Professional Experience

In July 2019, CBRE Group, Inc. (NYSE: CBRE) acquired CBRE|MEGA, a long-standing joint affiliate and the leading full-service commercial real estate services operation in Omaha.
Jim Maenner is a Vice President with CBRE, specializing in land brokerage and development analysis. Jim is also a member of the company’s office brokerage specialty group. In conjunction with Jim’s brokerage activities, he has produced one of the largest data bases of commercial real estate transactions in the Metro Omaha area. Jim utilizes this data base in his work and is often consulted by other CBRE brokers, local appraisers and officials from both the Douglas and Sarpy County Assessor Offices for insights into commercial real estate activities and trends in the Metro Omaha area. Jim publishes a monthly newsletter regarding Metro Omaha commercial real estate activities to over 600 recipients.

Prior to his affiliation with CBRE, Jim served as an officer and head of the trust real estate division at First National Bank of Minneapolis from 1979 to 1983. In 1984, Jim joined his family’s real estate company. Then, in 1991, Jim along with CBRE broker, David Maenner, established the Maenner Real Estate Company after purchasing the commercial brokerage and property management divisions of their father’s company, Maenner Co. The company merged with CBRE|MEGA (now CBRE) in July of 1999. 

Jim’s recent significant transactions include the sale of the Omaha Steel Castings property to the University of Nebraska Medical Center, representing NorthStar Financial in two separate build-to-suit office buildings, real estate consulting for several large Omaha real estate owners, and the purchase and sale of real property assets for local, regional and national clients.
