ATLANTA– Transwestern’s Atlanta office today announced it has expanded its Investment Services Group with retail investment sales specialist Fred Victor. As vice president, he will specialize in the brokerage of retail assets with a focus on grocery-anchored shopping centers located throughout the Southeast.

“Fred is a highly respected commercial real estate professional with a solid track record spanning 13 years,” said Bruce Ford, president of the Southeast. “Fred’s expertise in the retail sector allows Transwestern to continue to enhance the services we provide to our clients.”
