Jorg Mast and Chris Paul will form a new investment team focusing on multifamily and mixed-use properties.
Former JLL executive Jorg Mast and LaPaul Partners president Chris Paul are joining Colliers International. The seasoned local property executives will help lead a new team focused on investment-grade multifamily and mixed-use properties in Texas and the surrounding region.
“The addition of Jorg and Chris will be a great benefit to our growing capital markets team and our clients,” said Steve Everbach, Colliers International President, Central Region | U.S. Brokerage.
Prior to joining Colliers, Mast spent the last six years at JLL, focusing exclusively on investment sales of institutional multifamily properties. Danny Miller, who was also previously at JLL, will accompany him to Colliers as a senior associate. Before JLL, Danny held positions at Newmark Knight Frank and HFF.
“Colliers’ recent acquisition of Dougherty Mortgage (now Colliers Mortgage) will enable us to directly originate loans from Fannie Mae and HUD,” said Mast. “This will allow us to function as true advisors to our clients, providing them with acquisition and disposition services, originating mortgage debt, and arranging JV equity and structured financing.”
Paul was previously the founder and President of LaPaul Partners, a Dallas-based boutique commercial real estate advisory firm.
Over the last 30 years, LaPaul Partners has specialized in the sale and financing of institutional-grade multifamily properties in Texas and throughout the southern U.S.
“I am excited to help create this new, full-service multifamily platform for Colliers’ Central Region. Rarely, do you find this type of entrepreneurial opportunity at such a large, global company,” said Chris. “Jorg and I look forward to seeing what we can achieve together.”
