Greenville, South Carolina (January 2021) – NAI Earle Furman, a leading full-service commercial real estate firm, recently welcomed James Malm to its brokerage team in Greenville, South Carolina.

James started with NAIEF in January of 2021, and he partners with Shareholder Tom Daniel in evaluating potential development opportunities and structuring deal equity with a focus on the industrial sector. Prior to joining the firm, James spent three years with Hughes Development Corporation working as a project manager. In this role, he was responsible for a broad range of financing, development, asset management, and property management activities. He also assisted the team in the redevelopment of the Bull Street District, a 181-acre site located in Columbia, South Carolina. Before moving to the Upstate, James spent time consulting for Booz Allen Hamilton and working for a congressional committee on Capitol Hill.

In 2017, NAI Earle Furman, serving the Upstate of South Carolina, and North Carolina’s NAI Piedmont Triad joined forces to form a creative commercial real estate collaboration across state lines. The teams expanded their market footprint in 2019 by partnering with the newly rebranded NAI Columbia (formerly Avant) group operating in the South Carolina Midlands. This strategic alliance equally benefits all three firms with additional manpower, expanded resources, and ever-evolving cross-market projects fueled by combined expertise.

Individually, each firm has been an active presence in its market for over three decades, and together they share an engaging environment defined by teamwork, guidance, and growth.
