SVN | Graham, Langlois & Legendre extends market coverage by opening new Gulf Coast location under the leadership of industry powerhouse
Baton Rouge, LA – June 13, 2016 – SVN | Graham, Langlois & Legendre (SVNGLL), a commercial real estate (CRE) brokerage firm servicing clients in the Greater Baton Rouge area, has announced the addition of a new office location in New Orleans, Louisiana. Led by industry veteran Jeff Wilke, CCIM, SIOR the new office, operating as SVN | Gulf Partners, brings SVNGLL’s value-driven real estate services to New Orleans and surrounding areas.
This expansion is the next step in what has already been an exponential growth period for SVNGLL, who in April became the third largest CRE firm in Baton Rouge by quadrupling size in less than two years. The firm, who specializes in the sales and leasing of retail, land, office, industrial and multifamily assets, as well as net leased investment sales and business brokerage services, opened SVN | Gulf Partners to leverage the strength of the growing New Orleans market and the natural synergy that exists between Nola and the Capital Region.
“Coupling our deep transactional history and vast knowledge of Gulf Coast markets with the current opportunities that exist in New Orleans, we knew it was time to broaden our services outside of Baton Rouge,” explains SVNGLL Managing Director Ben Graham. “By teaming up with Jeff we found the right partner to bring our proven real estate strategies to clients in a market that is experiencing very aggressive growth.”

SVN | Gulf Partners is led by Managing Director Jeff Wilke, CCIM, SIOR who brings an extensive 16-year industry background to the New Orleans commercial real estate market. Licensed in Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi, Wilke currently serves as the President of the LA, MS, AL, Northwest FL chapter of SIOR and Chair of the Planning Committee for the 2017 SIOR Spring World Conference to be held in New Orleans. Having completed over 9 million square feet of real estate transactions with a market value in excess of $200 million, Wilke plans to use his vast experience coupled with SVN’s exclusive cooperation model to help New Orleans clients see maximum return on their CRE investments.
“New Orleans is a commercial real estate market full of possibilities, and it takes a firm with local knowledge and a platform based on maximum exposure for clients to experience its full potential,” says Wilke. “SVN is founded on the practice of Compensated Cooperation where assets are marketed to the entire brokerage community, using collaboration to bring top visibility far beyond local and regional limits. This results in less time on market, increased demand and higher prices, creating value for everyone involved.”
