Radius Commercial Real Estate & Investments this week announced the addition of Jim Turner to the firm’s team of commercial real estate experts.
Founded in 2002, Radius now boasts 14 agents and a support staff of nine. In addition, Radius led the market in 2012 with 40 of 85 total commercial sales, including the largest transaction managed by a local firm, the sale of 401 Chapala St. for $22.8 million.
“Jim’s reputation in Santa Barbara and the South Coast is second to none,” Radius principal and co-founder Steve Golis said. “Bringing him into the fold further strengthens our commitment to providing the most diverse, experienced team of commercial real estate specialists to serve the market.”
Turner, a UCSB graduate, is a certified commercial investment member with a broad background in national and regional commercial real estate. Early in his career he specialized in retail leasing and sales with the national firm Grubb & Ellis, and in 1989 he became vice president and director of acquisitions and leasing for Investec, where he spent nine years. Turner was with Falcon Real Estate, an advisory firm based in New York, prior to joining Latitude Commercial Real Estate in Santa Barbara in 2003.
“I am very pleased to be a part of Radius,” Turner said. “Having access to the resources of a well-respected firm like Radius is invaluable in this industry. I am looking forward to providing my clients with the very best services available in Santa Barbara.”
