A transitioning market requires even more investment savvy, but Avison Young’s newest investment sales team is ready to take on any changing market conditions in the years ahead. The firm has bolstered its existing investment sales team with the addition of Chris Maling, David Maling and Patrick Barnes, who join the firm as principals and will be based in the Downtown Los Angeles office. The Maling-Barnes team will focus on national retail, office and industrial sales as well as distressed asset sales for both private and institutional capital.

“In a very strong up market, you can get away with making mistakes and let the market cure any oversights that you may have,” Chris Maling tells GlobeSt.com. “However, as the market is transitioning with global effects coupled with rising interest rates, more investors are pausing before they jump in. Therefore, our role as advisors is needed more than ever.” Maling says that this is also a time when institutional capital is looking closely at portfolio allocations and maintaining diversity, mitigating exposure during a potential downturn. “Institutional investors are looking to rebalancing various asset classes in their portfolios,” he adds. “If they are underrepresented in a certain asset class, we guide them in repositioning their portfolio and growing it to where their needs are.”
