Joshua R. Katz, Vice President

Mr. Katz joined EDGE Commercial Real Estate in December 2012 to help expand the company’s industrial services practice.  He is responsible for the leasing and sale of warehousing, distribution, manufacturing and flex/R&D property on behalf of both investors and occupants.  Mr. Katz’s specific area of expertise is in Suburban Washington, but he has been involved in projects throughout the mid-Atlantic, including the Baltimore, Fredericksburg, Richmond, Shenandoah Valley and Hampton Roads areas.

Mr. Katz began his real estate career in February 1999, first as a research manager for CBREs Suburban Washington offices, then as an industrial specialist in the Washington, D.C. office, focusing on the Suburban Maryland market.

 From July 2004 until August 2007, Mr. Katz worked at Scheer Partners, a regional real estate brokerage, consulting and investment firm.  While there, he helped Scheer Partners, a Maryland-based company, become one of the pre-eminent service providers in Northern Virginia.

 In September 2007, Mr. Katz joined Jones Lang LaSalle as that company’s first ever professional focused solely on industrial services.  Soon thereafter, Mr. Katz joined the Supply Chain and Logistics Solutions Practice, which helps its clients save time, money and mitigate risk by taking a strategic approach to real estate decision making by looking at all of the components of a company’s supply chain.

 During his tenure at JLL, Mr. Katz and his team were responsible for the marketing of approximately four million square feet of industrial and flex space in aggregate throughout the Greater Washington region, and for managing real estate procurement projects for his own clients as well as dozens of JLL corporate clients.

 During his career, Mr. Katz has participated in lease and sale transactions totaling over ten million square feet of industrial property and land, with an aggregate value in excess of $250 million.  Clients range in scope from small and mid-size local businesses and private investors to major global corporations and REITs.
