Over the course of their careers, Ballard and Delvillar have represented a variety of public and private companies, developers, life companies, pension fund advisors and condo converters on both a regional and national basis and have been involved in more than $6.5 billion of completed transactions.

He has been recognized as a top broker both in-house and by NAIOP, Costar and Central Florida Commercial Association of Realtors (CFCAR). Ballard is a graduate of the University of South Carolina, Darla Moore School of Business.

Additionally, Mr. Delvillar is a Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM).
“We are very excited about the opportunity to join the Central Florida JLL Capital Markets team,” Ballard said. “With JLL’s recent acquisition of HFF last year, our ability to tap into their extensive debt and equity capacity by way of their DUS lending and equity platform, will allow us to expand the services we provide to our clients.”
