NEW YORK, Dec. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Avison Young, the world's fastest-growing commercial real estate services firm, continues to build upon its long-term relationship with Professional Physical Therapy (Professional), a leading outpatient, private provider of physical and hand therapy and rehabilitation services. Since 2013, they have arranged 19 transactions for the company in locations throughout New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
Professional Physical Therapy has undergone a rapid expansion over the last several years and the Avison Young account team led, by Principal, Michael Leff, has helped support this growth by finding and securing well-located and centralized spaces that meet their needs as a physical and hand therapy services provider.
During 2016 alone, the Avison Young team worked on numerous leases for the company across the Tri-State area, securing nearly 50,000 square feet of space that now serves as regional Professional clinic facilities.
The Avison Young team has brokered several other deals for Professional over the last four years, including a lease at 333 Earle Ovington Boulevard in Long Island that now serves as its corporate headquarters.
"Collaboration is essential to our continued success with Professional Physical Therapy—from our very first assignment we worked closely with their team to understand their unique space requirements as experts in the field of rehabilitation and then identifying the right locations in each individual market," said Leff. "It is gratifying to see that our strategic guidance over the last several years has played a key role in supporting the company's continued expansion. We have several other transactions in the pipeline for Professional and look forward to continuing our work with them through next year and beyond."

"This is why it is so critical for us to develop the right partnerships with companies such as Avison Young, who understands and helps us achieve our goals and better serve our patients and their communities.
