DALLAS-Seizing the chance for an ownership stake, a Dallas/Fort Worth professional is leading the play for NAI Robert Lynn to get a property management group off the ground. The new division begins with a 500,000-sf portfolio of industrial space and more on the way.

John Lancaster, president and principal of NAI Robert Lynn Management Services, tells GlobeSt.com that the launch includes assignments with multiple owners for properties in Valwood, the Great Southwest and Brookhollow industrial districts plus he’s in talks with institutional owners for another 500,000 sf. “I’d like to be over two million sf by the end of the year,” he says.

Lancaster, previously a senior vice president for Dallas-based TIG Real Estate Services, is marking his third week on the NAI job. The 15-year professional says he was approached about the division’s launch about six months ago as part of the firm’s full-service push under the NAI flag. “Having the principal status is what really makes it work,” he says. For now, it’s Lancaster and one controller, but he plans to bring an assistant by year’s end.

Lancaster says he’ll also lease the space that he manages, but has plenty of support from the rest of the firm if he needs it. The plan calls for office as well as his specialty, industrial space. As for the territory, he says the door is open to any location in the metroplex.
