MINNEAPOLIS (August 18, 2015) – Melissa Marcolini-Quinn, managing director and senior vice president of NorthMarq Capital’s Orlando and Jacksonville regional offices, has been named a Real Estate Forum Women of Influence Award winner, joining other exceptional women from the commercial real estate industry noted for their professional achievements, leadership qualities and contributions to the community.

Marcolini-Quinn and the other 2015 Women of Influence winners were selected from a pool of more than 350 highly qualified candidates, and are profiled in the newest issue of Real Estate Forum. The women were chosen based on their outstanding work in the field, such as transactional volume, contributions to the industry at large and the impact on their company’s overall success.

In 2014 Marcolini-Quinn closed nearly $200 million in transactions and is on track to do significant volume again in 2015. Some notable transactions included a $29,340,000 value-add bridge loan, $17.7 million bridge loan for a multifamily acquisition, and $14,400,000 acquisition loan for an asset in Cincinnati closed in just fourteen days.

Upon graduating Cum Laude from the University of Central Florida with a BSBA in Finance, she joined NorthMarq Capital where she quickly rose through the ranks from entry-level analyst to her current position as managing director.

“As one of the few women to make it to managing director status at NorthMarq Capital, Melissa stands out from the pack,” said William Ross, president of NorthMarq, “Even while overseeing two offices, Melissa continues to originate significant loan volume leading the office in production each year.”

Marcolini-Quinn serves on the board for the Orlando chapter of CREW and on the Real Estate Council for the University of Central Florida, as well as is a member of MBA, NMHC, ICSC, and AAGO.
