Sperry Van Ness Asset Management has its Dallas Regional Management Office located at 5057 Keller Springs Road in Addison, Texas with DataVest | Sperry Van Ness. Upon the acquisition of approximately 750,000 square feet of Dallas office, office-flex, and industrial properties sold to its sister company SVN Equities by DataVest | Sperry Van Ness, the firm set up its own in-house managerial staff to handle the Dallas Regional properties. The management office is headed by Russell Robertson. He is assisted in his portfolio management activities by Brandon Burrows, the assistant property manager.

Russell Robertson joined the Sperry Van Ness Asset Management team in June, 2009 as Portfolio Manager. With the growth and expansion of SVN commercial property ownership in the DFW area exceeding 800,000 sf, Russell opened the Dallas Regional office directly for SVN, overseeing an extensive portfolio of office and industrial properties previously managed by 3rd party companies. With more than 20 years of commercial real estate experience in property and asset management on a variety of asset classes and types including office, industrial, retail, multi-family and even hotel properties, Russell’s intent is to utilize his experience in bringing “value added” opportunities to every detail in professionally managing his client’s real estate.

Prior to joining Sperry Van Ness, Russell spent most of his career with MetLife Real Estate Investments and the Jackson-Shaw Company in property and asset management serving both firms for more than 10 years each. His career path is diverse and has allowed him to serve in a variety of roles and responsibilities including leasing, construction, capital improvements, loan servicing, dispositions and property management operations. His property and asset responsibilities have included everything from aging class C buildings to Class A properties valued at more than $75M in Dallas and other Southwest regions.
