Goodbye to JLL, and a Fantastic Hello to Newmark!

My New San Francisco Home, One Bush Street

Hi! Just a quick update to let you know that I have accepted an offer to change companies this past month. I spent an amazing 11 years at JLL, I left on the best possible terms (I love all of my JLL people), and I will be working with Newmark going forward in San Francisco and Marin. It was incredibly complimentary to be recruited by such an outstanding firm.

I hope/ plan to get out a better email in the near future that will lay out my soon-to-be-created plan for world domination, but for now this post will have to suffice.

Thanks so much for all the love as I make this change. My cell is below, my personal website is still www.tomposer.com, and if you feel you want to reconnect in person then we should get coffee, or you can come watch me yell at 5th graders on the basketball court.

Looking forward to an exciting new stretch and hope to see all of you as soon as possible. Press release is below, thanks!
