WALNUT CREEK, Calif. (June 14, 2023) — Northmarq’s Walnut Creek office has announced the addition of Chris Sands, vice president and lead broker. Sands brings a seasoned skill set, helping him build long-lasting rapport with clients. In his role, Sands will be involved in the acquisition and disposition of single and multi-tenant net lease properties across the nation, with a primary focus in retail investments.

“It’s a thrill to join Northmarq and the high-quality brokers we have both nationwide and in the East Bay," Sands said. "I look forward to growing this office and leveraging our robust platform to continue providing excellent service to clients."

Sands has earned real estate licenses in New York and California and has forged relationships with a wide range of national clients, including private investors and institutions. Before joining Northmarq, Sands served as a senior associate at Matthews Real Estate Investment Services — where he was a top producer and a founding member of its Walnut Creek office.

“We’re excited to bring Chris onboard in our Walnut Creek office,” said Curtis Hodges, regional managing director of commercial investment sales. “He brings a strong track record of delivering great service for clients in the net lease space, and I believe with the power of the Northmarq platform behind him, he will provide even greater results for clients with our investment sales and debt and equity solutions.”
