LAS VEGAS (Sept. 18, 2023) — Northmarq’s Las Vegas Investment Sales office has announced the addition of Taylor Sims, managing director. In his new role, Sims will represent investors and landowners in property acquisitions and dispositions throughout the multifamily market segment of the Las Vegas metropolitan statistical area (MSA).
Sims will work alongside Managing Director Thomas Olivetti, Investment Sales Analyst Vasili Bayiatis, and Transaction Manager Taylor Phillips. Additionally, they will collaborate with the Las Vegas Debt + Equity team. Sims will report to Jesse Hudson, regional managing director based in the Phoenix Investment Sales office.
“Momentum is important in our market, and my move to Northmarq looks to capitalize on that,” Sims said. “Thomas and I form a team responsible for nearly $3 billion in sales since 2021 on more than 60 transactions, totaling more than 120% greater than our closest competitors in the Las Vegas market. I could not be more thrilled about this opportunity.”
Before joining Northmarq, Sims led Cushman & Wakefield’s Las Vegas Multifamily Advisory Group for eight years. Prior to Cushman & Wakefield, Taylor spent four years as an associate at Berkadia.
“Taylor is an extremely driven, successful and well-respected broker,” Olivetti said. “We have competed against each other many times over the years, and together we are going to be a major force in the Las Vegas marketplace.”
Sims has historically been one of the most active multifamily brokers in Las Vegas. He has brokered some of the highest price-per-unit transactions in Las Vegas history, including the first sale to break the $400,000-per-unit barrier. Since 2021, he has brokered over $1.3 billion in sales volume on more than 5,000 units. Sims is also a four-time winner of CoStar’s Power Broker Top Sales Broker Award.
