Next Generation Honoree: TenantBase’s Brents Herron Ahead of the Curve
Brents Herron is a service-minded leader that is genuine in his goal to help his clients and colleagues succeed. As the regional director for the Southeast at TenantBase in Nashville, Herron is responsible for growing business in the region by overseeing the service, delivery, sales process, business development and recruitment and retention of CRE brokers.
Herron, 33, successfully transitioned from a hospitality and residential real estate background to a broker at TenantBase, and has since moved up through the ranks at the firm as a top producer. He is now overseeing sales operations in three major markets.
An individual who thinks ahead of the curve, Herron was able to identify the impact that similar technology had made in the residential space with firms such as Redfin, and see how that would transfer to CRE. He was able to quickly take a different approach to providing tenant representation services, and work with underserved small to mid-size companies in their office space search and lease process.
These are just a few of the reasons we chose Herron to be one of the Atlanta and Southeast region 2019 Next Generation Award Winners. Connect Media’s third annual Next Generation Awards recognize young leaders in the commercial real estate industry who are likely to be influential for years to come.
