T3 Advisors

David Bergeron, Managing Director (@d_bergeron) and Roy Hirshland, President of T3 Advisors (@hirshlandt3) made yet another trip west to the sunny, warmth of Palo Alto this past week.  David, a graduate of Stanford University is returning “home” to Palo Alto to launch T3’s Silicon Valley office.  Like a restaurants soft opening, the coming couple of months are in preparation for the official opening of the office in June.

We headed to Logan Airport under cloudy skies and light snow falling. After applying heavy amounts of sunscreen, we boarded JetBlue Flight 635Jetblue_legroomsm-resized-600 en route to SFO, hoping to be greated by the California Sunshine!

With a jam packed itineray that would make even the most seasoned rock star cringe, we had meetings from sun up to well into each night.  Among our meetings and adventures we;

  • Visited the offices of several venture capital firms in Silicon Valley.  T3 is a leader in helping VC firms help their portfolio make good real estate decisions and build world class workspaces” said Hirshland.
  • Met with several directors of corporate real estate of leading west coast technology companies. “We already have clients based in Northern California.  We have helped them solve a variety of real estate challenges over the years and look forward to now being able to even better serve their needs” said Bergeron.

 

  • Met with a variety of amazing candidates to join the T3 team in Palo Alto.  “We are looking for bright, client focused professionals.  Our team has a unique set of back grounds for the real estate industry.  They have to share our passion for truly understanding the business of innovative companies and becoming their partner as their long term real estate advisor” said Hirshland.
  • Had the honor and pleasure of attending a Stanford University Football practice.  It is fantastic to see student athletes who care both about academics and world class athletics.  Rare.
