Newmark announces the addition of one of the area’s top-performing capital markets teams as part of its expansion into Richmond and the Southern Virginia region. Executive Managing Directors Will Bradley and Mark Williford will co-lead the firm’s central and southern Virginia capital markets platform, bringing a successful track record of representing institutional and private clientele in the acquisition and disposition of more than $2 billion of industrial, retail and office assets.
“Newmark is aggressively pursuing the industry’s best talent as we solidify our position as the top capital markets firm in the country. Opportunities to expand exist in the greater Virginia region, notably in Richmond, Norfolk, Charlottesville and the I-81 Corridor,” said Allison DiGiovanni, Executive Vice President and Market Leader of Newmark’s Mid-Atlantic Region. “We are thrilled to have widely respected, proven professionals like Will and Mark at the forefront of our expansion.”
Prior to Newmark, Bradley and Williford served as Richmond, Virginia-based top-producing capital markets professionals for Colliers. The duo’s excellent command of the region makes them the go-to resource for investors looking to break into Virginia markets, where they have sold over $1.5B to new-to-market capital to the region. Their move to Newmark represents Newmark’s continued focus on sourcing and attracting the industry’s best investment sales talent.
“It’s been impressive to see the region’s strong demographic trends and business-friendly fundaments drive expanding demand from a wide variety of institutional and private capital from across the country. By coupling our regional expertise and experience with the powerful capital markets platform at Newmark, we will further reinforce our ability to deliver exceptional value and service to our clients,” said Bradley.
“Newmark has assembled top-tier real estate talent across the country spanning all service lines, which the market has noticed. As we navigate the current and future real estate cycles, Newmark’s thoughtful long-term capital markets vision empowers our team to provide the best client service and outcomes, added Williford. “The combination of our team’s regional expertise and Newmark’s broader platform takes the value we bring our clients to an entirely new level, unmatched in our market. We are incredibly excited to join Newmark and collaborate with our new colleagues nationwide.”
