Transwestern Real Estate Services Acquires Second DC Tenant-Representation Firm

Houston, TX-based Transwestern Real Estate Services has completed the acquisition of West, Lane & Schlager, a 26-year-old commercial real estate firm exclusively representing tenants in the greater Washington, DC market.

The transaction, which adds 10 team members to the firm’s tenant advisory and workplace solutions platform in the Mid-Atlantic region, comes on the heels of Transwestern Real Estate Services acquisition of MGA, Inc., which added 11 team members and a diverse portfolio of clients in Washington, DC and nationwide.

“Over the past 26 years, West, Lane & Schlager has earned a reputation for representing tenants from a focused, team-centric approach. Joining Transwestern’s industry-leading enterprise enables us to better serve our clients with broader resources and a deeper bench of specialists,” said Eric West, West, Lane & Schlager co-founder and principal. West and Rich Lane will serve in EVP roles at Transwestern Real Estate Services.

West, Lane & Schlager began operating as Transwestern Real Estate Services on January 25, 2023.
