Real Estate Notebook: Moynihan takes over Newmark; Ardent expands in Buckhead

Atlanta’s ninth-largest commercial real estate brokerage has a new market leader. Sean Moynihan is taking the lead role at Newmark Knight Frank, which has close to 70 brokers and 100 staff in Atlanta. The office is known for strong roots in the office tenant rep business and for its deep ties to Grubb & Ellis, a major player in the city’s brokerage business for years. Several years ago, as the real estate market continued to emerge from the recession, BGC partners completed the purchase of both Newmark and Grubb & Ellis, then eventually rolled them together into one brand.
