NorthMarq Multiifamily’s Bill Hahn and Trevor Koskovich were recently recognized as Broker Team of the Month in the July/August issue of Commercial Executive Magazine. The team’s submission was prepared and presented by Willmeng Construction. Partners since 2007, multifamily professionals Bill Hahn and Trevor Koskovich have been riding the highs and lows of the Valley’s commercial real estate market for more than a decade. “I remember meeting Trevor for the first time over a lunch in Old Town Scottsdale,” Hahn recalls. “We hit it off and we had a plan.”
Early in 2018, Hahn and Koskovich moved their entire 10-team member operation from Colliers to NorthMarq Capital. The firm is an industry leader in commercial real estate finance with annual production volume of $13 billion and a loan-servicing portfolio of $52 billion on behalf of more than 50 institutional investors and the government-sponsored entities (GSE’s). “We realized this would be a good alliance,” says Koskovich, President of newly created NorthMarq Multifamily Investment Sales group. “We each had what the other wanted.”
Hahn, Executive Vice President of NorthMarq Multifamily Investment Sales, and Koskovich, came to the commercial real estate industry on vastly different paths. “I entered the business with Marcus & Millichap in the early 1980s,” says Hahn. Koskovich, on the other hand, entered the arena with an entrepreneurial energy, having sold two companies he started. “I believed commercial real estate would be a great industry for me,” he says. “I interviewed every firm in town to fi nd out which would be the best fit.” Sperry Van Ness proved the right launching pad for Koskovich. “I knew that working with Bill was ultimately going to offer me the most opportunity and room to grow,” he says. At 27, Koskovich had little idea of the obstacles looming on the horizon. “The market was ready to fall off a cliff. I recall the best advice I gave him,” says Hahn. “He told me, stop talking to owners of commercial real estate and start talking with the lenders,” says Koskovich.
