Background & Experience

Howard Fertman is Vice President of National Accounts and focuses on direct outreach to key real estate decision makers of major national and international firms, to assist with requirements both within the NAI Mertz trading region, as well as nationally and abroad. Howard has deep roots in the commercial real estate industry. Prior to joining NAI Mertz in 2017, He was a member of Hart Corporation’s national account division where his scope of work included corporate account management, new business development and project management of multi-state site searches and surplus dispositions of larger manufacturing and distribution facilities.

 

Howard has expertise in tertiary markets across the United States, from his many years of experience representing corporate client requirements in smaller towns and cities, with over 15 million square feet in completed sales and lease transactions. Howard also has an interest in marketing and re-positioning specialized and unique industrial properties, with a successful track record of completed transactions, including turnkey sales of both plant and equipment, in industries such as microelectronics, medical device, food processing, packaging, and coatings.


Dennis Ruetten, Vice President of Operations for Raynor Manufacturing Corporation says, "I've known Howard for many years. Prior to completing our most recent transaction, Howard called on me periodically, on my schedule and at my convenience. His persistence coupled with respect for my own schedule made it very easy to remain connected. During our last transaction Howard was extremely helpful, thorough, and very much in touch with the market. He provided accurate and thoughtful guidance throughout the process. We achieved a transaction that surpassed both my own and our company's expectations. In addition, he made the process enjoyable. I highly recommend Howard."


Michael D. Mahoney, CCIM, FRI, SIOR, and VP/ Canadian Broker says, “Howard recently served as my US counterpart on a sizable and complicated lease renewal transaction in Arizona. He was instrumental in formulating an arrangement that recognized the Landlord’s needs, but more importantly, provided our client with an acceptable market-based rental structure that included redefining various cost elements in the lease. Howard is knowledgeable, organized, attentive to detail and persistent in creating workable solutions to seemingly unresolvable issues.”
