National Development Services

Our integrated approach sets us apart from traditional land brokerage divisions.

While many commercial real estate firms have dedicated land practices and some offer financing options, no other player in the industry can rival our fully integrated specialty group. Our team of brokers, analysts, underwriters, and originators collaborate at every opportunity to ensure a consistently positive and seamless client experience from start to finish.

Whether it’s undeveloped land or an underutilized existing building, we are here for you. Build, buy, reposition, or sell – we make it happen.

What sets us apart is our unparalleled underwriting process—based on yield-on-cost modeling while also incorporating alternative approaches including sales comparable analysis and applying the FAR method. We deliver unique, customized solutions every time.

Our sophisticated underwriting methodology places a greater emphasis on the metrics developers use to determine if a project will pencil, including yield on cost and IRR. By using the same financial models that developers evaluate when underwriting land acquisitions, we maximize client returns. Additionally, our unique structure gives us the ability to add value and create solutions during all phases of the development process and throughout the capital stack. As a national leader in multifamily and commercial investment sales, Northmarq also has the capacity to assist in the sale of the completed property at stabilization.
