NAI Shames Makovsky has been shaping the Denver commercial real estate landscape for 45 years by providing solution-driven, innovative, and decisive services to the community. NAI Shames Makovsky was founded in 1971 by Motty Shames and Evan Makovsky as a brokerage and investment real estate firm. Now NAI Shames Makovsky is a full-service commercial real estate firm offering brokerage, development, property management, and lending for retail, business office, medical office, and industrial properties. Our breadth of services allows us to better understand and assist our clients in realizing their business objectives.
Commercial Real Estate Brokerage
NAI Shames Makovsky agents focus is on the Denver marketplace where we live, work, and invest. We are driven to deliver superior service and results to our customers and clients. While our experience encompasses all facets of commercial real estate brokerage, it is how we apply it that makes the difference. Each deal, no matter the scope, receives the same high level of care and attention from our professionals. As owners and managers of real estate, we know first-hand what it takes to be profitable, which lends to our success. Our agents are also supported by an in-house team of professionals including legal, financial analysis, marketing, graphic design, and construction consulting.
Commercial Real Estate Lending
NAI Shames Makovsky began offering real estate loans more than 25 years ago when we recognized that traditional lending institutions could not accommodate certain real estate transactions. Since then, transactions requiring short-term capital or involving complicated circumstances have become our specialty. We actively structure transactions and creatively resolve issues to accommodate borrowers’ particular circumstances. Clients not only benefit from our industry experience, but from our long-standing relationships with large institutional lenders and the unequaled customer service that comes from being a locally owned organization.
Our property management portfolio includes approximately 3 million square feet of commercial real estate throughout Denver. NAI Shames Makovsky operates on the philosophy that there is no substitute for ongoing, personal interaction with both clients and tenants. This individualized approach allows us to take proactive and preventative measures to control property expenses and retain tenants. We have also formed enduring relationships with preferred vendors whose services further enhance the quality and value of NAI Shames Makovsky’s service.
Real Estate Investment & Development
NAI Shames Makovsky is committed to the responsible growth and development of Denver’s commercial real estate. We have invested and developed retail centers, hotels, office buildings, industrial properties, and land—often with award-winning results. Our investment strategy typically looks at the long-term opportunities involved with either purchasing or developing buildings or land. NAI Shames Makovsky’s perspective differs from other investors and developers; we focus on the income potential of properties using a multi-generational approach and tax-deferred exchanges.
NAI Shames Makovsky is known for its unique, considered, and visionary approach under any circumstance. We listen and understand first; speak second. NAI Shames Makovsky is a company where nothing is hidden, confidence is earned, and lasting relationships are nurtured. We place honesty and equality above all else and work hard to ensure client satisfaction.
