SVN | GLL opens New Orleans office

    Baton Rouge-based Sperry Van Ness | Graham, Langlois & Legendre has expanded into the New Orleans market.

    The commercial brokerage real estate firm announced today it opened SVN | Gulf Partners, led by Jeff Wilke, on June 1 to provide real estate services to New Orleans and the surrounding areas.

    “New Orleans is a commercial real estate market full of possibilities,” says Wilke, who has 16 years of experience in the New Orleans commercial real estate market.

    In a news release, SVN |  GLL says it opened the New Orleans office to “leverage the strength of the growing New Orleans market and the synergy that exists between” New Orleans and Baton Rouge.

    The Baton Rouge SVN office is a relatively young firm. An emerging commercial real estate company, SVN | GLL opened in 2014 and by April of this year had quadrupled in size.

    This expansion was the next step in SVN | GLL’s growth, the company says.

    “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,” says Ben Graham, SVN | GLL managing director.

    SVN | GLL is a franchise of Sperry Van Ness International Corp, which has more than 1,200 international brokers, advisers and staff.

    The firm specializes in the sale of land, office, retail, industrial and multifamily assets.
