HOUSTON, TX, Nov. 29, 2011 /CNW/ - Rand Stephens, Avison Young Principal and Managing Director of the company's Houston office, announced today that commercial real estate broker Charlie Neuhaus has joined Avison Young's brokerage operations in Houston.

Effective immediately, Neuhaus joins Avison Young as a Principal and will focus his efforts on tenant representation and corporate services. He will partner with high-profile industry veteran Harry Holmes, who also joined Avison Young as a Principal earlier this month. Neuhaus was previously Market Leader, Texas with Johnson Development Associates (JDA) in Houston.

"We're very excited to have Charlie join us. He brings to Avison Young a strong development background that will benefit companies looking to design and build their own facilities," comments Stephens. "Charlie's background and industry experience, combined with that of Harry Holmes' and other resources offered by our company, will bolster our tenant rep and corporate services platform. Bringing Charlie on board is also consistent with our company's strategy to add brokers who represent the best intellectual capital in our business."

Prior to joining Avison Young, Neuhaus started the Houston office of JDA. During his four years with the company, he was involved in development, management, leasing and disposition activities for JDA assets, and pursued acquisition and development opportunities in Houston and the Western U.S.

Before that, Neuhaus was Senior Associate, Corporate Advisory Services with Trammell Crow/CB Richard Ellis Real Estate Company where he had a successful career as a tenant rep professional. Clients included VMware, TYCO, Intel, Dashiell Corp. and YUM! Brands.

Neuhaus was also previously a market representative for ProLogis, actively marketing 9.5 million square feet of industrial warehouse space; a marketing associate with Insite Commercial Real Estate, generating business for the tenant representation group; and a home and small business sales consultant for Dell Computer Corp., where he achieved top 5% in sales in his last year.

Neuhas is a board member for Bo's Place bereavement centre; a Vestry member at St. John the Divine Episcopal Church; and an advisory board member of the Neuhaus Education Center. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology with a minor in business from the University of Texas at Austin.

"Charlie's past successes, coupled with his strong work ethic and goal-oriented personality, will allow us to deliver the full range of capabilities and level of professionalism that clients have come to expect of us," says Earl Webb, Avison Young's President, U.S. Operations. "We are very excited to have Charlie join our growing team in Houston as Avison Young continues to execute its broader plans. We look forward to working with Charlie and building on his comprehensive market knowledge to identify business opportunities in the local and national marketplace."

Over the past three years, Avison Young has grown from 11 to 25 offices and from 300 to more than 800 real estate professionals across Canada and the U.S.

"I'm thrilled to be joining Avison Young and to be working with Harry Holmes and the entire Avison Young team. The growth of the company and the quality of people coming to Avison Young on a weekly basis is very impressive," says Neuhaus. "Moreover, the company's pool of talent, resources and expertise gives us the ability to provide the most comprehensive client-centric services to our clients. Joining the company as a Principal, and having an equity position, is also a terrific opportunity at this point in my career."
