SAN FRANCISCO-Commercial brokerage Transwestern Commercial Services opened an office at 655 Montgomery Street and hired three leasing agents to augment the commercial property management team already in place.

Officials for the Chicago-based operation called the opening a beginning to the additions planned for Northern California locations. The company also has offices in Oakland, Sacramento and San Jose.

Real Estate veteran Mark Terzian joined Transwestern as managing director of commercial leasing. He was formerly senior vice president and director of tenant representation locally for Grubb & Ellis. He also spent seven years as a senior director at Cushman & Wakefield and was also senior vice president at TRI Commercial Real Estate.

Additionally, Patrick Hubbard and David Nachman, also previously with Grubb & Ellis, have been hired as leasing agents. Brought on earlier this year were vice president and director of agency leasing Janet Burch, and Jeffrey West, senior vice president of management services for the Northwest region. Before joining Transwestern, Burch worked with Cushman & Wakefield. West was formerly with LaSalle Investment Management.

The Bay Area office previously focused on property management and is now working to increase it’s presence by offering a full-service platform specializing in leasing including corporate advisory services, landlord leasing and tenant representation. In doing so, Transwestern Commercial Services has plans to hire as many as eight more leasing brokers as needed and open another office on the peninsula in the near future.

“What we’ve done as a company is to open an office in San Francisco to provide all of the services offered by Transwestern,” Terzian told GlobeSt. “My group will specifically focus on leasing opportunities in the city and expand our services to meet the needs of our clients. We also have plans to add several brokers to our group but that will be done over time.”
