One of the top-producing brokers at investment services firm Besen & Associates has moved over to Marcus & Millichap Real Estate Investment Services.          

After a decade at Besen, Adelaide Polsinelli starts today at Marcus & Millichap as an associate vice president of investments at the company’s Manhattan office at 270 Madison Avenue and 40th Street.

Polsinelli, 48, said the firm’s national platform and its ability to access investment capital attracted her.

“This platform, along with the firm’s commitment to providing the business development tools necessary to grow my business, were very enticing,” said Polsinelli, who has been in the business for over 20 years.

Polsinelli closed over 200 investment sales deals in her 10 years at Besen & Associates. Her client base includes pension funds, institutions and high-net worth individuals.
“Several local real estate firms were pursuing Adelaide for her many talents, including her excellent negotiating skills, her long-term relationships with many of New York City’s high-profile investors and her impressive track record of investment sales,” said Edward Jordan, regional manger of the Manhattan office.
