Broker softball has been an Atlanta tradition for over 30 years. Even with the intense heat on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, teams from Robert Pattillo Properties, Cushman & Wakefield, Rooker, Ackerman & Co., Jones Lang LaSalle, CB Richard Ellis, Richard Bowers & Co., NAI Brannen Goddard and Carter, among others, showed up for their chance to hit a home run on the Pace Academy ball fields off of DeFoors Ferry Road in Buckhead.
Official rules state that all players must have a real estate license. Each game lasts either six innings or one hour, whichever comes first!
However, at Lincoln Property Company Southeast on behalf of Colony Realty Partners’ office portfolio of 3405 Piedmont, 3333 Riverwood, 1117 Perimeter Center and 730 Midtown, we believe it is important to provide players with proper hydration and fuel. That’s why LPC Southeast sponsored the food and drink for both evenings. Players and their entourage enjoyed some pulled chicken and pork sandwiches provided by Billy Jack’s BBQ & Shrimp Co. And yes, there was maybe even a keg or two of cold beer at the end of the buffet line!
Below is David Danhof of LPC Southeast posing with Doug Smith of Seefried Industrial Properties. As the softball league commissioner, Doug is responsible for organizing the events. Cheers to a job well done!
“Broker softball is a great event with good camaraderie in a relaxed social setting,” said Danhof. “It is one event when you can be sure the discussion will revolve around sports injuries and real estate deals.”
