Northmarq Completes Acquisition of Stan Johnson Company
Northmarq has completed its acquisition of Stan Johnson Company (SJC), a real estate brokerage and advisory firm that focuses on investment sales across multiple asset classes. The acquisition also includes the purchase of Four Pillars Capital Markets (FPCM), a debt/equity intermediary for commercial real estate assets.
With the addition of SJC and FPCM to its existing multifamily sales platform, Minneapolis-based Northmarq will now offer services across all major property types. The expanded company transacts $23 billion in debt/equity volume and $15 billion in investment sales volume annually, and services a commercial loan portfolio in excess of $76 billion.
“The closing of this transaction ushers in a new era for our clients and employees,” said Jeffrey Weidell, CEO at Northmarq. “We’re incredibly pleased with the growth our company has experienced since entering the investment sales space in 2018 and we look forward to continuing that momentum in the years to come.”
