Industrial Influencers 2021
It would be easy to say that now is a great time to be in the industrial real estate asset space. Demand, pricing, rents—they all favor the industry right now. As one example of the sector’s great fundamentals: rents are projected to increase as much as 10% or more this year, per Prologis. But experts in this category do have some juggling to do. Tenants are eager for space and it is not easy to satisfy them all. Developable land for industrial use is relatively scarce and the prices for sale lease-backs are rising as developers are seeking out any property available for their purposes. Navigating this environment takes skill. With these challenges in mind, we have selected our annual group of industrial influencers. We choose, as we always do, based on accomplishments and impacts the influencers have made on the industry. As you read through these stories, we believe you will agree with our decisions, hard as they were to make.
STAN JOHNSON CO.
For the last 35 years, brokerage firm Stan Johnson Co. has been a leader in the triple-net lease segment of the market, and industrial properties are one of the firm’s strongest asset classes. Founded by president, CEO and namesake Stan Johnson, the firm has completed more than 850 industrial transactions and more than $10 billion in industrial sales volume, but much of that has come within just the last three years as the industrial market boomed. Already this year, Stan Johnson Co. has brokered the sales of an eight-property industrial portfolio for $28 million, a food processing facility in Sacramento for $20.8 million and a distribution facility in Ohio for $11 million, which sold above the list price. The firm brings both a local and a national perspective to deals, while specializing in single-asset and portfolio sales, sale-leaseback transactions and 1031 exchanges for all types of industrial properties, from warehouse and distribution to cold storage and manufacturing. Outside of the office, Stan Johnson Co. is engaged in the community through its philanthropic foundation SJCares, which works with local food banks throughout the country.
