Who we are

Markward Group Commercial Real Estate firm was founded in 1995 by President and CEO Del Markward, SIOR; an accomplished Broker of Record real estate professional with more than 30 years of commercial real estate transactional and leadership experience in the Lehigh Valley.

What sets Markward Group apart is our brokers and their ability to provide our clients more than a suite of services; they form long-term business relationships that go beyond a single project or transaction. Our professionals create meaningful real estate solutions that deliver measurable results. But what truly sets us apart is our in-house expertise with financial and logistic infrastructure issues.

From our offices in the Lehigh Valley, we are strategically positioned to cover the heart of Eastern Pennsylvania, from Philadelphia to Scranton, west to Harrisburg and everything in between and beyond to the Mid-Atlantic states.

WHO WE WORK WITH

Markward Group’s clients seek experienced, innovative advisers who care, who share their commitment to success, who understand their needs and objectives and who offer strategic access and market intelligence. In our view, our real estate professionals are the beating heart of our brokerage business. We are justifiably proud of our agents and brokers and their depth of experience and record of accomplishment.
