Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) is pleased to announce the expansion of its Valuation & Advisory (V&A) practice with the opening of its nine-person Buffalo office, led by Executive Vice President Scott Allen, MAI.

Mr. Allen, a 33-year industry veteran, brings a deep knowledge of valuation and market studies across a range of asset types.

With more than three decades of experience, he possesses a deep knowledge of senior housing, student housing and rent comparability studies.

David Carlon, senior vice president, and Joseph Sievert, senior appraiser, have a combined 34 years of experience, preparing valuations and market analyses across a broad range of property types, with a special focus on multifamily and residential housing. They have prepared appraisals for mortgage lenders, corporations, non-profits, tax credit syndicators, private developers/investors, and government entities including Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac, HUD and Rural Development.

The team joins NKF from commercial real estate firm GAR Associates. Included in the team are Senior Research Analysts Brian Smith and Phil Buffone, Research Analyst Eric Broughton and Analyst Erin Schafer, who specialize in data and report processing across asset types.

"We are excited to add Scott, Dave and the team in Buffalo. The practice they have built has become one of the preeminent teams in the HUD Multifamily space. Together with our teams in Denver, Phoenix, Charlotte and Pittsburgh, NKF has assembled a dominant national practice," said John Busi, MAI, FRICS, President of NKF V&A. "This new office, combined with this team's deep understanding of the HUD Multifamily landscape and current market trends, strategically positions us to better serve existing and new clients."
