SRS Real Estate Partners Adds Established Investment Sales Professional to New D.C. Office

Ed Laycox joins as vice president for the National Net Lease Group and the Investment Properties Group

DALLAS (September 30, 2020) – SRS Real Estate Partners is pleased to announce that Ed Laycox has joined as vice president in the Washington D.C. office as part of the National Net Lease Group and the Investment Properties Group. He focuses on retail investment sales in the Mid-Atlantic and will be the fifth team member to join the team and new office established earlier this year.

Ed joins SRS with more than 20 years of experience in retail and commercial real estate. Most recently serving as president for Urban Acre Investments, a company which Ed formed, he specialized in urban retail, anchored retail, and single-tenant net-leased retail properties. Ed began his career at Marcus & Millichap where he managed the Special Asset Services division in the Mid-Atlantic and closed more than 100 transactions totaling over $300 million. Ed also formerly served as the director of the Investment Services Team at Colliers International and managed a variety of retail assets across the Mid-Atlantic.


“Ed is a great addition to our growing Washington D.C. office,” said Andrew Fallon, executive managing director for the National Net Lease Group and market leader in Washington D.C. “His mix of product type, from urban retail to multi-tenant shopping centers, complements our core net lease business well. We are very excited to welcome another investment sales professional with Ed’s pedigree and industry experience, and we are confident that his addition will allow us to better serve our clients.”

In early 2020, SRS opened the Washington D.C. office which established SRS’ presence in the nation’s capital, and welcomed a highly-regarded investment sales team which is now five team members strong.
