In the course of a career that spans more than 25 years, Jonathan Hipp is recognized as one of the leading providers of net lease investment advisory services in the country. He joined Avison Young in 2020 as a Principal, member of the U.S. Capital Markets Executive Committee, and leader of the firm’s Net Lease Group.

Based in the firm’s Washington, DC office, Hipp has expanded and solidified Avison Young’s net lease market position, and today leads a team of senior advisors across the country who specialize in the sale of retail, office and industrial net lease assets, sale leasebacks, 1031 exchanges, and tax structured zero-cashflow transactions. Envisioning a solid year for net lease during the 2020 depths of the pandemic, Hipp collaborated with his fellow partners and turned in a market-leading year, most notably closing two structured credit tenant net-lease properties totaling more than $570 million and representing 1.4 million square feet.  Combined, the deals are noted as one of the largest in the 2020 market.  

Joining Avison Young was a natural extension of Hipp’s industry milestones. Prior to joining the organization, he was best known as founder, President, and CEO of Calkain Companies. With entrepreneurial spirit, he successfully expanded Calkain’s services to uniquely include brokerage, advisory, asset management, research, and capital markets initiatives. With a hand-picked team of professionals, Hipp grew Calkain into one of the leading forces in U.S. commercial real estate activities, completing transactions well over $12 billion in net lease volume alone.

Hipp is a sought-after expert on market conditions, and his insights have appeared in such publications as the New York Times, Forbes and Fortune magazines.  He also authors two blogs focused on capital markets and net leases on two of the industry’s leading business news websites: and Commercial Property Executive.

Hipp’s contributions to the industry have been recognized multiple times throughout the years. Both and Commercial Property Executive recently noted his achievements, naming him a Net Lease Influencer in 2020 and 2021 and nominating him for the 2021 Net Lease Executive of the Year.
