John R. Ferrari, J.D.



Babson Real Estate Advisors
Wellesley, MA & New York, NY



John joined Babson Real Estate Advisors to bring his unique background of thirty-plus years of diverse business experience to a real estate services company focused on providing its clients with thoughtful, experienced-based solutions to their commercial real estate needs.

His diverse and extensive background ranges from practicing law in private practice and managing expenses for an iconic billion dollar financial services company, to managing the real estate and administrative services for major New York and New England Insurance institutions. Over the course of John’s career he has been responsible for annual budgets exceeding $100 million and he has conducted over one thousand real estate transactions in 49 states and 11 countries.

During John’s twenty-year tenure in Boston he has been referred to as one of the “Deans” of Boston’s corporate real estate community, winning awards as Corporate Real Estate Executive of the Year from two different New England Real Estate organizations.

John believes the greatest savings a Tenant can realize comes from not taking the space they do not need and the core purpose of the corporate real estate function is not solely to reduce the real estate line on the P&L, but to provide real estate solutions that best support profitable business operations.
