Weston Leaves Marcus & Millichap for CBRE

Stewart I. Weston, one of SoCal’s more accomplished leaders in multifamily investment sales, has joined CBRE Group, Inc. as an executive vice president in the Capital Markets group. Weston left Marcus & Millichap, along with John Montakab, and two support staff.
