tenants and property own- ers in every facet of leasing and sales acquisition and disposition transactions. Recent transaction high- lights include exclusively representing the seller and identifying the buyer in the $8.2M sale of a single- story warehouse building and finalizing the leasing of 17,500 s/f and 10,000 s/f at two newly constructed industrial buildings, both in Piscataway. He also was part of the tenant representation team for two long-term of- fice-lease agreements involv- ing a NYC-based medical provider tenant at Forrestal Professional Center II in the Plainsboro section of Princ- eton and at 310 Madison Avenue in Morristown. “Our firm’s size and years of experience in select mar- kets gives NAIDB the unique ability to pivot as needed and support the needs of our cli- ents in any given cycle,” said DiLeo. “Our brokerage team members are collaborative, and through internal coop- eration and communication, there is an open path for career growth and success.” Selective in its criteria, NAIDB is continually seeking new talent, from seasoned bro- kerage professionals to recent college graduates and promis- ing individuals with a strong desire to learn the business from the ground up. An impor- tant component of NAIDB’s early-training program is the pairing of newcomers with experienced mentors. Based in Woodbridge, N.J., NAIDB is a member of NAI Global, a leading global com- mercial real estate advisor with 325+ offices and 5,800 professionals.

a merited acknowledgement of Gerace and DiLeo’s con- tributions toward NAIDB’s geographic expansion and increased transaction activ- ity throughout North and Central New Jersey. “This promotion is well deserved and a reflection of Kyle and Roberts’ excep- tional achievements over the past several years. They possess the skillset, determi- nation and personalities to flourish in this business and their professional growth has been impressive,” said David Simon , NAIDB chief operating officer. A natural competitor with tremendous persistence, Gerace – a former pitcher who was a member of the Rutgers University baseball team – is a highly motivated self-starter, which has and continues to give him an edge in his commercial real estate career. Consequently, Gerace’s name has become linked to some of the region’s mostnoteworthy transac- tions. Recent highlights include two separate in- dustrial property sales in East Brunswick and Pisca- taway totaling a combined $15.45M and 77,000 s/f; two industrial leases totaling over 70,000 s/f in Middlesex and Monmouth counties; and the sale of an office property in Union County. “In this business it is very important to find a way to provide value, whether it is internally within your team or with clients, and I strive to do this each day,” said Gerace, who was re- cently recognized as one of the firm’s top producers last year. “Working in an environment like the one at NAIDB, where experi- enced professionals provide constant support and guid- ance, is critical to my career trajectory. I look forward to building upon these early successes for many years

“We are delighted to now be evolving our firm to the next level of growth with PS&S, who we have long felt would be a perfect part- ner,” said Steven Becica , principal. “As a result of this combination, our team will now have virtually all the ar- chitectural and engineering solutions needed for public buildings of all kinds – under one roof. It’s a plus for us, our clients and the larger community of developers in New Jersey.” In the government sector, among Becica’s notable proj- ects is the seven-story 180,000 s/f Mitchell H. Cohen Federal Courthouse in Camden. “As we look out to the fu-

ture of our firm and the State of New Jersey, we see im- portant opportunities -- and indeed necessary steps to be taken – in addressing the problem of aging infrastruc- ture,” said John Middleton , principal. “The built envi- ronment stock in the public sector is getting older and, to- gether with PS&S, our focus will be on repairing, replac- ing and maintaining public buildings for the future.” Sartor concluded, “The acquisition of Becica is a step forward in our plan to broaden our services and presence in South Jersey, and we heartily welcome Steve, John and their team to the PS&S family.” MAREJ

“Becica Associates is known as the ‘go to’ firm for public buildings—whether that is K-12 schools and higher ed—or government projects at the state and even Federal level,” said Sartor. “Having this team join is significant for PS&S as we look to build our pres- ence in both education and South Jersey where Becica is particularly well known and highly regarded.” In the education sector, Becica has worked with more than 50 different Boards of Education in New Jersey. Proj- ects include K-12 and higher education, as well as Abbott Districts and early childhood.
