NAI Global Announces New Belize Office
New York City, NY & San Pedro Town, Belize – January 17, 2019: Jay Olshonsky, FRICS, SIOR, and President & CEO of NAI Global, a leading global commercial real estate brokerage firm, today announced the opening of NAI Belize, which is serving the office, retail, multifamily, land, investment and hospitality property sectors in Ambergris Caye and San Pedro in Belize.
NAI Belize also provides asset and property management and development services.
The office is led by David Schooff, CCIM, SIOR, Owner/Broker, Jeremy (JB) Brown, Owner and Vice President Karen Toft.
Ambergris Caye is Belize’s largest island and is known for its water sports, scuba diving and Caribbean beaches. The Town of San Pedro, where NAI Belize is based, is the island’s gateway, business hub and center for sailing and reef exploration. Belize was named the leading destination in Central America in 2015 and 2016 by the World Travel Awards.
NAI Belize has a team of 15 professional and support staff members. Eleven professional staff will lead the organization in the areas of brokerage, management, development, marketing and operations.
NAI Belize was formed in 2018 by the owners and operators of Minnesota-based MN Real Estate Ventures, Ltd. – Schooff and Brown. The partners formed MN Real Estate Ventures, Ltd. after assembling significant real estate and development portfolios in their respective companies. NAI Belize recently assumed the property management portfolio of the former Belize Sotheby’s International Realty in late 2018, garnering exposure and business activity from existing clients.
Now an NAI Office, MN Real Estate Ventures, Ltd. anticipates the exposure and brand of NAI Global will substantially benefit its efforts to promote and expand commercial real estate services in Belize.
“MN Real Estate Ventures, Ltd. is pleased to announce the partnership with NAI Global, giving us the opportunity to expand our footprint in commercial real estate sales, leasing, property development and management outside of the United States,” said David Schooff, Broker/Owner, NAI Belize.
Jeremy Brown, Owner, NAI Belize, added, “The growth in the Belize market is unprecedented and we have assembled a strong team to manage a multitude of real estate investment portfolios with expertise in business brokerage, hospitality, retail, office, multifamily and investment land development. NAI Global provides us the platform to best serve our customers in this bourgeoning marketplace.”
Brown has been President & CEO of Alliance Contracting of Mankato, MN since 2009, in addition to serving as the Vice President of Development for Coldwell Banker Commercial Fisher Group. Schooff (CCIM, SIOR) has served as the President/Broker/Owner of Coldwell Banker Commercial Fisher Group since 2006, bringing his extensive real estate and property management portfolio to NAI Belize.
