Commercial real estate industry veteran Clendening will focus on cross-selling the company’s investor services

Houston, TX, May 16, 2022 – Partners Real Estate Company (“Partners”), a top 4 largest privately held and independently owned commercial real estate firm in the state of Texas—and the holding company of commercial real estate service firm NAI Partners, and real estate investment and development platform Partners Capital—today announced the hiring of commercial real estate industry veteran Jennifer Clendening as Senior Vice President of Investor Services for NAI Partners. In this role, she will be responsible for pursuing opportunities to cross-sell the company’s wide range of investor services, including Property Management, Project Leasing, Facilities Management, Construction Management, and Investment Sales; as well as the firm’s Valuation & Appraisal Services offering, among others.

Among her primary initiatives out of the gate will be to further enhance Partners’ collaborative environment between its range of investor services across all geographies, cementing the organization’s full-service platform as a true “one-stop shop” for all of its investor clients’ needs.

“Our services business has expanded dramatically over the years—from tenant representation, to property services, investment sales, valuation services, project leasing and facilities management, to name just a few—enabling us to provide solutions for virtually any commercial real estate service our clients could ever need,” said Jon Silberman, Managing Partner of Partners. “We’re excited to add a professional of Jennifer’s caliber and deep real estate experience, as she will help further drive the connectivity and amplification of our full-service capabilities.”

“‘Clients first’ is not only a core value of Partners, but has been a cornerstone of my own career,” said Ms. Clendening. “I’m thrilled to be able to take on this brand-new role that will help us continue to put our clients’ needs ahead of our own through the augmentation of a unified and distinctive investor services platform—allowing us to not only satisfy the current needs of our clients, but offer them a full suite of additional services with a firm they know and trust.”

Ms. Clendening comes to Partners from CBRE, where she most recently served as Managing Director for Asset Services Business Development for nearly a decade. There, she leveraged her deep understanding of commercial real estate to create collaborative opportunities across all lines of business, enhance relationships and drive growth. Prior to that role she spent time at JLL as a Vice President in that company’s Property Management vertical. She comes to Partners with more than two decades of high-level commercial real estate experience at many of the best-known names in the industry.

“With the commitment to growing our already diverse array of service lines comes the opportunity to augment the synergies we provide our clients with a leader focused on fully tapping into business development opportunities,” said Travis Rodgers, Partner and Chief Operating Officer of Partners. “Jennifer’s depth and breadth of industry experience and client-centered focus mesh perfectly with our mission and values, and as conversations progressed it became readily apparent that she was an ideal fit to lead this new business development initiative.”
