We hope you and your family had a fantastic Thanksgiving! Our REAL Leaders were happy to have been a part of two different Thanksgiving volunteer events in our community leading up to the big day. On November 19th a group joined with the Urban League of Palm Beach County to distribute turkeys and boxed meal items to feed over 750 families in the community. MHC also helped raise more than $4,100 to assist in the purchasing of food for that amazing event.
On November 23rd another group of REAL Leaders participated in the Big Heart Brigade and Christ Fellowship Thanksgiving Outreach which prepares and distributes over 75,000 individual meals for needy ones in our community. Our group carved enough turkeys to be included in 900 individually packaged meals.
It’s so rewarding to make an impact in our community, especially during the holidays when so many families are in need. We’re looking forward to our next holiday volunteer event with Adopt-a-Family of the Palm Beaches!
West Palm Beach, Fla. – It has been a busy few months for NAI/Merin Hunter Codman. Since June of this year, Palm Beach County’s largest privately held commercial real estate services firm has represented buyers and sellers in approximately $250 million of commercial real estate sales. The investment properties included office, retail and multifamily properties and ranged in size from just under one million to over seventy million dollars.
NAI/Merin Hunter Codman’s Investment Sales Team led by Chairman Neil E. Merin, SIOR, CCIM, Capital Markets Specialist Christian J. Johannsen, CCIM, Retail Specialist Spencer Grossman and Multi-Housing Specialist Wendy Pierre, CCIM, facilitated almost a quarter billion dollars of investment sales transactions representing a variety of institutional and private equity clients. NAI/Merin Hunter Codman accomplished its clients’ goals over what is normally a sluggish summer period in a year which has been notable for a nationwide slowdown in investor demand. In several cases NAI/Merin Hunter Codman’s Capital Markets team was also able to assist its clients by arranging financing for the properties. The firm which also manages and leases approximately 5 million square feet of office, retail and industrial property throughout Palm Beach County has established itself as one of Palm Beach County’s premier investment sales brokers.
Jordan Paul, Chief Executive Officer of NAI/Merin Hunter Codman stated, “Florida, in general, and Palm Beach County, in particular, have continued to be very attractive investment targets in a year where we have seen investors pull back due to economic and political uncertainty. Notwithstanding that perception, our area has benefitted from steady growth in rental rates and absorption along with positive demographic trends that should allow that growth to continue. We are very pleased that our team has been able to effectively convey all that is positive about Florida and Palm Beach County on behalf of our clients. We have a diverse and experienced group of brokers who have done a tremendous job this year representing our clients on a wide variety of investment sales. Our team has combined our market knowledge with the access we have to investors worldwide through our affiliation with the NAI Global network, which has over 375 commercial real estate offices located throughout the world, to provide our clients with an extraordinary level of exposure and outstanding transaction executions for their commercial properties.”
