Get to Know Jose Blanc

Jose Blanc, Senior Associate – Acquisitions, shares why he decided to pursue a career in commercial real estate, details on our recent West End at Eldridge multifamily deal, and the things he loves outside of work.

 

Describe your role at Westmount. What are some of your day-to-day duties? Is there a specific region of the U.S. that you specialize in (for vetting/sourcing potential deals)?

I assist with the acquisitions of multifamily investments across the Sun Belt States – primarily Texas and Florida. This entails everything from identifying potential investment opportunities, working with brokers, underwriting, researching, and more. I also provide training and guidance to our associates and analysts.

 

You were the one that found the West End at Eldridge multifamily deal, correct? What was that process like and were there any challenges or surprises you encountered while working on the deal?

Yes, along with Scott Ferguson. Westmount at Eldridge is an off-market opportunity which we are very excited about. This is a value-add investment with a great story behind it!

Scott and I spent a lot of time searching for the right investment opportunity in Houston and believe Westmount at Eldridge is it. The submarket is currently experiencing strong occupancy and tremendous rent growth post pandemic – a trend we expect to continue.

 

How would you describe the culture and atmosphere of Westmount? What is your favorite thing about working here?

Westmount has a strong camaraderie. The firm focuses on opportunities for collaboration, educational growth, and networking. There is a great work/life balance which I truly enjoy.

 

What lead you into a career in commercial real estate?

Ever since I can remember I’ve had a strong interest in both global business and finance.  Real estate, specifically, has always been a major sector of interest, especially in Texas, where the economy continues to thrive.

 

Tell us a little about your life outside of work. What kind of hobbies or interests do you have?

I am passionate about fitness, golf, and tennis. I also enjoy traveling and have been fortunate enough to visit and live in countries across Europe and South America.
