Trinity Partners Greenville Celebrates 10 Years by Adding Brokerage and Partners

Trinity Partners Greenville is celebrating 10 years in the South Carolina market by expanding its service lines and adding several industry leaders as partners.

Headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, Trinity Partners opened its first South Carolina office in Greenville in December of 2013 with one employee and a 700,000 square foot property management portfolio. Led by Nicole Oakley, the firm steadily grew and now comprises 12 commercial real estate professionals, management of close to two million square feet of office space, including Office Park Patewood and Park 37, and client relationships with respected institutional owners like Tourmaline Capital Partners, JFR Global Investments, and Front Street Capital.

Oakley joined Trinity Partners in 2010 as a property manager overseeing a diverse portfolio of assets across Charlotte. Her exceptional work led to her promotion to senior property manager and eventual move to Greenville to open and lead Trinity Partners’ first South Carolina office as director. Oakley’s consistent track record of success in Greenville has earned her a new title: partner.

In addition to naming Oakley partner, Trinity Partners is pleased to announce the addition of three industry leaders as partners in the Greenville office: Edward Wilson, CCIM, SIOR, MCR, Walt Robinson, CCIM, SIOR, and Lakin Parr. Together they will expand Greenville’s service offerings to include a full-service brokerage platform.

“We’ve been both diligent and discerning in our search for the right team to expand what we offer in Greenville,” noted Adam Colvin, managing partner, Trinity Partners. “Nicole has done an exceptional job growing our management portfolio and reputation within the market. Our imperative was to find brokerage leadership that complements what she and her team have built while exemplifying Trinity Partners’ unique service approach and company culture.”

“Because of our property management team’s dedication hard work, we’ve had the opportunity and privilege to be an integral part of the revitalization of a large segment of Greenville’s suburban office market over the past 10 years,” Oakley said. “The expertise Edward, Walt, and Lakin bring, and our expanded service lines further cements our commitment to Greenville’s continued growth and success.”

Wilson joins as managing partner after serving in the same role at Wilson Kibler. In addition to growing and leading the Wilson Kibler office, Wilson focused on tenant and buyer representation across the region. Robinson, formerly with Wilson Kibler, brings hands-on experience working in the logistics industry to his work as an industrial broker, focused on warehouse, manufacturing, and flex assets. Parr brings over a decade of experience to Trinity Partners and specializes in the acquisition and disposition of single tenant net lease (STNL) properties, predominantly throughout the southeastern United States. Prior to Trinity Partners, Parr was with Pintail Commercial Real Estate.

“Walt, Lakin, and I see tremendous value and opportunity in Trinity Partners’ established service platform, expertise, and relationships across the Carolinas. The firm’s collaborative workstyle and culture is a refreshing approach to the industry,” said Wilson. “We’ll draw upon the entire partnership and diverse team of professionals to deliver a full-service experience to landlords, tenants, owners, and investors. The three of us are some of Greenville’s biggest fans. It’s an honor to join Trinity Partners and contribute to the region’s continued growth and success.”

Founded in Charlotte, North Carolina in 1998, Trinity Partners expanded into Raleigh in 2009 and Greenville in 2013. It opened a second South Carolina office in Columbia in 2018. The new Greenville leadership team is focused on adding both partners and brokers to the team as they expand their upstate South Carolina portfolio and client relationships and expect to make additional announcements soon.
