Lee Loftis’ work across multiple real estate asset classes and areas of concentration gives him a unique, multifaceted perspective and approach to land acquisition – a much-needed quality in an industrial market where demand is outpacing supply.
“The industrial land market is moving so rapidly that available sites with zoning and utilities are diminishing quickly,” says Loftis. “For users to find real estate that meets their operational needs, they need a developer who is creative and forward-thinking when sourcing new land opportunities.”
As National Director of Land Acquisitions, Lee locates and acquires land sites for the firm’s speculative and build-to-suit industrial development projects. He works with both brokers and landowners to locate and vet on- and off-market properties in both existing and emerging logistics markets, including Dallas, Austin, Columbus, Savannah, Charleston, Nashville, Charlotte, Lakeland and Phoenix.
Lee has more than 15 years of experience in land acquisition and commercial real estate brokerage. He joined Mohr Capital from Copart Inc., where he served as a real estate acquisition specialist, sourcing and negotiating developed and undeveloped acquisition opportunities. During his time with Copart, Loftis identified, entitled and closed on $93 million of industrial property – $70 million of which was off market.
Previously in his career, Lee served as vice president with SRS Real Estate Partners, senior associate with Revere Commercial Realty and associate with Presidio Realty.
Lee holds a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from The University of Texas at Austin and is a licensed real estate broker in the State of Texas. In his free time, Lee volunteers with i9 Sports in Fort Worth, Texas, and enjoys spending time on Eagle Mountain Lake with his wife and two sons.
