NEW YORK, January 28, 2021 – BayBridge Real Estate Capital, a company of Berkowitz Pollack Brant Advisors + CPAs, today announced that 40-year real estate and capital markets veteran Mark Niman has joined the firm as executive managing director.
Niman has a wealth of experience executing transactions and representing clients throughout the United States, Canada, South America, Europe and the Middle East in all asset classes. His career has been built on strong lender relationships and his clients are in all sectors of commercial real estate, including multi-family, student housing, hotels and resorts, casinos, industrial, self-storage, retail and office buildings.
Director of BayBridge Real Estate Capital Jay Miller commented, “I’ve known Mark most of my career and I know he will be a great asset to the firm.
