The Boerke Company continues to see their office expand with expert talent, as three additional brokers join the firm. Rand Wolf, a former Senior Vice President at CB Richard Ellis, will be adding over 30 years of market knowledge to the firm’s Industrial Team, while Kristian Sydow and Nathan Powers, both former team members at Apex Commercial (now Jones Lang LaSalle), bring their combined 15 years of commercial real estate and development experience to the company’s Retail Team. Nate Powers was also featured in The Business Journal's CRE Guide: People in the News.
The BizTimes interviewed Partner Terry McMahon about the new additions. “They are all seasoned brokers,” said McMahon. "The company is on the move. (Cushman & Wakefield) is now the third largest real estate firm in the world.”

The Business Journal recently asked The Boerke Company's Terry McMahon a few questions about where the Commercial Real Estate industry is headed going into 2012. Though Terry's focus is typically on the industrial market, he does currently represent clients and properties across all commercial real esate segments, and because of this, he has a unique view of all industry segments.
