Newmark Associates has bolstered its team with the recent addition of four sales agents.
The new hires include Ebony Parham, who joined the firm earlier this year with real estate licensing credentials spanning 15 years in New Jersey, according to a news release. Previously, she worked for 26 years as an executive assistant at a major pharmaceutical company.
“Well-acclaimed by clients for her organizational skills, resourcefulness and ability to keep calm under pressure, Ebony is facile in her ability to interact with people at all levels, paying attention to details with alacrity such that she expedites the negotiation and sales processes with both personable and professional finesse,” the Cedar Knolls-based firm wrote in its announcement.
Parham will work on property sales, leasing and valuation and consulting assignments in Union and Middlesex counties. She attended the Professional School of Business at Union County College and has earned a host of real estate certifications, while serving as president of the National Council of Negro Women-Rahway Section.
Meantime, Jeremy Greenman joins Newmark Associates with more than 34 years of experience in real estate lending at various New Jersey banks with active, former commercial real estate clients and contacts in northern, central and southern New Jersey, the news release said. Most recently, as a former vice president of commercial real estate with a financial corporation in Morris County, he was tasked with developing new business opportunities in commercial real estate for northern and central New Jersey.
In that role, Greenman developed, analyzed and presented credits exceeding $143 million to banking’s executive management in 2019 and managed several substandard credit relationships into stronger bank positions. Previously, as vice president of new business development and commercial lending for four banks for almost 30 years, he serviced more than $218 million in commercial credit portfolios in addition to design, implementation and follow-up of marketing blitzes.
Greenman earned a bachelor’s in English from Pennsylvania State University and an MBA at Seton Hall University, having also completed post-graduate studies in calculus, economics and statistics, also from Penn State, the news release said. The longtime Hunterdon County resident is the finance committee chairman for the Raritan Valley Habitat for Humanity.
Newmark Associates’ other recent additions include James Davenport, who joined the firm after several years in various restaurant industry customer service positions and a more recent role as an analyst at CRM Marketing, a third-party consultant to improve the supply chain process for restaurant franchises.
“Being extremely competitive and dedicated to results, James brings a strong commitment to fulfilling client needs with creativity and integrity,” Newmark Associates wrote. He will also provide property sale, leasing and valuation services, with assignments including flex and industrial spaces in Morris, Bergen, Essex, Sussex and Union counties.
The lifelong Florham Park resident has volunteered for Relay for Life and the Haunted House Event sponsored by an environmental group in the Great Swamp.
Additionally, Vijay Solanki joined the Newmark team after being recently licensed as a commercial real estate agent, the news release said. He brings experience in hotel management and most recently was sales director for the New Jersey and Massachusetts region of a nutritional fitness company, as well as being assistant operations director at a nutritional supplements company.
Born in Clifton, Solanki was raised in Pine Brook and will offer property sale, leasing and valuation services in Morris and Essex counties.
He holds a bachelor’s in hospitality and tourism management from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst’s Isenberg School of Management, the news release said. Solanki’s community service includes working as a Pathways Mentor to help exceptional children find jobs and learn practical skills, along with being an active member at the Amherst Survival Center.
“We are excited to announce that four new sales agents have joined the Newmark team,” said Nancy Glick, the firm’s chief operating officer. “As a group they bring a unique mix of energy, enthusiasm, experience and expertise.”
