A lifetime committed to becoming a professional hockey player taught Steven Spinell the value of hard work, time management and teamwork. Coming from a real estate family opened his eyes to the endless opportunities for success in the industry.

After bonding with fellow Miami of Ohio alum Ben Erskine on JLL’s Suburban Tenant Representation team, Steven joined as Associate in 2016, focusing on companies in the North Market as well as national business development for JLL’s Build to Suit Practice Group. “It’s unbelievable how much detail goes into the build-to-suit process. Through years of experience and high-profile projects, John Musgjerd and Ben Erskine have mastered all the moving parts,” said Spinell.
