Seasoned advisors John McCalla & Mason Taylor lead the top-producing team

ATLANTA (January 26, 2023) – Franklin Street, a full-service commercial real estate and insurance firm, has welcomed a leading Atlanta-based multifamily investment sales team, adding significant value and expertise to its investor services platform. Led by Managing Director John McCalla and Senior Director Mason Taylor, the team represents owners, investors and developers in the acquisition and disposition of multifamily assets in Atlanta and throughout the Southeast.

In addition to McCalla and Taylor, the team consists of associates Jake Fushimi and Andrew Dailidonis along with several supporting team members. In the past 12 months, the top-producing team has arranged the sale of nearly 7,000 multifamily units totaling $674 million. They come most recently from Marcus & Millichap.

“John, Mason and their team are known in the market not only for their impressive production numbers, but their strong commitment to client service and high standard for excellence – two things that are extremely important to us as we continue to grow nationally,” said Franklin Street CEO Matthew Harrell. “We are proud to welcome them to our team and are confident this partnership will be a great success.”

Monetha Cobb, Regional Managing Director for Franklin Street’s Atlanta office, added, “We are thrilled to welcome this team as we continue growing our full-service capabilities in the Atlanta market. With the McCalla team’s expertise in investment sales, along with our existing capital advisory and insurance experts, no other firm in Atlanta can provide a more comprehensive scope of services for multifamily clients as Franklin Street.”

Industry veteran McCalla began his commercial real estate career in 2006 with Marcus & Millichap, where he developed a strong foundation in Atlanta’s multifamily market. In 2010, he joined Berkadia as a founding member of the firm’s Atlanta office and quickly emerged as a top producer. He later returned to Marcus & Millichap to grow his team, and in 2021 was awarded with the firm’s top broker honor, the Circle of Excellence award.

Taylor began his career in financial analysis with CBRE, where he was involved in underwriting over $5 billion in commercial real estate assets. After transitioning to multifamily investment sales with Marcus & Millichap, he quickly became a top producer alongside McCalla and was named Rookie of the Year for the firm’s Atlanta office in 2020.

“We look forward to continuing to grow our team and market share with Franklin Street, while leveraging the firm’s full-service platform, industry leading technology and collaborative approach to succeed for our clients,” McCalla said.

With Franklin Street, the McCalla team will work closely with professionals across the firm’s seven lines of business, including capital advisory, insurance and property management, to provide multifamily clients with full-service solutions.
