View All

Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors, a nationally recognized real estate brokerage and advisory firm specializing in retail property sales, announced today that Garrett Wood, president of Priority CRE and retail investment sales specialist, has joined Hanley Investment Group. The hiring of Wood expands Hanley Investment Group’s presence in Texas, supporting its clients with comprehensive market knowledge and more “boots-on-the-ground” service.

Since 2015, Wood has represented private and corporate investors in the sale of shopping centers and single-tenant net-leased properties throughout Texas. As a seventh-generation Texan, Wood’s in-depth knowledge of the Texas market and his vast network of investors inside and outside the state have been extremely valuable for his clients’ decision-making.

“Hanley Investment Group is one of the nation’s leading retail investment brokerage and advisory firms and has a strong track record in Texas,” said Wood. “I have no doubt that coupling our strengths, Hanley Investment Group’s extensive California-based investor relationships, and my deep understanding of the Texas market will be a huge advantage for our clients transacting in Texas.”

“We are excited to welcome Priority CRE and Garrett Wood as vice president to the Hanley Investment Group team,” said Ed Hanley, president of Hanley Investment Group. “Hanley Investment Group has been very active in Texas, and in the last 18 months, the company has completed the sale of 51 retail properties valued at $275 million.”

Hanley continues, “Garrett will be influential in assisting Hanley Investment Group’s growth in the Lone Star State. Garrett focuses on the sale of multi-tenant retail investments and has a strong background in market research, especially around the larger metro areas. He is also skilled at uncovering hard-to-find opportunities.”

Wood’s expertise in selling multi-tenant and single-tenant net-leased properties has helped him achieve top-producing broker status with prior firms and gave him the experience to launch his own firm in 2021, Priority CRE. Before starting Priority CRE, Wood served as vice president of investment sales with Foresite Commercial Real Estate. He has also worked with Coldwell Banker Commercial and EDGE Realty Capital Markets.

Wood grew up on his family ranch near San Angelo, Texas and graduated from Texas Tech University, Rawls College of Business in Lubbock. He is also a licensed pilot and piloted a King Air 200 aircraft for Texas Tech University’s administrators and coaches during his years at the university. He is active in the Central Texas CCIM chapter and a candidate for the CCIM designation this year.

“Our first priority is always adding value to our clients,” said Hanley. “Our expertise, proven track record, and unwavering dedication to putting our clients’ needs first continue to set us apart in the industry.”

Hanley adds, “Furthermore, having recently hired Vice Presidents Sean Cox and Alex Moore in January 2023, the addition of Garrett Wood supports the company’s vision and dedication to our clients to provide unparallel service across the nation.”

Hanley Investment Group has nearly $50 million in single-tenant and multi-tenant listings in Texas currently on the market and in the pipeline. Wood will be based in the Austin metropolitan area in the state of Texas.
