Elliott-Lewis Corporation and three former principals of NorthMarq, a nationwide commercial real estate investment banking organization, have formed a joint venture that specializes in real estate and economic development advisory services. NorthMarq Advisors, LLC, which is headquartered at Elliott-Lewis’ Black Lake Place headquarters, works with corporate and institutional clients. NorthMarq Advisors, LLC offers strategic planning, real estate representation to both tenants and landlords, feasibility analysis, portfolio management, and disposition and acquisition management services. Principals Walt D’Alessio, Tom Whitworth, and Don Lonergan combine over 100 years of experience in the field. The new firm also has offices at 1600 Market Street. According to Walt D'Alessio, "Tom, Don and I have known Bill Sautter and Jim Pizzi for a long time, and we have always thought highly of them and the employees associated with Elliott-Lewis. Therefore, when an opportunity arose to create a joint-venture to expand NorthMarq Advisors' capabilities to include facility management and other Elliot Lewis services, we did not hesitate, and both companies quickly moved to make the joint-venture a reality. We look forward to working together to continue to grow both organizations." For more on NorthMarq Advisors, LLC, visit http://www.northmarqadvisors.com/
