We met up with JLL's red tie masters  Mike Dolan  and  Ryan Fetz(son of JLL's John Fetz) during the Million Dollar Club party at the InterContinental Hotel in Buckhead. We asked John about what he's seeing with tenant activity. ?I still haven't seen the jobs. I haven't seen the organic growth  yet,? he says. ?But the beauty of it is no one's giving anything back yet.?

King Realty's  Sim Doughtie tells us the industrial market is clearly healthier in 2012. Even smaller  bread-and-butter deals are getting done. (We usually like to start with bread-and-butter deals, then transition into a big meat-and-potatoes deal, and then finish it off with a small sweet deal of some kind.) Between big box tenants searching for those 500k SF or more spaces and tenants 20k SF or smaller, the activity level between both is percolating. ?And activity has been strong,? he says.
