Jesse Goldsmith is a senior managing director with Newmark Knight Frank’s Phoenix office. An industry expert of 14 years, Jesse partners with Senior Managing Director Steve Julius and Associate Chase Dorsett. The three specialize in investment sales for neighborhood retail assets in metro Phoenix, serving private and institutional investors. Throughout their careers, Jesse, Steve and Chase have completed transactions with a combined total consideration of more than $700 million.
Jesse works with investors across the United States and Canada to locate retail investment properties in Arizona and is particularly adept at sourcing hard-to-find buyers. He has cultivated and actively manages an extensive investor database, going beyond the traditional marketing process of relying on public listing services.
