Top Tenant Representation Team Joins NAI Capital


Los Angeles, CA October 30, 2018– A top team of brokers led by Gian Starita has joined NAI Capital, announced Chris Jackson, executive managing director of NAI Capital’s San Fernando Valley office. Lucy Hartford, Ken Ward, and Gian Starita join NAI Capital from Colliers International, where they specialized in capital markets and tenant representation in L.A.'s San Fernando Valley.

“Gian, Ken, and Lucy are an established, tenant rep team in the San Fernando Valley office market. They have built an outstanding reputation among clients and peers as expert, creative tenant rep brokers. We are excited to have them join OUR FAMILY,” said Chris Jackson.

Gian, joins NAI Capital as Executive Vice President and will become a member NAI Capital’s Investment Services Group.

Gian said, “Our motivation for moving the team was strategic.  I have been working for the past year in an exciting niche of the 1031 exchange market known as the 'Cash out Exchange.'  The move to NAI Capital is instrumental to our team due to the large volume of sales transactions NAI Capital completes.  The Encino office is on track to complete somewhere around 110-120 sales this year.  In my first week, communication between the 230+ brokers here has been extraordinary." Gian added, “NAI Capital is an excellent home for us. It has many truly talented professionals, as well as an entrepreneurial culture and global platform that includes brokerage, research, marketing and property management. That combination really enhances our ability to serve our clients."
