Savills Studley has hired NFL star Jeff Feagles as managing director at its New Jersey operation.
Feagles played in the National Football League (NFL) for 22 seasons as a punter for the New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles, Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks and, most recently, the New York Giants. Known as the most durable punter in NFL history, Feagles retired from football in 2009 with two Pro Bowl selections and a Super Bowl victory under his belt.
In his new role, Feagles will focus on the representation of office and industrial tenants throughout New Jersey. He joins Savills Studley with 10 years of real estate experience, including expertise in office and industrial tenant representation, investment sales, mixed-use retail sales and restaurant tenant representation.
Prior to joining the firm, Feagles developed the commercial division and led a team of agents at Keller Williams Village Square Realty. Earlier in his real estate career, he worked at Marron Gildea & Donohue Realtors and John L. Scott Real Estate. He graduated from the University of Miami with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree.
“Savills Studley’s culture of entrepreneurialism and its legacy as the top tenant rep firm in the business make it the ideal home for me as I continue my commercial real estate career,” said Feagles. “I look forward to working alongside the firm’s best-in-class brokers and leveraging its global platform to better serve my clients.”
“In real estate and in football, Jeff has developed a reputation of excellence,” said Gregg Najarian, senior vice president and branch manager at Savills Studley. “His competitiveness, focus and dedication have made him an outstanding broker and we are thrilled to have him join the firm.”
Savills Studley specializes in tenant representation. Founded in 1954, the firm pioneered the conflict-free business model of representing only tenants in their commercial real estate transactions.
