And the increase in activity of late is “across all product types,” more so than it has been in the past year. “We’re seeing deals being done not only in the office and multi-family real estate categories, but also in special purpose, medical office, even industrial and retail,” said Connor. NAI emory hill is “cautiously optimistic” that this slow but steady growth will continue in Delaware according to Connor. “Landlords are willing to make deals and tenants are starting to be willing to commit and buyers that were on the side- lines before are coming to the forefront with sellers willing to sell.

Connor also points to a va- riety of transactions that have been closed within the past few months by the NAI emory hill
