Hi, my name is David Huddleston. I’ve been a real estate broker or consultant for the sale or purchase of over 9 million SF of office, retail and industrial buildings, and 2,000 acres of development land, in 12 states. I have completed over 200 sales/purchases, supervised the development of commercial land tracts for clients, and was hired as an expert witness to represent clients in three lawsuits (my clients won, by the way). I was previously with a national firm where I was recognized as one of the top brokers nationwide. I have been a commercial real estate broker for 30 years.
Experience – I have represented sellers or buyers of 46 shopping centers, 21 office and flex properties, and 7 warehouses (over 9 million SF of buildings), and 2,000 acres of development land. My database contains 10,000 commercial real estate contacts all over the U.S.
Experience Matters – If you are an individual seller or buyer, I can help you in many ways. In commercial real estate, experience matters. I have evaluated hundreds of properties and negotiated hundreds of Letters of Intent and contracts. I’ve been through both good and bad markets. I know the right questions to ask and the things to avoid. If you are my client, I will be actively involved from start to finish, and, if you want me to, I can help coordinate things like surveys, the title commitment, selecting a closing agent, and all the things that need to be done to get a sale or purchase closed. If I represent you, you can call me any time – days, nights or weekends.
Call Me if You Want to Talk – If you want to talk about selling or buying commercial real estate, call me at (615) 310-2547. I have done a lot of business over 30 years. I track commercial real estate deals in Nashville, Brentwood, Franklin, Murfreesboro, and the Middle Tennessee area.
If you are a Seller, you are probably looking for the highest price and a smooth Closing. I return calls and work with other brokers (some brokers don’t). I can help you negotiate offers and the contract, and if you want me to, I can read the contract and make comments – over 30 years I have read hundreds of contracts, Letters of Intent, and leases, and have seen a lot of mistakes that should be avoided. The way to get the best price is to find the qualified buyer who has the greatest desire to purchase your property. Before you hire a broker, ask them how they work with other brokers. Are they willing to share the commission? Do they return broker’s phone calls? Some don’t. Also, ask them how they will market your property – ask for a marketing plan that describes how they will market your property and who they will target. Will they just send out a flyer and hope someone replies, or will they actually make calls? Ask them what they think are the main reasons a buyer will be interested in your property and why someone should buy it. You would be surprised by some of the marketing packages I see that don’t emphasize a property’s main sales points. If you want a national company involved, no problem – I can co-list with a national firm and stay in charge so you get the results you want.
If you are a Buyer, you are looking for a property that meets your needs at a fair price, and you might want the best possible deal. You don’t want to make a mistake. I can analyze alternatives and do the market research that will help you make the best decision. I can help you interpret the research and evaluate a property’s Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats.
References and What to Expect – I am glad to give you references and answer questions. You will find me to be professional, courteous, and easy to work with. It takes a lot of hard work and skill to complete as many transactions as I have. I will work on either a commission basis or hourly. I’m much better at this now than I was 20 years ago or even 10 years ago and I have access to the most important people in Nashville commercial real estate. In my 30 years as a commercial real estate broker, I’ve never been sued or sued anyone. The small photos on this page are some of the properties I have sold in the Brentwood, Cool Springs and Franklin areas.
