Lawyer turned CRE professional Jeff Rood

Former lawyer turned commercial real estate professional Jeff Rood is the guest with host Chad Griffiths.

Among the topics they discuss:

  • 3:31 - why industrial real estate brokerage?
  • 10:29 - how lawyers view brokers;
  • 16:10 - what can brokers do to help the deal;
  • 22:07- negotiating the lease;

Rood is an industrial real estate specialist with Franklin Street in Jacksonville, Fla.

In this role, he represents owners and occupiers of industrial and other properties throughout Florida in a variety of real estate needs, including investment sales, leasing, site selection, development and more.

Rood transitioned to brokerage after a career in commercial real estate law in Jacksonville, having practised as a senior associate with the large Florida-based law firm GrayRobinson, PA and then as a sole practitioner.

He has unique experience in the sector; for example, he served as the sole counsel to the owner of a four-property, 15-tenant industrial portfolio in Jacksonville, negotiating all of its leases and renewals for three years before successfully providing all legal guidance in the portfolio’s complex $38-million sale.
