SVNIC® Is Deeply Saddened By The Sudden Passing of President & Chief Executive Officer, Kevin Maggiacomo

SVN International Corporation announces the sudden passing of President & CEO, Kevin Maggiacomo.

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. 

“Kevin exemplified the values of SVN, and we are so proud of the culture that he nurtured in the SVN family. I know that as a community, we will come together to support one another in honoring Kevin, his legacy, and his vision.”

– Mark Van Ness, Founder, SVN International Corporation

Kevin joined SVNIC® in 2001 and served as Regional Director, Executive Vice President, and Chief Operating Officer before being appointed CEO in 2010. 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. Kevin played an integral part in building SVN® into one of the top 10 Commercial Real Estate service providers in the world, winning numerous awards including being named one of the Most Innovative Brokerage Firms in North America by Realcomm, named in Inc.

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.

SVN® | Capital West Partners Closes On Sale Of Silicon Valley Office Building For $16.55 Million

SVN | Capital West Partners, one of the nation’s premier investment real estate brokerage firms, has closed on the sale of Cooley Commercial Building, a 42,363 SF office building located at 1922 The Alameda in San Jose, CA. Robin Santiago, CCIM of SVN | Capital West Partners represented the seller in this transaction.

Momentum for Mental Health, the largest private nonprofit provider of adult mental health services in Santa Clara County, acquired the Cooley Commercial Building for $16.55 million. This will be a long-term hold for Momentum, who plans to occupy the building over time. The property is located near a large, notable development project proposed by Google, which consists of office, retail, and up to 4,000 new housing units. The property is also situated near downtown San Jose, which has been the center of major new developments over the last few years.

Transaction sale volume for office properties in San Jose declined by 42% in 2020, a statistic that highlights the ongoing pandemic-induced challenges the industry faces. “The property was introduced to the market during one of the most challenging periods for office investment sale transactions in recent history,” said Santiago. “Despite the challenges, we received multiple offers and ultimately chose a qualified buyer that owned other assets nearby. They were the logical choice among the various groups that pursued the property. The buyer saw the long-term value of the site and acted quickly to put the building in contract. They were excellent to work with throughout the entire transaction.”

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.

Finding Success In Commercial Real Estate: The SVN Difference

Transparency and openness have long been hallmarks of the SVN culture and business model. Embracing and fostering inclusivity drives our approach to practicing commercial real estate, which is rooted in proactively cooperating and collaborating with our colleagues, communities, and even our competitors. It is this shared vision that enables SVN to create more value for our clients — 9.6% more value, to be exact.

We recently held our quarterly “JumpIN” event, which is designed to acclimate and welcome new-to-SVN advisors to the systems, tools, resources and culture inherent in the organization. Today, we’re pulling back the curtain and inviting you in to one of our internal JumpIN training sessions. And in the open and transparent manner in which SVN operates on all fronts,  we’re giving you a closer look at how we train and develop our SVN advisors and staff.

The commercial real estate industry is rapidly growing and constantly evolving, driven by powerful, transformative trends in technology, consumer behavior, culture and more. In such a dynamic, mercurial and competitive industry, it’s critical now more than ever to build a strong point of differentiation that helps an SVN advisor stand out as the advisor of choice.

So, what makes one commercial real estate advisor stand out from another? As a CRE broker, what can you offer that your competition can’t (or won’t)? How do you become truly different? And, ultimately, how do you leverage your point of differentiation to create more value for your clients, colleagues, and communities?

These were some of the questions that led to the creation of what we call The SVN Difference.  

  One of the most profitable commitments SVN advisors can make is to become a champion of understanding and articulating all components of the SVN Difference. Just as its name implies, The SVN Difference is the strongest differentiating value proposition that SVN advisors have — it’s the sharpest tool in the toolkit.

Democratizing commercial real estate information to bring greater transparency to the marketplace is receiving an abundance of attention today – our company and the SVN Difference were built on this idea in 1987.

