Avison Young expands suburban tri-state brokerage platform with veteran multimarket leasing professional

David Sherman brings more than 40 years of commercial real estate experience across northern New Jersey, Westchester County and Connecticut

Avison Young Principal & Tri-State President Dorothy Alpert on Thursday announced the hiring of David Sherman as principal, where he will help bolster the firm’s suburban Tri-State brokerage service line.

Sherman will be based in the firm’s Fairfield/Westchester office and focus on multimarket tenant representation, specializing in office and industrial sectors across northern New Jersey, Westchester County and Connecticut, although many of his accounts span the country and globe.

“We are thrilled to have David join Avison Young’s tri-state team. His extensive leadership and multimarket knowledge bring added value to the firm’s brokerage platform as we expand our client service offerings across the suburban tri-state region,” Alpert said.

Sherman will lead business development efforts by working collaboratively with the Avison Young New Jersey and Connecticut offices and across the U.S. to identify new opportunities in the industrial and office, including flexible solutions, sectors.

Sherman brings 40-plus years of commercial real estate experience to Avison Young, having completed some of the largest office and industrial leasing and sales transactions in the country and currently handling over 2 million square feet of tenant representation assignments for various Fortune 500 companies. In his previous role, he has collaborated with numerous national colleagues on a variety of real estate assignments across the U.S., with a total transaction value exceeding $1 billion in leasing and sales.

“Avison Young’s rapidly growing Tri-State presence and people-first culture made it a clear choice for me as the next move in my career,” Sherman said. “I look forward to partnering with my colleagues across the region and tapping into Avison Young’s innovative resources to provide cutting-edge, customized solutions that address our clients’ real estate needs.”
