CBRE announced today that a four-person retail leasing team has joined CBRE’s Advisory & Transaction Services practice in Austin, Texas to expand the firm’s presence in the region.

The team is led by Will Majors, who is joining CBRE as a Senior Vice President. His team includes Vice President Carson Hawley, Senior Associate Adelaide Ehrlich, and Associate Davis Franklin. They have all joined CBRE from SRS Real Estate Partners and will focus on representing both landlords and tenants in the leasing of retail property throughout Central Texas.

“Will and his team bring with them a long track record of creative and successful outcomes for their many clients, and their business will only grow once combined with the industry-leading resources of CBRE’s platform,” said Scott Senese, Senior Managing Director for CBRE in Austin.

Mr. Majors, who previously led the Austin and San Antonio offices for SRS, brings with him 20 years of experience in the retail real estate industry and has been involved in many notable projects in the Austin market. He has been recognized as a “Heavy Hitter” by the Austin Business Journal for the last 10 years and his clients include some of the largest retailers in the U.S.

“The team and I are excited to hit the ground running at CBRE as we serve our tenant and landlord retail clients in Central Texas,” said Mr. Majors. “The future is very bright for retail in Austin, and we know that we and our clients will benefit tremendously from CBRE’s extensive platform.”

Mr. Hawley brings with him 10 years of brokerage experience, having represented dozens of tenants, landlords and land buyers across Central Texas. He is known for his strong analytical, negotiating and project management skills, having delivered exceptional results for both local and national clients.

Ms. Ehrlich and Mr. Franklin have both recently begun their real estate careers in 2019 and 2023 respectively. They will support the team on tenant and landlord representation efforts.
