Further emphasizing an exciting period of growth, Cushman & Wakefield welcomes its newest broker focused on tenant representation to its Austin, Texas office. Chris Peddie brings his enthusiasm for being part of Austin’s unprecedented transformation to a team of commercial real estate experts and leaders.
Prior to this position, Chris worked in mortgage lending for three years and in sales at Dell. Through these experiences of managing pipelines, fostering relationships and focusing on “moving the ball to the end-zone,” he brings a unique ability to deliver superior client service to his new role. Commercial real estate is also a natural career transition for Chris, as his father is a long-time and successful CW broker in Houston. “I always knew it would be my career and after gaining valuable experience in other service-oriented sectors, I’m thrilled to be returning home to an industry I’ve known all my life,” Chris stated.
Chris graduated from Louisiana State University with a Bachelor of Science in economics. He’s excited to engross himself in the CW Austin culture which emphasizes brokers and staff personally contributing to the community. Within days of starting he signed up to be a delivery driver on the company’s Meals on Wheels route.
It’s this innate sense of service which draws Chris to brokerage, as well. “I’m very passionate about being active and involved in building a better Austin and shaping the city of tomorrow,” he said. “I’m looking forward to being part of a team which helps companies and organizations through some of the most important business decisions that they will ever face. Let’s get started!”
