Marcus & Millichap Expands Footprint in Canada, Again
Calabasas, CA-based Marcus & Millichap, Inc. acquired the assets of Primecorp Commercial Realty Inc., a Canadian commercial real estate services firm established in 1998, to provide brokerage services in all product types. Primecorp is based in Ottawa and Gatineau, and covers markets throughout Ontario and Quebec.
The additional offices, when combined with Marcus & Millichap’s current footprint in Canada, give the company presence in every major metropolitan area in Canada. Primecorp will add 11 producers in Canada, including its three co-founders, Aik Aliferis, Nick Pantieras and Sam Firestone.

Primecorp is a well-established company in its respective markets with a similar culture and business model to ours, as well as a proven ability to execute transactions across all product types including a major focus in multifamily.
