JLL Expands Capital Markets Platform in Baltimore

Andrew Finkelstein brings more than 12 years of experience to JLL team

BALTIMORE, MD, Mar. 8, 2016 – JLL today announced the firm has hired Andrew Finkelstein as a Vice President in the firm’s Capital Markets practice in Baltimore. Finkelstein brings more than 12 years of related industry experience to JLL. After more than five years with David S. Brown Enterprises, LTD., a prominent local development company—where he represented a real estate portfolio comprised of more than four million square feet of mixed-use, retail and office projects—Finkelstein moved into a business development role with the market-dominant commercial title insurance company run by Howard Perlow. After three years with Perlow, Finkelstein joined KatzAbosch, a Top 200 accounting and consulting firm headquartered in Timonium, MD.

During his commercial real estate career, Finkelstein has been responsible for cultivating new relationships, lead generation, strengthening existing client relationships and influencing the marketing initiatives and branding of the firm.  He will partner with Managing Director Jay Wellschlager to bolster the firm’s investment sales expertise in the region.

“Andrew is well known in this market and maintains a very large network in Baltimore and beyond,” said Wellschlager. “His focus on best-in-class client services will immediately add value to our existing clients and help us further expand our market-leading Capital Markets platform in the region.”

Finkelstein currently chairs The Associated’s Real Estate Industry Group and co-chairs the Center Club’s Real Estate Intraclub. He previously ran the popular Maryland Real Estate Convention during the annual ICSC convention in Las Vegas and is a member of ICSC, ULI and NAIOP. He is also involved in several community organizations.
