Shannon AllenTo service occupiers and investors’ increasing needs for real estate expertise in the Southeast, JLL today announced the expansion of its platform in Alabama with the addition of Shannon Tyndall and Allen Garstecki. Tyndall and Garstecki join JLL as Vice Presidents, and bring more than 20 years of combined experience to the firm. They will be based in the firm’s Mobile, Ala. office, bolstering the existing practice that JLL built last year when it added Gulf Coast Retail Brokerage Lead Josh Burmeister and Vice President Buff Teague. The team provides retail and office expertise throughout Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and the Florida Panhandle.


“The JLL Gulf Coast retail team is in growth mode as the market rebounds with strong job growth. Shannon’s background as a corporate real estate manager gives her a unique perspective and her ability to understand a retailer’s sensitivities and processes will further enhance our strategic counsel to retailers as they look to expand in the market,” said Burmeister.

Before joining JLL, Tyndall was Vice President of Real Estate for Books-A-Million based in Birmingham, Ala. She was responsible for site selection and negotiating new stores for both the Books-A-Million and 2nd & Charles concepts, across the entire U.S. with most of the expansion being in the East. Prior to Books-A-Million, Tyndall was a Senior Director in the Executive Suite industry working for Corporate Office Center, which was then acquired by Regus. She is an active member of the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC).


“Allen brings extensive office and industrial tenant representation, disposition and leasing experience that will strengthen our Gulf Coast presence and round out our platform of services in the market. His diverse real estate background makes him an invaluable asset to our team,” added Teague.

Before joining JLL, Garstecki was at a global commercial real estate firm where he focused primarily on office tenant representation and agency leasing.  He holds a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Alabama.  He is an active member of the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties (NAIOP).
