Orlando – SRS Real Estate Partners has announced the addition of prominent investment property sales leaders Sue Hightower, CCIM, and William T. Snow II, CCIM, as the newest members of the SRS Real Estate Partners team.

Hightower and Snow will serve as vice president and senior associate, respectively. They will work on a national level to promote the single-tenant investment sales business as ideal for passive buyers looking for a steady income stream.

Prior to joining the firm, Hightower was vice president of Investment Property Sales for GE Capital Solutions, where she specialized in sale-leaseback financing and maximizing net income through the sale of investment properties. She brings 15 years of experience in selling and managing single-tenant net leased assets and was ranked as highest-volume sales producer from 2001 to 2006. Previously, Hightower served as dispositions manager for GE Capital Solutions. In this position, she determined the best use for sites that became vacant due to bankruptcy or tenant workouts.

“I feel truly honored to join a retail real estate firm with such a renowned reputation,” Hightower said. “I believe in building long-term relationships with clients, and SRS Real Estate Partners offers an unsurpassed customer experience based on trust, integrity and teamwork.”

Snow joins SRS Real Estate Partners from GE Capital Solutions, as well, where he served as an investment property sales representative under Hightower’s management for eight years. While there, Snow developed and implemented a nationwide sales strategy for single-tenant triple-net leased restaurant properties. Prior to this position, Snow was a transaction manager for CNL Restaurant Properties, where he received Top Gun, Teamwork, Innovation and Champions Awards. Over the course of his career, Snow has completed and closed more than 200 commercial real estate transactions nationwide.

John Artope, senior vice president and market leader Orlando for SRS Real Estate Partners, said, “We are pleased to welcome Sue and William to our office, as they both offer a wealth of knowledge and expertise. They are widely recognized as leaders in single-tenant triple-net investment services, and we are fortunate to have them on our team.”

SRS Real Estate Partners CEO and President Clay Smith also looks forward to Hightower and Snow’s contributions. “At SRS Real Estate Partners, we are positioning ourselves for long-term growth, so we will be ready when the economy and real estate market rebound,” he said. “As our business evolves, we need to extend our team of leaders who have proven themselves as some of the best in the industry. I am confident that Sue and Bill’s extensive experience will bring a new dimension to our team – and our future.”
