RM Friedland, a commercial real estate services firm serving the Tri-State area with a particular focus on Westchester, the Bronx, Fairfield, Rockland and Putnam Counties, has announced the expansion of its team of staff and brokers, further positioning the company as a leading force in commercial real estate in the area. This news caps off an exceptional year for the company, which saw a 58 percent increase in aggregate dollar transaction volume and a 49 percent increase in aggregate square footage transaction volume year-over-year (11/30/15 – 11/30/16).
Just over one year after Robert Martin Company made a significant investment in the firm.
RM Friedland has grown its non-broker staff to 9 employees, including hiring team members dedicated to research/information, marketing, operations and administrative support. The research/information employees are responsible for enhancing the company’s proprietary database of market supply and demand.
In addition, the company has increased training opportunities for its brokers, including collaborative “lunch and learn” meetings for the entire brokerage team and bi-weekly trainings and information sessions for junior brokers led by seasoned division leads covering a full-range of real estate topics.
Looking ahead, the firm plans to strengthen its core divisions of industrial and retail, enhance its coverage of the office market and explore an expansion into multi-family in 2017.
“Our company has grown significantly since I joined nearly a year ago. I am proud to say that because of the hard work and dedication of our team, this has been a banner year for the firm,” said Sarah Jones-Maturo, president of RM Friedland. “We will continue to strive to offer best-in-class training to our brokers and look forward to leveraging the data our research team presents in order to best serve our clients across the Tri-State area.”
