Shannon, Fulp to Lead Expanded NKF MF Investment Sales Platform

NKF expanded its SoCal multifamily investment sales platform, allowing clients to leverage multidisciplinary experts across commercial, industrial, retail, and now multifamily practices in building and managing their portfolios. The newly formed group will be led by Kevin Shannon, Co-Head of U.S. Capital Markets, and Sean Fulp, Private Capital Group lead, and will be under the strategic direction of Blake Okland, National Head of Multifamily Investment Sales.

The team is anchored by multifamily specialists Chris Benton, who was recently recruited back to the firm, Anthony Muhlstein and Ken White who have extensive multifamily development experience. NKF Debt and Structured Finance services will be provided by Vice Chairman David Milestone, who will also leverage the strength of NKF’s multi-disciplinary platform by working closely with Capital Market’s Vice Chairman Mitch Clarfield.

NKF’s Okland says, “We believe we have all the right ingredients to succeed in a post-COVID-19 environment. Kevin, Sean and Ken have experience building effective teams across all commercial product types and geographies. Chris and Anthony bring more than 20 years of Southern California multifamily brokerage experience. By bringing this team together, our clients are poised to have access to the most competitive opportunities in the market and across every segment.”
