Investment sales agents Gary Chou, Aron Cline and Calvin Short have joined Berkeley Capital Advisors (BCA) as partners, specializing in net lease investment sales across the country. The three commercial real estate veterans will establish the firm’s first West Coast office, opening this month in Orange County, California.
With 30 years of industry experience and more than 1,300 transactions totaling $3.5 billion closed, the team joins Berkeley Capital Advisors from Matthews Real Estate Investment Services, where they were involved in the early growth strategy and technology development of the company.
“For years, BCA has looked to expand to the West Coast, but until now has not found the right group to make the leap,” said BCA Founding Partner Rob Carter. “The addition of Calvin, Gary and Aron provides Berkeley not only direct access to the West Coast capital our clients are seeking but, more importantly, they are great people with a tremendous track record.”
While focusing on improving and expanding their business lines within the net lease space, including net lease retail, net lease industrial and net lease medical, the partners plan to grow the West Coast footprint and attracting top talent to the new Orange County office.
