The Austin office of CBRE Group Inc. will increase its market clout in the retail real estate sector with the announcement last week that the international brokerage titan had acquired UCR — a Dallas-based brokerage firm with national cachet.

Four brokers and three supporting staff will move into CBRE’s Austin office at 100 Congress Ave. this summer.

“The whole office is excited about the change and move and looks forward to being able to use CBRE’s platform and resources to provide even better services to their clients,” said Valerie Maniscalco, marketing communications manager for UCR in Dallas.

Locally, the Austin team oversees leasing for the Hill Country Galleria in Bee Cave, the Shops at Lakeline Village near Lakeline Mall in Northwest Austin and the Shops at Forest Commons in Round Rock, as well as other properties around the metro area.
