Northcap Expands with New Multifamily Unit Real Estate Division

northcapLas Vegas’ premier real estate operator Northcap joins forces with veterans Devin Lee, CCIM, Antone Brazill, CCIM, and Robin Willett alongside Jerad Roberts and Jason Dittenber to form the city’s largest and most seasoned team of multifamily specialists. The group, which has more than two billion dollars of transactions between them, specifically sought out to merge with owner John Tippins and his thriving brokerage. “As a dedicated investment sales team, we wanted a brokerage that encompassed a trusted global service platform with local market expertise,” says Lee. “Northcap Commercial has set the bar very high in the Las Vegas real estate arena.”

The joining of the six-man powerhouse brings mastery in all facets of the market including investment brokerage, site selection, land development, asset management, financing, property management, leasing and a robust presence in Downtown Las Vegas. The team prides themselves in their willingness to take any listing from Class C to their prized history with Class A properties. Since the group is not bound to a larger corporate entity, they are able to conduct outreach with both various brokers and buyers and are able to bring a local’s perspective to an industry that is being overwhelmed with out-of-market competitors.

“Having the largest multifamily team in Las Vegas and maybe now the west coast allows us to provide the best service for our buyers and sellers,” says John Tippins. “We are already applying best practices, common sense, ownership and management experience as well as government relations to each transaction. At the end of the day we will work with every client or broker that comes to us to make the best deal.”

Last year, Lee’s team was honored as the CoStar Power Broker for 2015. He and Brazill are both also Certified Commercial Investment Member designees, an exclusive distinction for those with advanced coursework in financial and market analysis and are recognized as experts in commercial investment. In the two months since uniting, the team has already opened and closed one transaction, put 4 properties into escrow and brought on 10 listings.

“Finding a company that complemented our spirit, enthusiasm and innovative mindset was crucial for the future development of our team’s career vision,” says Willett. “Our goal is to help build the investment services division at Northcap Commercial to a new level in the multifamily and land market.”
