COMPANY NEWS! Markward Group Welcomes Mike Capobianco and Chip Miers to the Team
One of the most successful commercial real estate firms in the Lehigh Valley has grown its team once again
Previously Mike Capobianco was Senior Vice President of Brokerage for Colliers International and Vice President of Real Estate Advisory Services with Grubb and Ellis (now NGKF), both being global real estate services companies. Mike got his start in commercial real estate with Liberty Property Trust where he was a marketing specialist responsible for the leasing of industrial, flex, warehouse and office space. He worked with development specialists and construction managers to complete project marketing plans, feasibility studies, sales strategies and project budgets for new buildings.
“Mike is a well-known real estate professional and brings with him a deep knowledge of the business and especially the Eastern PA commercial real estate market. Mike has been involved in some of the market’s largest and most interesting deals over his career.” Markward said. “With his depth of knowledge and his superior credentials, including his SIOR designation, he will help our company climb to new heights.”
Chip Miers has over 15 years of commercial real estate experience. He worked for Markward Group from 2001 to 2005, and then joined two other commercial real estate companies. After working for those firms, he realized that once Markward Group was reestablished, he wanted to be part of the organization again based on their core values and strengths for commercial real estate.
“Chip’s a seasoned veteran in sales and commercial real estate sales. It’s a coup for our company to have such a personable, hard-working professional join our team.” Markward said. “We expect big things for our firm through Chip’s contacts and business acumen.”
