Commercial Real Estate Services
Capital solutions integrated
with operating expertise.
Rooted in the history of NorthMarq are two traits becoming increasingly important today in commercial real
estate—capital solutions and operating expertise. Our unique ability to integrate these functions allows us to
better help our clients solve problems and seize opportunities. And unlike other real estate companies attempting
to merely capitalize on the current economic downturn, we are confident in our ability to deliver solutions to
distressed or real-estate owned assets for one key reason—we’ve been doing this for decades.

For nearly 100 years, NorthMarq has been in the business of commercial real estate. We provide tailored solutions and unmatched
service to investors, owners, users, lending institutions and government agencies seeking market-leading guidance.

While we aren’t fond of downturns in the business cycle, we are familiar with what it takes to get out of them—from the tax Reform act
in 1986, the S & L crisis and the creation of the RtC to the stock market crash, dot-com bust and the post-Sept. 11 slowdown. time and
time again, we’ve demonstrated that we possess the knowledge and experience to help clients weather the storm and emerge safely on
the other side.

At the heart of the NorthMarq difference is a deeply rooted culture of teamwork. With each and every client, we work to assemble the
right team, with expertise specifically matched to the real estate opportunity. using our proprietary “owner team” approach, our two
internal leaders evaluate the real estate owner’s cash flow, tenant mix and financing structure to create a team of experts uniquely suited
to the needs of the project.

challenge. Our specialty resides in our ability to integrate all real estate services at any point in the lifecycle of an asset or loan, customize
a solution and provide immediate results on the road to recovery.
