[IMGCAP(1)]HOUSTON-Grubb & Ellis Co. has beefed up its local investment property division with the addition of Henry Hagendorf and Beth Young as vice presidents. Hagendorf, who comes to firm from Sperry Van Ness, and Young, who had her own company, specialize in medical office and office properties.

According to Hagendorf, the two brokers worked several transactions together in their former positions and decided to look for an opportunity to link up formally as a team. “She’s more of a detail person and I’m more of a global thinker, I guess,” he says. “We felt our talents complement each other and we could create a solid team. We would make good presentations and be able to tell our story in a way that would make people listen. We thought this was a case of one plus one equaling a lot more than two.”

Hagendorf has more than 22 years of commercial real estate experience in a wide range of areas, including all phases of portfolio management, project leasing, project valuations and rehabilitation. During his tenure as an investment broker for Sperry Van Ness, he was a top producer nationally, recording a transaction volume in excess of $150 million in 2007-08.
