As part of a strategic effort to grow its asset and property management services, Voit Real Estate Services’ Phoenix office added Eva Bates as a Property Manager, according to Don Morrow, Managing Director of Voit’s Phoenix operations.

Coinciding with the addition of Bates, Voit has taken on an additional 1 MSF of management assignments in the Phoenix market, including a portfolio owned by Capital Commercial Investments which encompasses more than 736,000 SF in Maricopa County.

“The addition of both Eva and these new assignments is well-aligned with our strategy to continue to grow our full-service platform, which includes asset and property management for both distressed and stabilized properties,” Morrow said.

“One major difference at Voit is that our team understands real estate from an owner’s perspective. Eva’s skills are well-aligned with this distinction, as she has experience working within ownership groups, and brings an owner’s perspective to her management.”

Bates brings with her more than 17 years of experience in the commercial real estate industry, specializing in property management, construction management, tenant relations, leasing, and lease administration.

Before joining Voit, Bates served as a senior property manager for three years at Grubb & Ellis where she managed medical, office, and industrial properties. Prior to her tenure with Grubb & Ellis, Bates served as district manager at SARES-REGIS Group where she was responsible for managing the firm’s Arizona portfolio, totaling 1.7 MSF.

Earlier in her career, Bates gained her expertise in property management at PM Reality Group as a General Manager for the Phoenix City Square – a 1 MSF commercial office and retail project. In this role, she was responsible for daily management operations, including the coordination of capital renovation projects and tenant improvements, as well as management of office, engineering, and custodial staff.

Bates attended Meredith College in Raleigh, N.C. She is a certified Arizona Department of Real Estate Licensee, and is a member of the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA).
