Fresh news from Northco Real Estate Services!
We at Northco Real Estate Services are very excited to become the newest affiliate of Sperry Van Ness International, a commercial real estate franchisor, to form locally-owned Sperry Van Ness | North Real Estate Services. Bringing you the same level of service with the added resources of a national network, SVN | Northco provides: full service brokerage, golf & resort, investment, property & asset management, construction and development services.
SVN | Northco is licensed to provide these various commercial real estate services in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota and North Dakota.
Frank Jermusek will head a newly-formed golf & resort national product council for over 180 Sperry Van Ness offices. Building on previous success with Northco over the last six years, Frank is looking forward to teaming with advisors from these 180 SVN offices to offer localized, hands-on assistance to clients across the country.
SVN | Northco Development
In the new affiliation, Adam Seraphine and Dean Dovolis will join and lead the development services practice group. With their experience in Twin Cities development market, they bring a track record of success to an already dynamic team.
Said Jermusek, “We are extremely excited about our partnership with Adam and Dean. Adam and I have been friends for a number of years and have talked about partnering up, but never pulled the trigger. Both of our groups have been extremely busy and believe this collaboration provies synergy for our practice teams.” Seraphine remains a principle at NHH Properties where he’ll continue to seek investments for both NHH and Northco Investments. Dovolis remains a principal with DJR Architecture, but will perform development services through SVN | Northco.
Collaboration, Training, and Technology
Partners Frank Jermusek and Walt Van Heest acquired Northco in 2006 and have enjoyed success at the helm of the 40 year-old company. Their partnering with Sperry Van Ness will allow them to build on this success by utilizing national networks to maximize property values for clients. They use the SVN cloud-based enterprise marketing system that provides everything from investment analysis to listing-specific website generation, giving clients an edge in making decisions and provides an added level of administrative efficiency.
The new partnership understands that another key to success is the ongoing development of employees. For that reason, SVN | Northco has developed a specific, continuous, professional skills program, including an immersive business development retreat that recently concluded. Through this program, our brokers have more fine-tuned skills to provide specialized services to clients.
With the partnership, Jermusek also anticipates doubling the size of the current brokerage staff to forty licensed professionals within the next year.
