The professionals specialize in investment sales for retail properties in metro Phoenix, advising private and institutional investors on diverse real estate strategies.

We are thrilled to welcome them to NKF,” added NKF’s Executive Managing Director Mike Garlick.
Julius, Goldsmith and Dorsett serve a core client base of private capital investors with a focus on multi-tenant shopping centers and net leased retail properties.
