NAI Hanson bolsters brokerage team with addition of Mason as SVP

NAI James E. Hanson on Tuesday said it hired Susan Mason as a senior vice president.

One of the most respected and distinguished office leasing experts in New Jersey, Mason will join the firm’s leasing team in its Teterboro office.

A highly motivated commercial real estate professional with a storied history of success throughout her 25-plus-year career, Mason’s attention to detail and commitment to client service has earned her the trust of leading private and institutional clients in meeting their office leasing needs.

Outside of her specialization in office lease negotiations and marketing, Mason’s well-rounded background in tenant construction and property management will further bolster NAI James E. Hanson’s already robust full-service commercial real estate services.

“Susan is widely regarded as one of the state’s preeminent office leasing experts,” said William Hanson, president of NAI James E. Hanson. “We are confident that her highly sought-after expertise and local market knowledge will be of tremendous value to our team and our clients. We welcome Susan to the team and look forward to further cementing our standing as northern New Jersey’s most-trusted full-service commercial real estate services firm.”

Prior to joining NAI James E. Hanson, Mason served as executive vice president for JLL in its Parsippany office, specializing in agency representation. Mason oversaw leasing for some of the state’s largest office portfolios and executed aggressive marketing and leasing campaigns that consistently drove high occupancy from many of the region’s premier corporate tenants. Previously, Mason also served as leasing director for CBRE and held positions with Lincoln Property Co. as a portfolio manager, Aegon USA as assistant vice president and Troast Group as a leasing representative and property manager, where she honed her strong negotiation, representation and construction management skills.

Throughout her career, Mason has represented both private owners and developers, as well as institutional investors, for a diverse number of firms.

Mason added: “The unprecedented conditions of New Jersey’s commercial office market are more competitive than ever, and NAI James E. Hanson stands in a league of their own when it comes to local market expertise and global resources that can assist clients with making informed and educated real estate decisions. I look forward to working closely with their exceptional team of professionals to add to that expertise as we strive to help our clients capitalize on opportunities in the market.”
