NAI Harmon Group Represents Largest Independent Commercial Real Estate Network in Northwest Ohio
New York – March 8, 2016 – NAI Global, the single largest, most powerful global network of owner-operated commercial real estate brokerage firms, today announced its newest Member firm, NAI Harmon, headquartered in Toledo, OH. Formerly known as Industrial Developers Ltd., NAI Harmon Group offers a full range of commercial real estate services, including brokerage, development, property management, construction and logistics. Under the leadership of Ed Harmon, President, NAI Harmon Group, the team brings a deep level of local market knowledge and leadership.
“Northwest Ohio is an increasingly important market to our Member firms and their clients,” said,” said Jay Olshonsky, FRICS, SIOR, President of NAI Global. “The region is home to a number of world headquarters and Fortune 500 companies, and we are pleased to present our Members access through the outstanding track record of NAI Harmon Group.”
Historically, Northwest Ohio has been at the forefront of the US automotive and manufacturing sectors. Today it is one of the premier locations for bioscience, alternative energy, food processing, agribusiness, transportation and logistics companies. Located within 600 miles of 62% of all US and Canadian population, the region is served by the busiest intersection in the country – Interstate 75 and Interstate 80. With class one railroads, international and domestic airports and navigable waterways, Northwest Ohio offers the optimal mix of location, technology and workforce. “With these market fundamentals, Northwest Ohio is positioned for dynamic growth” said Dallas Paul, Principal Broker. Major companies include Owens Corning, Owens Illinois, Cooper Tire, Andersons, First Solar, Pilkington, Dana, Promedica, Mercy Health Care and Fiat Chrysler, home of the Jeep Wrangler.
"The decision to join NAI Global was an easy one,” said Harmon. “We’ve expanded our reach nationally and internationally, and are now part of a network of over 375 offices and more than 6,700 brokers to directly market Northwest Ohio. As part of NAI Global, we are able to offer our clients access to local experts anywhere in the world, and at the same time, offer our agents additional opportunities to drive business locally.”
As the region continues to flourish, NAI Harmon Group is uniquely poised to offer commercial real estate solutions to companies looking to expand existing operations or relocate to the area. “As the only truly full service commercial real estate firm for this area, being part of the NAI Global network will help us not only retain our current market share but to grow it at a faster pace,” added Harmon.
