DALLAS, June 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Three retail real estate industry veterans have announced the launch of Trivanta, a real estate advisory firm specializing in the disposition of net leased property. Bob Moorhead, Joe Caputo, and Mark Wheeler have joined forces as managing partners, boasting a collective 60 years of industry experience and sale transactions valued at over $2.4 billion.
Trivanta, headquartered in Dallas, specializes in seller representation and works with build-to-suit developers, existing owners of net leased property, and tenants who want to sell their real estate and lease it back on a long term basis, commonly known as a sale-leaseback. Assignments range from marketing single assets to large portfolios nationwide.
Moorhead and Caputo came together in 2011 at EXP Realty Advisors, where they built their team and marketing platform. In 2014 alone, the pair closed over 100 sale transactions. Wheeler also brings a track record of success in all areas of retail real estate, accentuated by firsthand experience in the roles of tenant, franchise owner and build-to-suit developer. Prior to Trivanta, Wheeler founded Retail Resource Group, a full-service tenant outsource real estate solution.
"We've invested heavily in research tools and personnel, and our national and singularly focused approach to brokerage allows us to identify the most likely buyers of net leased property and spot market trends before they occur," said Caputo.
Trivanta's principals and senior advisors gained experience serving on the executive teams of high growth retail and restaurant companies including Blockbuster, TGI Friday's, Harbor Freight Tools, Starbucks, Boston Market, Radio Shack and Einstein's/Noah's Bagel.
"As former tenants, we understand how site selection decisions are made and what makes a location successful," said Wheeler. "We have vast tenant relationships, and this network creates a valuable web that extends throughout the industry. We have direct access to information from the tenants themselves that is not readily available to the typical investment sales professional."
In addition to its Dallas headquarters, Trivanta has offices in Los Angeles and Austin, Texas, with plans to open in several more U.S. markets. Trivanta's initial focus is investment sales, but it is continuously building its platform in anticipation of offering new and synergistic real estate services.
