NAI Partners Property Services always puts its clients’ needs and interests ahead of its own

Houston, TX, February 9, 2022 – The Property Services division of NAI Partners—the commercial real estate services business of Partners Real Estate Company—is the 2nd-largest privately-held and independently-owned property services division among commercial real estate services firms headquartered in Houston.

Property Services

NAI Partners Property Services group was recently strengthened by new executive leadership in the form of veteran real estate professional Branon Pesnell, Senior Vice President and Managing Director. Mr. Pesnell brings both a wealth of property management leadership expertise to the table, as well as deep brokerage experience that gives him a distinctive perspective and unique skill set that will further serve the company’s clients and elevates its already-strong Property Services platform.

NAI Partners’ Property Services Division has also hired Cliff Parker as Senior Vice President of Operations for Property Services. Mr. Parker is responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations of the entirety of NAI Partners’ property management portfolio across Houston, Austin, and San Antonio. Mr. Parker has a wealth of experience managing commercial properties of all sizes and classes, from the management of 310,000-sq.-ft. 3009 Post Oak Boulevard in Houston, to the iconic MetLife Building, comprised of 3.1 million sq. ft. of office and retail space in Midtown Manhattan.

With nearly double its total of square feet under management five years ago, NAI Partners’ Property Services Division has substantially expanded the capabilities of what it can offer its property services clients. NAI Partners Property Services is a hands-on business partner continually seeking avenues to improve the overall tenant experience, helping ensure minimal turnover and enhanced occupancy levels. The group proactively listens and swiftly takes action when needed, acting as the custodian of its clients’ assets as if it were its own, so that clients can focus on their businesses.

“This growth could not be accomplished without our team of 50-plus dedicated professionals working in lockstep with one singular goal in mind: putting our clients’ interests and needs ahead of our own. Every. Single. Day,” said Mr. Pesnell. “Our dedicated team of 50-plus property services professionals partners with real estate owners to improve revenue and retain tenants by developing a strategy based on their objectives. Unlike our competition, our clients benefit from our real estate ownership and diversity of services, as demonstrated by our clients’ success through partnerships and referrals.”

Property Services

NAI Partners’ Property Services Division is different from all other commercial real estate management firms because:

  • It owns property itself and has a unique perspective.
  • It’s privately held—not publicly traded—and its fiduciary responsibility is to its owners, not shareholders.
  • It focuses on its clients’ objectives—not its own.
  • It’s part of a full-service CRE firm offering a diversity of services including brokerage, property management, asset management, construction management, investment, development, and valuation.

Commercial building owners in Houston, Austin, or San Antonio ready to partner with like-minded real estate professionals to increase the value of  their investments and elevate their property management service delivery can contact Mr. Pesnell directly at (713) 985-4606 to learn more.
