Team from Lee & Associates, Hines Launches Own Houston-Based Real Estate Firm

April 28, 2021

(HOUSTON, TEXAS, May 5 2021) For years, Reed Vestal, former principal and partner at Lee & Associates, and Jamie Poirier, former associate at Hines, talked about forming their own commercial real estate company. But it wasn’t until April of this year that that long-discussed plan came to fruition with the launch of Junction Commercial Real Estate. Poirier and Vestal say that the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic helped get their new company off the ground.

“The conversation about forming the company started pre-Covid,” Vestal said. “It really allowed us to figure things out because we had more flexibility in our schedules to put the pieces together.”

The two men met while pursuing a master’s in real estate degree at Texas A&M University and liked the idea of teaming up to pursue land and industrial deals in and around Houston. But both felt they needed more “real world” experience before striking out on their own.

Once they graduated, Vestal and Poirier joined Lee & Associates and Hines, respectively, and went on to find success negotiating deals on behalf of clients.
