Stan Johnson Company More Than Doubles Size of Los Angeles Office

 LOS ANGELES, CA (May 18, 2011) — Stan Johnson Company, one of the nation’s leading real estate brokerage and advisory firms specializing in net-lease investment sales, announced today that it has more than doubled the size of its Los Angeles office, adding three veteran brokers to its team.

 Lindsey Scully, Ed Breslin and Jackie Baker will now serve as associate directors for the Los Angeles office.  The trio joins Stan Johnson Company associate directors Derek Layne and Brad Richardson who helped launch the office in October 2010. 

Lindsey Scully (top right photo) has owned and operated, LES, Inc., a commercial brokerage firm based in Southern California, for over 11 years. She has successfully brokered over $480 million in commercial real estate deals including industrial, office, retail as well as self-storage and mixed-use developments, having worked with numerous high profile developers and investors throughout California and Canada.

Ed Breslin (middle left photo) brings over 9 years of commercial real estate experience to Stan Johnson Company, most recently serving as vice president of investments for REMAX/Commercial. He has closed more than $175 million in sales transactions since entering the business with the majority being in the multi-family and single tenant net leased investments.   He also has a strong financial background, working previously with Goldman Sachs and Prudential Securities.

With over seven years of commercial real estate experience, Jackie Baker (middle right photo) recently served as principal at a boutique brokerage firm where she specialized in the sale and lease of commercial properties. Previously, she worked with both First Industrial Realty Trust and The Staubach Company in the industrial leasing sector.  Throughout her career, she has completed transactions encompassing more than 2.8 million square feet.

“We’re excited about bringing in three seasoned commercial real estate professionals to help grow our office in Los Angeles,” said Daniel Herrold, Executive Managing Director, who heads up the company’s west coast expansion efforts.  “These three bring a wealth of experience in different facets of commercial real estate, as well as strong local relationships that we will be able to leverage.  I’m excited to watch them ramp up their business in our new office.”

The company’s expansion strategy kicked off in late 2008 with the launch of an office in Houston, Texas followed early last year with an office launch in Chicago, Illinois. The company also has a Capital Markets office in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
