YP Works Together on Lease; Grows Brokerage Team

Younger Partners brokers teamed up on an 8,423-square-foot lease for Lifecare 2.0 Management Services, LLC at Colonnade III in Addison. The tenant was represented by Bo Estes and the landlord was represented by Moody Younger, Kathy Permenter and Sean Dalton.

Bo joined the Younger Partners team in late 2019 from Colliers International, where he served as an executive vice president. He has 40 years of commercial real estate experience specializing in tenant representation in the Dallas/Fort Worth market and with national clients across the country.

“Collaboration with the land and agency leasing teams played a big role in my decision to join Younger Partners,” Bo says. “Working together to benefit our clients is ultimately the goal and this is a great place to be.”

Over the years Bo has represented such firms as Littler Mendelson, Lincoln Financial Group, Lincoln National Life Insurance, Presbyterian Healthcare Services, Henderson Engineers, Vulcan Materials and Blue Cross Blue Shield in markets across the country, with transactions totaling in in excess of 5 million square feet since the early 1980s.

“Bo consistently helps his clients determine how best to enhance their strategic operational goals through leasing, acquisition and disposition of their real estate properties,” says Younger Partners Co-Founder Moody Younger. “We have worked together over the years and he brings a wealth of experience to the company.”

“I was fortunate to work with Moody, Kathy Permenter, Sean Dalton and Trae Anderson at Grubb & Ellis and to have the opportunity to reconnect with them by joining the Younger Partners team was a

great opportunity,” Bo says. “The company culture and the entrepreneurial environment here played a big role in joining the team, along with the ability to pull from the expertise of other great brokers.  I look forward to working in a fun environment with people I enjoy being around while making some deals and helping my clients.”

Bo began his career with Hank Dickerson & Company in 1978 as an associate and later as a vice president becoming a multi-million-dollar producer in 1980, 1981, and 1982. In 1983, he joined Hines Industrial establishing a staff and leading the leasing efforts for a portfolio of 18 properties totaling 4.5 million square feet in the Dallas/Fort Worth office market and totaling more than $500,000,000 in lease transactions. Bo joined Bell & Hocker, Inc. in 1986, where he successfully negotiated leases for major tenants in some of Dallas’ most prominent office addresses. He was at Grubb & Ellis (and later, under a merger, as Newmark, Grubb, Knight, Frank) for more than 20 years before going to Colliers.

Bo graduated from the University of Arkansas. He and his wife, Shelley, have been married for 44 years. They have three sons, four grandsons and two more grandchildren (twins) on the way. He’s an avid outdoorsman enjoying hunting, and spending summers in Colorado fishing and hiking, but his most important time is spent with his family.

Bo was the fifth major addition to the Younger Partners brokerage team in 2019. He joins Greg Hoffman and Jerry Averyt as well as the investment services team of Scot Farber and Tom Strohbehn.
