FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SVN/Graham, Langlois & Legendre Becomes Third Largest Commercial Real Estate Firm in Baton Rouge
The commercial real estate brokerage firm quadrupled size in less than two years
Baton Rouge, LA – April 4, 2016 – SVN | Graham, Langlois & Legendre (SVNGLL), a commercial real estate (CRE) brokerage firm servicing clients in Baton Rouge and surrounding areas, has been named by the Greater Baton Rouge Business Report as the third largest CRE firm in Baton Rouge. The youngest of the top three firms on the “Listmakers Ranking”, SVNGLL was rated by number of local, licensed commercial real estate agents.
Launched in August 2014 by industry colleagues Ben Graham, CCIM, Justin Langlois, CCIM and Steve Legendre, CCIM, SVNGLLhas grown exponentially since opening its doors with only four brokers on staff. In just 19-months, the CRE firm has quadrupled its size to a team of 16 brokers specializing in Baton Rouge area sales and leasing in retail, land, office, industrial and multifamily, as well as net leased investment sales and recently added business brokerage services. SVNGLL can confirm they are currently signing on a new Advisor who will officially join the roster in April, bringing the new team count to 17.
“Though each individual on our team has deep roots in the Baton Rouge real estate market, it’s been truly outstanding to experience such dynamic growth within our SVN office,” says SVNGLL Managing Director Justin Langlois. “We attribute this success to the culture we have worked hard to build, one that emphasizes accountability, responsibility and transparency in everything we do for our clients. Our team works together to reach every client goal, and that creates a positive environment that people want to be a part of.”
In addition to its collaborative culture, SVNGLL accredits its achievements to the industry-leading marketing and CRE technology platforms offered through SVN.
“These platforms offer a competitive advantage which ultimately leads to better service for our clients,” explains SVNGLL Managing Director Ben Graham. “The tools that SVN provides our Advisors allows them to effectively and efficiently achieve successful results for our clients, generating the highest value possible.”
Culture, platform, and hard work, has paid off for SVNGLL as the firm recently reported a 30% increase in GCI from 1Q15 to 1Q16. In addition, in November 2015 the CRE firm extended its extensive suite of CRE resources to include business brokerage services through a strategic partnership with industry veteran Camm Morton, MBA, CEPA of VR Business Brokers.
SVNGLL expects to maintain this growth momentum well into 2016 by continuing to enhance its team with experienced, dedicated real estate professionals, further strengthening its already comprehensive client services platform.
