Retail Investment Expert Adam Howells joins JLL Dallas0 Comment
As Dallas continues its strong momentum forward with one of the highest levels of retail construction in the nation and proportional absorption rates, JLL stands poised to answer growing demand for retail investment sales expertise in the North Texas market.
JLL today announced the firm has hired industry veteran Adam Howells to lead its retail capital markets practice in Dallas. Howells joins the firm as a Managing Director, partnering with JLL’s Capital Markets leadership in the market including real estate investment banking Managing Directors Randy Fleisher and Tim Jordan to strengthen the firm’s retail investment sales client service offerings. In addition, the firm has also hired Jace Hinderland as a Vice President. Howells and Hinderland will also work closely with Managing Director Clay Smith, who leads the firm’s Retail Brokerage practice in Dallas.
“Adam has a strong reputation as one of the top retail investment sales brokers in Dallas, with more than two decades of experience guiding institutional owners, developers and private investors as they seek to bring their retail assets to market. After working together professionally for the past 15 years, I am looking forward to partnering from within the same firm. He and Jace will be a key addition as we seek to drive significant growth for our Capital Markets clients in the region.” – Randy Fleisher
The hiring of Howells and Hinderland comes just one month after JLL added Naveen Jaggi as President of JLL’s Retail Brokerage. The firm also has retail investment sales experts in Houston, the Northeast, the Southeast and the Midwest.

Prior to UCR, he was an Associate Vice President with Rockwood Real Estate Advisors, as well as a competing brokerage prior to that. Hinderland received his Bachelor of Business Administration degree in finance and economics from Southern Methodist University. He is a member of the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) and serves on the Convention Program Committee for Texas.
