Morristown, N.J.

The Hampshire Companies, a full-service, private real estate investment firm with equity in assets valued at over $2.5 billion, experienced strong levels of leasing activity throughout 2011, executing 2,443,944 square feet of lease transactions during the year despite continued uncertain market and employment conditions.

“Our experience and understanding of the marketplace allowed us to leverage a variety of opportunities throughout 2011,” said James E. Hanson II, President and CEO of The Hampshire Companies. “We put a consistent effort behind acquiring, developing, and maintaining quality space and aggressively working with tenants to meet their needs. We saw a strong surge of activity in the fourth quarter as we announced our long-term lease deal with Realogy, which offers added optimism for the year ahead. As the economy continues to grow, we will begin to see more signs of positive absorption in 2012.”