Our forward-thinking, innovative approach early on positioned SVN to be on the bleeding edge of technology in CRE. For 30 years we have pioneered the development of online collaboration platforms, allowing us to deliver better results for our clients. In fact, SVN was the first firm in the industry to connect our offices in the southwest via a local area network. Later, SVN developed the industry’s first online publishing platform, known today as Buildout. Today, we’ve opened up our weekly in-house sales meeting, SVN Live, to anyone who wishes to participate.

So, what does all of this mean?  

  It means that SVN was built to be future-proofed.

It means that SVN was built to deliver better results.

It means that SVN was built to last.

The commercial real estate brands with whom SVN competes are all themselves competing on size and breadth. Whether it’s the highest number of brokers, greatest number of markets served, or the most access to data — they are all issuing the same narratives. It is therefore our job as SVN advisors to effectively articulate our compelling point of difference and demonstrate what we can do that the competition cannot.

It’s important to keep in mind that the SVN business model is  rooted in openness and transparency in conjunction with a fee sharing model, which ensures that we’re putting our money where our mouths are.

Unfortunately, SVN is the exception — not the rule. But it’s our mission to change that.

It’s rare for the industry to step back and question the soundness and integrity of industry business models of which they are a part and ask, Why do things work this way?, Why do other industry brokerage models fly in the face of fundamental economics? For instance, today, more than 80% of investment sales transactions are double ended (e.g., the same broker who lists the property also finds the buyer). This happens in an environment where more than 65% of all buyers come from out of state, and more than half the buyers can be categorized as new or unlikely buyers. These buyers are not in any one broker or brokerage firm’s database.

This begs the question: Are the seller’s interests placed first, or are the broker’s (and his/her quest to earn twice the fee)?  

  Upon close inspection of the commercial real estate industry, you’ll see clear points of differentiation between SVN and its global competitors. Exemplary SVN advisors understand that the key to success is mastering these differences and leveraging them to offer clients something the competition is unwilling or unable to offer.

Models like SVN, which embrace automation, collaboration and cooperation, are uniquely positioned to take market share in this era of change, as client behaviors and expectations evolve. SVN advisors have a tremendously powerful competitive differentiating value proposition to bring to the table.

SVN advisors are part of a brand that offers something completely different from what any local, regional, or national firm is offering. This is the SVN Difference. And this difference is what ultimately creates 9.6% more value for our clients.

Now that’s a tremendously powerful competitive advantage.

SVN AFFORDABLE | LEVENTAL REALTY BROKERS SALE OF 180-UNIT AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROJECT IN ATLANTA, GA

SVN AFFORDABLE | Levental Realty has brokered the sale of City Views at Rosa Burney Park in Atlanta, GA for $25 million. The company worked on behalf of seller Reliant Development Group. The 180-unit affordable community is covered by a 154-unit Section 8 HAP contract and was rehabbed in 2002 with Low-Income Housing Tax Credits. Built in 1972, the property is comprised of a 10-story tower and 15 garden-style buildings. Situated on 7.6 acres, it is located near downtown Atlanta in the revitalizing Mechanicsville neighborhood.

SVN AFFORDABLE Managing Director Gene Levental led the transaction. “It was a privilege to represent the seller’s interest in such an important transaction given its premium location and potential to be converted to market rate housing. The seller wanted assurance that a competitive marketing and bid process could be accomplished among reputed affordable developers committed to extending the long-term affordability of the project while injecting significant capital to improve the quality of housing for residents in the decades to come. After generating 23 offers and narrowing the buyer pool to three preferred developers, the seller had a difficult decision to make and ultimately chose the Jonathan Rose, Columbia Residential, and SUMMECH Community Development Corp partnership as the perfect fit.  It was a complicated transaction with many economic, regulatory, and political hurdles to overcome, yet the team lead by Jonathan Rose were able to structure a deal and capital stack that allowed both buyer and seller to get the deal done for which they bargained.”

