Next Generation Honoree: Unico’s Scott Brucker Spearheads Complex Portfolio Sale

Scott Brucker is Head of Asset Management and holds responsibility for the overall performance of Unico Properties LLC’s portfolio. In his current role, he oversees the asset management of Unico’s institutional funds and functions as a portfolio manager for certain assets/vehicles.

Over the course of his career, he has participated in transactions totaling over $2 billion. Brucker has been heavily involved in repositioning of Unico’s value-add assets and led numerous transactions. Throughout 2018, he spearheaded the highly complex 27-building portfolio sale totaling $710 million to Broad Street Principal Investments, an affiliate of Goldman Sachs, which successfully closed in the beginning of 2019.

These are just a few of the reasons we chose Brucker to be one of the Seattle & Pacific Northwest 2019 Next Generation Award winners. Connect Media’s third annual Next Generation Awards recognize young leaders in the commercial real estate industry who are likely to be influential for years to come.

Leading Unico’s in-house teams, Brucker managed detailed mechanics of the highly complex Unico Partners I portfolio sale, including fostering a collaborative relationship with the buyer. His leadership, experience, and tenacity directly contributed to the success of the sale. He also played an instrumental role in the transformation of Smith Tower, an iconic historic asset into a premiere Pioneer Square office property, as well as leading numerous successful sales throughout 2018, including office assets in Washington and Colorado.
