JLL said May 18 it hired nine-year industry professional Kelsey Nakamura as a senior vice president with the firm’s New Jersey office brokerage team.
Nakamura will work in collaboration with the N.J. office brokerage team, led by New Jersey office Executive Managing Director Tim Greiner. A former director at Cushman & Wakefield, Nakamura will focus on all aspects of office brokerage, including tenant representation, agency leasing and portfolio clients.
Prior to Cushman & Wakefield, she served as director of leasing and asset management at Saxum Real Estate, a privately held real estate investment and development company. During her career, she has negotiated more than 3.5 million square feet of transactions, with an aggregate deal value of over $750 million.
Her deep understanding of tenant objectives and fresh perspective has helped companies transform their real estate to better attract the next generation of talent, and her insight into the landlord’s perspective enables her to provide a superior negotiating position in transactions.
“Kelsey’s extraordinary experience across a broad range of office brokerage services positions her to leverage JLL’s extensive platform for the benefit of her clients and help her achieve her career ambitions,” said Greiner. “We are pleased to welcome her to the team.”
Nakamura has received multiple industry awards and recognitions throughout her career.
