Over the past three years, the team has executed approximately $1 billion in land sales and $1.4 billion in multi-housing sales and joint venture equity in the region.

JLL Capital Markets announced that Director Nick Lavin has joined its South Florida multi-housing investment sales team in the Miami office after spending almost six years in Los Angeles with JLL/HFF. In his new role, Lavin will focus on growing the firm’s multi-housing investment sales platform throughout the South Florida region.

The South Florida market has experienced robust investor interest, particularly between 2021 and 2022, culminating in multi-housing investment sales transactions exceeding $23 billion.

“We are very excited to add Nick to our South Florida team and continue to grow our multi-housing market share.” said Finkle. “Nick’s exceptional transactional track record and extensive client relationships will transfer well into one of the most desirable investment markets in the U.S.”

Throughout his career, he has executed more than $4.1 billion in commercial real estate transactions.

“I am thrilled to embark on a new chapter and leverage my experience to continue the growth of our multi-housing practice with my partners in South Florida. South Florida is a prime investment market for multi-housing, fueled by promising population trends and diverse job opportunities that will bolster demand for investors seeking reliable income and sustained long-term value appreciation,” said Lavin.

Prior to his time in the Los Angeles office, Nick Lavin also spent almost three years in Chicago with HFF. He earned his degree as a double major in Finance and Accounting from the University of Kentucky.
