this past weekend. A charismatic and truly admirable leader, Kevin embodied the values and culture that SVN® is known for, and his loss will be felt deeply throughout the SVN community. He is survived by his wife and five children.

During his tenure leading various facets of the organization, he propelled SVN’s expansion across the globe, facilitating our growth from 7 US offices in 2001 to more than 200 offices in 8 countries today.

Time’s up for non-cooperation in CRE

The clock is ticking on what is a systemic issue in commercial real estate investment sales: Non-cooperation and misaligned incentives create a loophole where brokers’ interests take precedence over sellers’ interests, resulting in an environment where most sellers are selling for less than fair market value. This model and way of doing business means that money is being left on the table by brokers and, more importantly, their clients.

In this white paper, we argue that:

• Today’s typical way of selling CRE assets is illogical and driven by misaligned incentive structures instead of sound economic principles
• The CRE industry urgently needs to embrace cooperation to drive shared value in the future
• Cooperating proactively with the brokerage community is the most effective way to increase demand for CRE assets on the market

Savvy brokers have the chance to embrace efficient, modern, and informed ways of working to achieve the best price and the best terms for their clients. We should know — SVN has been working like this for over 36 years.

Dean Saunders Named Highest-Producing Land Broker in the Nation for 2020 Performance

APEX Top National Producer Awarded by NAR’s Realtors Land Institute (RLI) for Saunders’ Transactions Totaling More Than $126 Million Last Year

LAKELAND, FL, March 29, 2021 – Dean Saunders, ALC, CCIM, founder, managing director & senior advisor of SVN | Saunders Ralston Dantzler in Lakeland, FL, received the REALTORS Land Institute (RLI) APEX Awards program’s most coveted and prestigious award, the APEX 2020 Top National Producer.

The award recognizes the applicant with the highest overall qualifying transaction volume across the nation. This is the second time Saunders earned the top honor among national land brokers, winning the award in 2018. The awards program is four years old.

The APEX Awards Program administrators reviewed 2020 sales by RLI-affiliated land agents totaling a combined $3.5 billion in qualifying transaction volume from 140 applicants. Saunders earned the honors based on transactions totaling more than $126 million in 2020.

Saunders was also recognized as an APEX 2020 Top 20 Producer. He received awards from RLI CEO Aubrie Kobernus, MBA, RCE, as well as The Land Report’s Co-founder Eric O’Keefe on Wednesday, March 17, during RLI’s 2021 Virtual National Land Conference.

“We are proud of Dean and all of our members that were recognized for their accomplishments in 2020,” Kobernus said. “They truly are the crème of the crop when it comes to land real estate professionals.”

Saunders was also recently received other professional recognitions, including:

  • For performance in 2020, he was the #2 advisor in SVN® among 1,620 advisors and #1 advisor in Florida among 198 advisors, earning the SVN® Partners Circle award.
  • Dean received the 2020 National Association of Realtors (NAR) National Commercial Award for exceptional service and contributions to the industry.
  • In 2020, Dean was named to the Florida Trend Florida 500 list for the second year in a row.

Saunders brokers $43 million Bluffs land deal

SVN | Saunders Ralston Dantzler Real Estate founder negotiated Florida’s largest conservation property purchase in more than a decade.

Dean Saunders, the managing director and founder of Lakeland-based SVN | Saunders Ralston Dantzler Real Estate, last month negotiated the state’s largest purchase of conservation land in more than a decade.

Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection acquired the Bluffs of St. Teresa property for $43 million. The 17,080-acre tract on the Gulf of Mexico, in the state’s Panhandle, features 17 miles of waterfront land and borders the state-owned Bald Point State Park and Tate’s Hell State Forest.

The property also represents one of the largest tracts of undeveloped land in Florida on the Gulf Coast.

As part of the purchase, The Nature Conservancy chipped in $2.25 million and the U.S. Department of Defense, which operates several Air Force bases in the region, contributed $2.19 million.

For the state, the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and Gov. Ron DeSantis’ former deputy chief of staff played key roles, Saunders notes.

“This was a rare opportunity to preserve an absolute gem of a property for posterity for the citizens of Florida,” says Saunders, who was a top aide to former Florida Gov. Lawton Chiles and also served in the Florida House of Representatives from 1992 until 1996.

“The state owns the land on either side of this tract, which is also known as St. James Island, so it just made sense for them to buy this piece, as well.”

Saunders represented Ochlockonee Timberlands LLC, an affiliate of Salt Lake City-based AgReserves, in the transaction. AgReserves is a for-profit arm of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which is more commonly known as the Mormon Church.

AgReserves affiliates acquired a total of 382,000 acres in the panhandle — including the Bluffs of St. Teresa —in early 2014 from The St. Joe Co. for $565 million, according to reports at the time. The land is spread across eight Florida counties.

Florida’s DEP notes in a statement that the “milestone” purchase provides “benefits to climate resilience,” preserves rivers and lakes that are “critical to water quality, quantity and the health of the region’s aquaculture” and safeguards animals’ habitat.

The Bluffs’ deal isn’t the only conservation-rated deal that Saunders, who has been recognized as one of the top land brokers nationwide by the Realtors Land Institute, has done of late. In Polk County, in the 560,000-acre Green Swamp area, he negotiated a conservation easement for 713 acres known as AVT Ranch for $1.1 million.

Since its formation in 1996, Saunders Ralston Dantzler has completed transactions valued in excess of $3 billion.
