NAI Partners, the commercial real estate services business of Partners Real Estate Company, announced that veteran Austin-based office leasing executive Robert Paine has joined the company’s Austin office as Senior Vice President of Office Project Leasing, which is part of its Landlord Services offering.

Mr. Paine comes to NAI Partners from Repco Realty, a boutique commercial real estate firm based in Dripping Springs, just west of Austin. Prior to that, he spent many years at Capridge Partners, where he was responsible for leasing and managing a portfolio of 3.5 million sq. ft. Mr. Paine has represented buildings owned by Capridge Partners, Stockbridge Capital Partners, and Walton Street Capital. Mr. Paine has served in various community leadership positions including but not limited to the board of Commercial Broker’s Association and has also had heavy involvement in the Downtown Austin Alliance.
