Dallas-based commercial real estate firm Younger Partners welcomed CRE veteran Jerry Averyt to the brokerage team. He comes to Younger Partners from Henry S. Miller Brokerage, where he served as senior vice president in the office and industrial division. He worked with clients in both office and industrial areas as well as in investment properties and land sales.
“I’ve known Jerry for years and always admired his skill and work ethic. He’s an extraordinary broker and we anticipate great things as he joins our team,” says Younger Partners’ Moody Younger.
Averyt has negotiated more than 550 lease transactions totaling more than $100 million. His 42 years of experience encompass marketing, planning, real estate finance, and property management.
“It has been a privilege to work for Henry S. Miller for more than 19 years, but this change helps me re-energize my efforts and working with Moody and Kathy Permenter will be a great move for me,” Averyt says. “Kathy has the drive to make the big deals and Moody does a great job with the organization. They complement each other and create a dynamic that achieves success. I’m ready to hit the ground running and serve clients serving clients and generating new business,” Averyt says.
Averyt’s 42-year real estate career began in 1977 with Vantage Companies, primarily specializing in the development and leasing of new office properties. After 14 years with Vantage, Averyt worked for CB Commercial and Centre Development Company. He also spent five years at Grubb & Ellis.
