Memphis, Tenn: Crye-Leike Real Estate Services announces that Jaime Henson, a commercial broker with Crye-Leike Commercial Memphis, closed a record sale in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Henson represented a buyer in the acquisition of a $10.5 million warehouse located on the opposite end of the state. With respect to the confidentiality of the private buyer and seller, the details of the transaction are not available at this time.

After joining Crye-Leike in 2018 selling residential homes, Henson learned very quickly that she preferred the business side of real estate, while working for a buyer on a historical property sale. She refocused her brokerage practice to 100 percent commercial real estate in 2019, and she has now set a career milestone with this $10.5 million deal.

"In July of 2020, I was given the assignment to represent a national buyer locating an industrial warehouse with instructions that it must be closed by Dec 31st," said Henson. "Considering the low inventory of distribution warehouses due to the spring tornadoes that ripped through Middle Tennessee, and the surge of e-commerce companies buying up warehouses, I knew I was in for a challenge; not to mention the time constraint of getting a deal done in six months."

After putting in countless hours of work, Henson was able to find the ideal location for her buyer, with the sellers representation by Bart Hardison and Michael Reid, Newmark Knight Frank.

"We toured several warehouses in both Middle Tennessee and East Tennessee," said Henson. "Ultimately, we found a 245,000 square foot industrial warehouse that was actually not even on the market for sale. After working diligently with the owner's agents, were able to get a deal done."

Henson specializes in the sale and lease of industrial warehouses, flex spaces and office buildings. Henson is a licensed broker in Tennessee and Mississippi, and she is a member of the Memphis Area Association of REALTORS (MAAR), the Tennessee Association of REALTORS (TAR) and National Association of REALTORS (NAR).
