Transwestern Expands Northeast Capital Markets Team With Two Additional Professionals

NEW YORK, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Transwestern's Northeast headquarters today announced that the firm has hired two additional real estate veterans to join its capital markets team: Gary Sopko and Matthew Schnurr, serving as managing directors, join Peter Schubert, Tom Ashforth and Pat Bisceglia, bringing the team's combined experience to more than a century. Transwestern's Northeast territory has experienced rapid growth in all service lines since its inception two years ago.

The firm's Northeast Capital Markets Group provides a full range of investment sales, debt financing and equity placement. The group has closed more than $10 billion in investment sales transactions, funded in excess of $7.5 billion in debt and completed more than $3 billion in fully-funded equity investments.

"The group that we have compiled has a strong foundation in sales, investment banking, structured finance, principal ownership and development, as well as a demonstrated ability to source and secure highly desirable investments," said Patrick Robinson, president of Transwestern's Northeast territory. "With more than 100 years of combined experience, they are fully equipped to handle a wide range of transactions throughout the Northeast."

With more than 30 years of experience in banking and commercial real estate, Sopko focuses on structured finance transactions. He has sourced, underwritten, structured/negotiated more than $6 billion of commercial real estate transactions. Prior to Transwestern, Sopko was head of Acquisitions and Capital Markets for Advance Realty Group, one of the premier privately held commercial real estate investment firms in the Northeast.

Schnurr has completed more than $4 billion of equity, debt and structured finance transactions on office, industrial, multifamily and retail properties throughout his 30-year career. Prior to Transwestern, Schnurr served with the Institutional Services Group of Grubb & Ellis Company.

Peter Schubert focuses on the sale of multifamily and mixed-use property in New York City where he has completed more than 100 transactions since 2003. Tom Ashforth heads Transwestern's Connecticut office with a primary focus in investment sales of office, retail and industrial properties.
