Shane Shafer Joins NorthMarq from Berkadia

NorthMarq Capital added multifamily investment sales specialist Shane Shafer as managing director in its Los Angeles regional office. He will be based in Newport Beach, CA, and will continue the expansion of NorthMarq Multifamily’s investment sales business.

Shafer brings more than 20 years of experience in investment sales, most recently working in Berkadia’s Irvine, CA office, where he was the office’s top broker. His expertise is in the sale of apartments in SoCal for clients that range from some of the largest institutions to private capital. During his career, he has represented owners in selling more than $3 billion in sales of California apartments.

NorthMarq Capital’s Jeff Weidell says, “Shane is a great fit for our expanding multifamily business. Given the size of the Southern California market, it is a strategic growth opportunity for us as we integrate the sales and finance business on the West Coast.”
