On Demand, Outsourced Real Estate Support


Norrell (now Spherion), a $2 Billion recruiting and staffing company that provides temporary, temp-to-hire, direct-hire, and professional and executive recruitment services.


Following the unexpected resignation of Norrell’s Real Estate Manager, Galaxy Partners was asked to function as Norrel’s real estate department until a replacement could be identified and hired.  With two days’ prior notice, Galaxy stepped in and took over, encountering a significant backlog of transactions in process, dozens of unanswered field inquiries, and the loss of trust in the real estate department.

Galaxy provided a wide scope of services including:  completing dozens of transactions in process, analyzing market consolidation opportunities, negotiating new leases and lease renewals, and identifying several new field office sites in multiple markets, including Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, and New York.  Galaxy also developed an internal portfolio reporting system and served as liaison between executive management and field personnel.


Galaxy completed over 40 transactions in two months, restored trust with field personnel, and initiated strategies the Company used to organize and develop a client-service-oriented real estate department going forward.
