Jeff Oram and Nat Gambuzza Named Top Investment Specialists in New Jersey Office
ELMWOOD PARK, N.J., April 4, 2011 – Marcus & Millichap Real Estate Investment Services, the nation’s largest real estate investment services firm, has named its top producers for 2010, according to Michael J. Fasano, vice president and regional manager of the New Jersey office. Jeff Oram (top right photo) and Nat Gambuzza (top left photo) ranked as the top two agents in the office, closing a combined 22 transactions last year totaling $62 million.
Jeff Oram, a director of the firm’s National Office and Industrial Properties Group (NOIPG), joined Marcus & Millichap in 2009 and specializes in the sale of office and industrial buildings.
Oram closed 10 transactions last year, including the sale of the underlying senior debt on a 287-unit multifamily complex in Bergen County. In another stand-out deal, he represented a New Jersey industrial developer in the $9 million disposition of two triple-net-leased assets. Oram also closed on the sale of a single-tenant triple-net lease office building in Ridgewood.
Nat Gambuzza, a vice president investments with the firm and a director of its National Multi Housing Group, joined Marcus & Millichap in 2002 and focuses on multifamily investment sales.
Gambuzza brokered 12 transactions in 2010. He worked with Oram to sell the underlying debt on a 287-unit multifamily asset in Bergen County; the disposition of Hampshire Court, a 54-unit apartment building in Plainfield; and 41 apartment units on West Englewood Avenue in Teaneck.
“There was a call to action among buyers and sellers to execute transactions in 2010,” explains Fasano. “This was fueled in part by historically low interest rates, but also recognition that for the most part, prices had bottomed and it was time to execute. Investors demonstrated a strong appetite for quality assets. Both private and institutional investors competed for quality, which created momentum that still exists in the current marketplace.”
