Investment Sales veteran becomes organization’s 26th Partner

Houston, TX, May 25, 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 it has promoted Joshua Lass-Sughrue to Partner.

“Achieving the level of Partner is a major accomplishment at our firm,” said Jon Silberman, Managing Partner of Partners. “The individuals that have achieved this designation comprise an elite cadre of performers that have consistently demonstrated a level of contribution that not only supersedes the top producers in the industry, but also cements that they have what it takes to be the best of the best across all business disciplines.”

Mr. Lass-Sughrue joined Partners’ Investment Sales division in 2010 and has closed more than $500 million worth of real estate transactions. His tenacious work ethic has led to him consistently rank among the company’s top producers annually, and frequently as the top investment sales broker within that cohort.

“Josh—or JLS, as nearly everyone refers to him as—has been a vital part of our investment sales practice for more than a decade. His deep experience and knowledge of the investment sales arena will be indispensable at the Partner level of the holding company,” said Travis Rodgers, Partner and Chief Operating Officer of Partners. “Josh truly understands our entrepreneurial spirit and is consistently a steward of the firm’s core values and mission; this promotion is very well-deserved.”

Recent significant transactions completed by Mr. Lass-Sughrue include the sale of a 13,842-sq.-ft. retail center called Sienna Point, the sale of a 341,252-sq.-ft. industrial portfolio on Greens Road in Houston, and arranging a 7,700-sq.-ft. industrial lease for Xcalibur MPH (U.S.) Inc at West Little York Trade Park.

Mr. Lass-Sughrue entered the commercial real estate industry in 2005 and quickly made a name for himself by earning his firm’s 2006 Rookie of the Year achievement award. He consistently ranks as a top performer, earning many sales awards and having been recognized as the “Best of the Best” several times by the Houston Business Journal.
