Net Lease Influencers 2023
It has not been an easy year in the net lease space but the men and women who help close these deals have persevered, bringing their “A” game to the table. Even as dealmaking has stagnated, new opportunities have arisen for buyers and sellers and the smart people have rushed to take advantage of them or at least guided their clients to do so. With this recognition, we acknowledge the industry wherewithal that these people and companies have accumulated over time and used to maximum advantage in these uncertain conditions.
For more than a decade, Northmarq Managing Director and Senior Vice President BJ Feller has been an active participant in the net lease marketplace and has completed more than $5.5 billion of capital markets transactions during that time. Feller has proven able to work across geographies, asset types and client profiles.
Feller was a founding partner of the Chicago office of Stan Johnson Co., which Northmarq recently acquired, and was integral to the firm’s growth trajectory prior to its acquisition. In 2020 during a challenging capital markets environment, Feller and colleagues completed $285 million in transactions. As a partner and member of the President’s Council, Feller played a central role in both the strategy and execution of the company’s vision.
At Northmarq, Feller leads the largest team within the platform and is responsible for managing its production pipeline, brokerage professionals and industry relationships. Feller has long believed in a client-first focus rooted in value creation for real estate partners, and Feller shares that spirit and energy with colleagues. Feller says recent global geopolitical events have only served to heighten and strengthen the conviction that focuses on helping others and that adding value is the best and perhaps the only “protective moat” around the brokerage business. Clients may remember a great cap rate on a sale, but they are far more likely to remember when they were struggling with a problem and the team helped them find the path to the solution, Feller says.
Feller is involved in multiple commercial real estate organizations including ICSC, NAIOP – Chicago Chapter, ULI, the Real Estate Investors Association and the University of Michigan Real Estate Alumni Alliance.
