Jason Kern, LaSalle Americas CEO, commented: “I am pleased with the overall pace and quality of our transactional activity through the third quarter. On the acquisitions front, our team was characteristically prudent in their approach, having underwritten a significantly higher number of opportunities relative to the 13 that were closed during the quarter. We will continue to heed market signals and remain selective in both our investment and sale of assets that offer compelling risk-adjusted returns for our clients.”

Derek Lopez, LaSalle Managing Director & Head of U.S. Acquisitions, said: “The team performed well in the face of uneven market conditions, driven by disparate pricing trends and competitive bid markets. By leveraging our deep industry relationships, coupled with our world-class Research, Acquisitions, Due Diligence, Asset Management, and Portfolio Management platforms, we were able to execute a wide range of acquisitions that align with our clients’ investment objectives.”
