Phoenix, Ariz. – Mark Seale, Avison Young Principal and Director of Brokerage Services for the company’s Arizona region, announced today that Jeffrey Folger and Drew Sampson have joined the company in Phoenix.
Effective immediately, Folger and Sampson become Associate brokers based in the company’s Phoenix office. They will continue to focus on their specialty of office landlord and tenant representation while also helping the company expand its footprint across Arizona.
“We are happy to have Jeff and Drew join our team,” comments Seale. “They will provide office agency leasing and tenant representation services and will help facilitate the leasing goals and objectives of our corporate and institutional office owners throughout Arizona. We are excited to grow our Arizona operations and expand this critical service line within our full-service menu of brokerage services.”
Folger and Sampson will work closely with the office’s two top-producing Principals, Seale and Wally Hale.
Prior to joining Avison Young, Folger spent two years working in commercial brokerage in Baton Rouge, LA. Originally from the Valley, he moved back to Arizona in 2018 to join Avison Young and focus his career on his dynamic hometown.
Adds Hale: “Jeff Folger is strategic, driven and takes great pride in exceeding his client’s expectations.”
Folger holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Louisiana State University.
Sampson has more than a decade of successful sales and marketing experience and comes to Avison Young from Schaeffer’s Oil, where he focused on business development. Prior to that, he was a marketing consultant for Bonneville Media and 98.7 The Peak radio where he helped companies grow their brands and businesses, winning multiple awards along the way. Sampson is a Phoenix native. After high school he received a baseball scholarship to Azusa Pacific University. In 2009 he graduated Cum Laude for Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in marketing and communications.
Seale concludes: “The Arizona office continues to grow, having added institutional and large-occupier-representation service lines and full-scale project management in the past 12 months alone. Growth will not stop there, as Avison Young’s Arizona region is looking to add more brokers and professionals to further strengthen its brokerage, project management, property management and facilities maintenance service lines in 2019.”
