NASHVILLE (September 12, 2022) – Franklin Street, a full-service commercial real estate brokerage and insurance firm, has expanded to Nashville with the addition of Jonathan Hawks as Senior Director of Multifamily Investment Sales.

Hawks brings experience from several national brokerage firms and has become a top producer within Nashville’s competitive multifamily market. He will partner with Franklin Street’s existing sales, capital advisory and insurance professionals to provide comprehensive solutions for multifamily investors throughout Tennessee and Kentucky, while building a Nashville-based multifamily investment sales team.

Franklin Street, headquartered in Tampa, Florida, is expanding nationally with a current focus on sunbelt markets. While entering the market through the multifamily investment sales space, the firm plans to open a full-service office with capabilities in capital markets, leasing, insurance, and project and property management across all commercial property types.

“As our firm continues to grow, Nashville has been a key focus in our national expansion strategy,” said Franklin Street CEO Matthew Harrell. “We couldn’t be more excited for the opportunity to work with Jonathan and launch in this market with one of its leading multifamily brokers on our team. We look forward to serving the Nashville community as we continue to recruit top local talent.”

Throughout his career, Hawks has completed sales totaling over $1 billion in transaction value. He comes most recently from Capstone Apartment Partners, where he served as a multifamily investment sales advisor in the Greater Nashville Area for the last four years. Prior to that, he specialized in office and industrial investment sales with Marcus Millichap in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Hawks brings experience working with a wide variety of clients, including private equity and institutional investors, and has expertly arranged the disposition and acquisition of virtually all multifamily property types, including LIHTC, student housing, value-add and luxury Class A communities. He is well-qualified to advise his clients on the highest yield strategies from single investor properties to large multi-market portfolios.

“I am excited for the opportunity to grow something new with Franklin Street in the Nashville market, while leveraging the firm’s unparalleled platform through multiple lines of business and comprehensive resources that better serve our clients.”
