Alex Hill joined Patterson Real Estate Advisory Group in the summer of 2013, and is currently a Director focused on capital markets placement and advisory. Assignments include capital procurement (debt, equity, mezzanine, joint venture), as well as strategic counsel and advisory work for developers, investors and operators of multifamily, hotel, office, retail, industrial and land projects.
Since joining Patterson, Alex has been involved in more than 70 completed transactions with capital placed in excess of $1.4 billion. Financing structures have included ground-up construction, renovation, acquisition, and refinance with structured mezzanine/preferred, joint venture equity, and senior debt. The transactions have included almost every product type, including office, multifamily, hotel, industrial and retail. These closings have touched most major markets in the Southeast, namely Atlanta, Nashville, Charleston, and Charlotte, and stretched as far west as Oklahoma City, and south to Key West. In addition to immense structuring and transaction experience, Alex has developed deep relationships with a full variety of capital providers across the country, including life insurance companies, private equity and debt funds, regional and national banks, REITs and other private investors.
Prior to joining Patterson, Alex worked for SunTrust Robinson Humphrey’s Structured Real Estate group, which acquires and develops single tenant real estate assets primarily from investment banking clients, issues lease-backed notes and selectively markets properties to institutional and private investors. For three years, the position gave Alex hands-on experience with originations, structuring, debt raising, deal closing and dispositions. While at SunTrust, Alex participated in over $500 million of real estate net-lease transactions, including office, industrial and retail properties. Previously, Alex was an intern for Cousins Properties, a publically traded REIT in Atlanta, GA. Here Alex learned valuable skills and had exposure to office and retail leasing, asset management, development, property management, marketing and accounting. Alex also worked as a banking assistant for First Madison Bank & Trust in Athens, Georgia to learn finance from the perspective of a bank before embarking on a career in real estate.
