NAI Dayton to merge with Cincinnati counterpart

Commercial real estate firm to focus on metroplex and surrounding area

Commercial real estate firm NAI Dayton will merge with its Cincinnati counterpart, NAI Bergman, effective Monday, June 1, principals of both firms announced Monday.

The move will allow NAI Bergman to expand its market to include Cincinnati, Dayton, Northern Kentucky and Southeast Indiana.

“Cincinnati is the doorstep to the southern Ohio region,” said Bob Zavakos, senior vice president of the Dayton-area office located in Centerville with seven employees. “Joining NAI Bergman offers us the opportunity to establish new relationships with clients who typically expand into the Dayton market.”

Laurence Bergman, CEO and broker of record for NAI Bergman, said, “Both firms recognize the efficiencies of combining resources particularly in light of the continued growth along the I-75 corridor, which is trending toward a single combined metropolitan area. Residents and businesses in the region have increasingly recognized the corridor as one large metropolitan area which together would be the 18th largest metropolitan area in the U.S.

“With our expanded market we now have even greater tools and inventory available to service the needs of our clients.”

In addition to brokerage services, NAI Bergman offers property management, construction management and tenant-finish services.

NAI Bergman and NAI Dayton are part of NAI Global, a worldwide network of owner-operated commercial real estate brokerage firms. NAI Global has more than 375 offices throughout North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia, with over 6,700 market specialists managing more than 380 million square feet of property.
