ViaWest Group is pleased to announce continued growth in their team by hiring Alesha M. Karlsson as their new Transaction Coordinator / Marketing Director. ViaWest has been one of the fastest growing real estate investment companies in the Valley over the last few years with over $300MM of acquisitions. This is the tenth hire in the last few months for ViaWest in order to better manage their growing portfolio of 2.5MM sf and to keep pace with its active property acquisition and development efforts.
Alesha brings 11 years of real estate and development knowledge and experience to the team at ViaWest Group. Prior to joining ViaWest, Alesha was an Executive Admin Assistant, Office Manager, Deal Manager and Commercial Transaction Coordinator for First Street Development, LLC and for Armstrong Development Properties, Inc. In these capacities with these national commercial development companies, she was primarily focused on land acquisitions, fee-for-service preferred development, build-to-suit, single and multi-tenant retail and office developments, as well as mixed use projects and property asset management.
Alesha has experience working with projects of all sizes and in all stages of development from acquisition through entitlements, constructions, asset management and disposition. She has a solid base of retail contacts and has worked on projects for many national retailers during her real estate career.
ViaWest has been a leader in the office and industrial sectors and active in the multi-family and retail sector. By continuing to add depth in retail property and residential land investment and development, ViaWest becomes one of the only companies headquartered in Phoenix that is a leader within all of these various product types.
“We have shown that we can excel at all aspects of real estate investment and development and that we are prepared to continue building momentum in growing our business and portfolio by incorporating new talent with our entrepreneurial energy and institutional quality management. With a stronger emphasis on retail development and mixed use projects, Alesha brings significant industry knowledge, contacts and experience that will make her a key member of our team going forward,” added Steven Schwarz, Founding Member of ViaWest Group.
