Veteran industrial broker brings two decades of commercial real estate experience to new role at Partners

Houston, TX, October 5, 2023 – Partners Real Estate (“Partners”), one of the largest independent commercial real estate firms in Texas, today announced that Stan Nowak has joined the firm as a Partner in the company’s Austin office. Mr. Nowak comes to Partners from Avison Young, where he previously served as Principal of its Capital Markets group.

“If you know Austin industrial real estate, then you know Stan Nowak—he consistently ranks among the top producers in the city, and adding a veteran broker of Stan’s caliber at the Partner level in our Austin office will substantially augment our ability to service every commercial real estate need our clients have,” said Jon Silberman, Managing Partner of Partners. “Additionally, having recently marked our first anniversary as a fully independent firm, it’s a further testament to the power of our unique platform that has established Partners as the place to be for entrepreneurial, sales-minded, and savvy commercial real estate professionals who want all of the opportunities in our business.”

Mr. Nowak is a veteran commercial real estate professional with nearly 19 years of experience. During his time at Avison Young, he provided industrial and office brokerage services in Southern California as well as in Austin, Texas, spearheading the Capital Markets group’s industrial expertise in the central Texas region. Additionally, Mr. Nowak has orchestrated successful land brokerage deals spanning hundreds of acres for various development initiatives.

“Any time we expand our partnership with a well-known industry professional, among the most critical components is that the individual shares our values. Stan is a great example of our core values, and we’re thrilled to have him join the Partners team and strengthen our Austin team,” said Travis Rodgers, Partner and Chief Operating Officer, Partners. “In addition to being a terrific culture fit, Stan’s deal-making capabilities are rivaled only by his love of fishing — Stan owned multiple sportfishing operations in San Diego, California and started an apparel company with a social media influencer, exemplifying our “entrepreneurial passion” long before he joined Partners.”

During his career, Mr. Nowak has completed over half a billion dollars in sale and lease transactions totaling nearly 5 million sq. ft. of space. He has consistently been named one of Avison Young’s Top 10 producers and is a holder of an SIOR designation.

“I’ve gotten to know much of the team at Partners, and have always been impressed with their achievements and the way they do business,” said Mr. Nowak. “Notably, their becoming an independent brand made it clear this is an organization committed to putting its clients’ and investors’ needs ahead of its own, with a growth-minded evolution that ensures our customers receive only the most exceptional real estate services available. I’m excited to work closely with my teammate and market-leader John Colglazier, Jr. to expand and enhance the level and quality of services provided to our collective clients in the greater Austin and San Antonio markets.”

Partners recently celebrated its first anniversary as Partners Real Estate, and during that time the company hasn’t skipped a beat. In addition to continuing to attract the top talent in the commercial real estate industry and ranking among the top deal-makers in Texas, Partners placed among the Business Journal’s top 25 brokerages in each of the four cities in which we operate , as well as on all four Best Places to Work designations.