The buyer is a partnership between Jonathan Rose Cos., Columbia Residential and local nonprofit SUMMECH Community Development Corp.  A $16.5 million renovation of the property is planned and will include new roofs, windows, elevators, and improved ADA accessibility. Renovations to the community space will include a fitness center, craft room, package room, upgraded laundry facilities, and a computer learning center. Apartment units will be renovated with new kitchens and bathrooms, Energy-Star appliances, low-flow plumbing fixtures and LED light fixtures.

As part of the acquisition and redevelopment, the current HAP contract will be extended for 20 years and the affordability of all units will be preserved under new the LIHTC income-averaging set-aside program for 30 years.

SVN Advisor Gail Bowden Named 2016 Woman of Influence

Advisor Gail Bowden Recognized by Real Estate Forum for her Contributions to the CRE Industry

SVN International Corp. (SVN) recently announced that Gail Bowden, Senior Investment Advisor with SVN | Commercial Advisory Group in Sarasota, FL, has been recognized as one of Real Estate Forum’s 2016 Women of Influence. The 23rd annual list recognizes top performing female professionals in commercial real estate whose track record of achievements have helped shape and influence the traditionally male-dominated industry.

SVN Advisor Gail BowdenReal Estate Forum, a leading publication in the commercial real estate industry, chose this year’s impressive winners from a pool of more than 300 high-caliber nominees. Bowden earned her spot on the coveted list due to her exceptional transactional volume and contributions to the industry. With over 30 years in CRE, she has cultivated a strong reputation and list of accomplishments that have contributed to a career sales total of over $200 million. Bowden recently ranked as the 3rd top-performing SVN Advisor on a national level and ranks among the top two percent of SVN commercial real estate Advisors in the United States.

“It’s a great honor to have been selected as a 2016 Women of Influence,” says SVN Senior Investment Advisor Gail Bowden. “One of my ongoing life goals has been to inspire and empower other women; to instill in them that there are no barriers, the glass ceiling has been shattered and the path has been created to achieve even greater success. In my opinion, true success is measured by our ability to pay it forward, give back through mentoring and philanthropy.”

Beyond her success on the CRE playing field, Bowden donates much of her time to industry and community organizations, including Habitat for Humanity, SPARCC (Safe Place & Rape Crisis Center) and helping SVN launch the Women’s CRE Forum (WCF) earlier this year. WCF is a dedicated platform providing education and mentorship to new and established female commercial real estate professionals with the goal of increasing and strengthening much needed female leadership in the real estate industry.

“Here at SVN we experience Gail’s hard work and commitment everyday and can’t think of anyone else more deserving of this achievement,” said SVN President and CEO Kevin Maggiacomo. “Serving as an example and mentor to many in the industry, Gail has been instrumental in launching the Women’s CRE Forum. Part of SVN’s Shared Value Network initiative, the forum serves as a tool to help further promote gender balance in commercial real estate.”

Bowden and her fellow winners are featured in Real Estate Forum’s August issue, as well as on GlobeSt.com. They will also be honored in an awards ceremony on October 5th at the joint RealShare New York and RealShare Investment & Finance cocktail reception.

SVN Featured in CCIM Institute Article

CCIM Institute Highlights SVN

This week, the CCIM Institute published an article discussing how the CCIM designation helps SVN Advisors bring their commercial real estate brokerage game to the next level. The credibility and prestige that the CCIM designation signifies helps launch Advisors into successful careers in commercial real estate. Further, the process of earning the designation means Advisors have increased their commercial real estate knowledge while working towards achieving CCIM status.

To read the full article, CLICK HERE.

So What Does CCIM Mean Anyway?

For those of you who may not know, a CCIM, or Certified Commercial Investment Member, is someone who has completed the CCIM Institute’s rigorous coursework in financial and market analysis while also gaining commercial real estate experience. According to the CCIM Institute website, key skills covered in the expert-taught courses include negotiation as well as investment analysis. These skills allow designees to more effectively help their clients minimize risk, enhance credibility, make informed decisions, and close more deals, the CCIM website explains. Practically any commercial real estate professional can benefit from the CCIM designation, and all are welcome to enroll in the courses. Once the courses are completed, a potential designee must apply in order to earn the distinction.
