SAN FRANCISCO-Tenant representation specialist Dan Latini has joined Colliers International’s Peninsula office in Redwood City and multifamily specialist Doug Himan has joined the Marcus & Millichap’s East Bay office in Oakland.

Latini spent 20 years representing tenants in the market for UGL Equis, Julien J. Studley Inc. and LJ Hooker Intl. before founding Argus Realty Advisors Inc., which advised corporations on office headquarters relocations and expansions, building and land acquisitions for medical and retail sites, and specialized facility requirements for biotechnology, telecommunications and high- technology companies.

“Development is not a good space to be in right now,” Latini tells Globest.com. “When I looked around the landscape, I saw Colliers had the full array of services to support and enhance a corporate advisory practice.”

When asked about the current market place Latini says it’s an excellent time for corporate tenants to try to “reduce their spend” on real estate in this environment. “Owners might have notes maturing that are tied to tenant leases expiring” and may be more willing to negotiate a “blend and extend” deal where the owner lowers the current rental rate in trade for more term on the back end of the lease, he says.

In the other personnel move, apartment broker Douglas Himan recently left NAI BT Commercial to return to Marcus & Millichap. As an associate vice president of investments, Himan will focus on brokering the sale of multi-family properties on behalf of private and institutional investors.

Himan has been in the commercial real estate industry since 1999. Himan was an apartment broker with M&M’s Palo Alto office until 2004, when he left to try his hand at condo conversions before joining NAI BT Commercial.

Prior to those moves Aaron Wright of data center developer Base Partners joined the year-old San Francisco office of the NYC-based real estate services firm Helmsley Spear as a senior vice president in charge of commercial leasing and Mark Geisreiter replaced Bill Hvidt as the Bay Area executive vice president and regional managing director for Grubb & Ellis Co. Hvidt remains with G&E as a full-time broker.
