NGKF Capital Markets continues to attract top talent in the Mid-Atlantic region as retail investment sales specialist Mat Adler joins the Washington, DC, office. The DC native brings more than 10 years of national relationships, deep institutional knowledge and local expertise to his new role as managing director.
Adler expands NGKF’s retail investment sales platform to the Mid-Atlantic, working with veteran broker Geoff Millerd, who recently joined NGKF Capital Markets in Boston as executive managing director and is a part of the Boston-based team led by Robert Griffin, U.S. Head of Capital Markets for NGKF.
“We see strong synergies between the New England and Mid-Atlantic markets, as evidenced by the fact that we have already executed multiple high-profile transactions for clients along the eastern seaboard,” said Millerd. “Mat’s expertise will be of great value to clients in executing our proven team-based, 360-degree investment sales approach with full-time, on the ground coverage.”
“Mat is a retail power player who adds significant talent to expand NGKF Capital Markets in the Mid-Atlantic and positions the region for further growth,” said Brett Hunsaker, executive vice president and regional managing director of NGKF in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.
Prior to joining NGKF, Adler helped launch the retail Capital Markets platform at KLNB Retail in 2010. Throughout his career, he has closed over 50 transactions totaling $2 billion in the Mid-Atlantic. Adler’s experience in the private space combined with the institutional strength of the Griffin/Millerd team now provides NGKF with the platform and expertise to handle a wide range of retail transactions for its clients throughout the region.
“I’m delighted to join an organization that offers a Capital Markets platform with deep, and growing, national resources,” said Adler. “I’m looking forward to working collaboratively with Geoff and our experts nationwide as we expand the retail investment sales practice in Washington, DC, and throughout the Mid-Atlantic.”
Adler is joined by Associate Director Christopher Lawrence. Specializing in the disposition of retail assets in the greater Mid-Atlantic region, Mr. Lawrence has assisted in the sourcing, valuation, marketing and sale of over $500 million in investment properties from Virginia to Maine for a diverse range of clients.
The addition of Adler’s team is another step in NGKF’s expansion of its national retail investment sales platform. The firm also recently added eight professionals in San Diego and Newport Beach, led by Executive Managing Director Pete Bethea, who specialize in the sale and leasing of suburban retail product in Southern California and the western region.
