BGL Announces the Formation of a National Multifamily Real Estate Group

Brown Gibbons Lang & Company (BGL), a leading middle market investment bank, is pleased to announce the formation of the National Multifamily Real Estate Group within Brown Gibbons Lang Real Estate Partners (BGLREP), BGL’s real estate investment sales advisory practice.

BGLREP’s National Multifamily Group operates in all U.S. markets, specializing in providing multifamily real estate owners, investors, and developers with market research and analysis, single or portfolio asset sales, residential land sales, recapitalization programs, note sales and equity, debt, and structured finance. “We have established a unique position in the marketplace by redefining real estate investment banking as a seamless blend of advisory and transactional services,” said Anthony D. Delfre, managing director of Brown Gibbons Lang Real Estate Advisors.

With access to BGL’s resources and extensive market reach, BGLREP offers the specialized expertise, local market knowledge, and personalized service found in boutique firms, while leveraging the scope, scale, and breadth of a global investment banking and real estate advisory firm. BGL is able to bring clients both deep industry knowledge from its dedicated sector teams and broad product capability from its corporate finance and real estate advisory groups, creating an integrated approach to long-term sustainable client relationships.

William E. Montana and Christopher D. Sackley, managing directors based in Chicago, will lead the effort. Together, Montana and Sackley have completed nearly $3 billion in transactions involving multifamily real estate acquisitions, investment sales, and debt and equity recapitalizations.

“With the capabilities, relationships, and reach of the investment bank behind us, we are now even better suited to provide our clients with more integrated advisory services,” said William Montana.  “We are very excited to demonstrate how those capabilities will ultimately help our clients succeed in achieving their financial objectives specific to their multifamily real estate investments,” said Christopher Sackley.
