For 14 years, he worked with the same group under the following national brokerage platforms: Highwood’s Properties, Cushman and Wakefield, Colliers International, and Cassidy Turley. Under Land’s leadership, Equitable Property Company offers services reminiscent of those corporations, while providing the quality and flexibility found in a boutique commercial real estate firm.
A highly experienced broker, Land oversees leasing responsibilities for over 500,000 square feet of office and retail properties in Middle Tennessee on behalf of third party landlords and partnerships of which he is Principal. He has represented tenants in the leasing and purchase of over 4 million square feet of office, retail, and medical space in more than 14 states.
