Newmark Knight Frank, a global commercial real estate advisory firm based in New York, has expanded its valuation and advisory practice with the addition of a Detroit team.
Tony Roberts will serve as Michigan market leader and senior managing director. Chris Maharg will be senior vice president.
Roberts will be responsible for business development, talent recruitment, client service, and oversight of Newmark’s Michigan appraisal team. He has valuation knowledge for many different property types with expertise in office, industrial, retail, and multifamily properties. He previously worked for CBRE based in California for more than a decade.
“NKF has a truly dynamic team of professionals on board, and I considered it an exciting opportunity to join them,” says Roberts. “I’m looking forward to continuing to expand the team’s footprint throughout the state of Michigan.”
Maharg will serve as team leader in the Detroit office. His focus is primarily on the valuation of income-producing retail, office, and multifamily properties throughout the state. His practice will also focus on valuations involving restaurants, automobile dealerships, medical offices, and other properties. He has more than 10 years of experience.
“Building out this office with top talent is an exciting development for our Michigan team and for our entire practice. We continue to add and retain the most skilled and experienced valuation and advisory specialists across the country,” says Helene Jacobson, valuation and advisory executive managing director and U.S. co-lead. “Tony and Chris are highly regarded by their peers for their dedication to great client service and expertise in this market, and we’re delighted to have them on the team.”
