Matthew Stacom, a longtime top broker at Cushman & Wakefield and father to reigning real estate queens Darcy and Tara Stacom, died over the weekend. He was 95.

“His leadership at the firm and the legacy he has passed on embodies Cushman & Wakefield’s core values of being ethical, working hard, putting the client first and maintaining an entrepreneurial spirit,” a spokesperson for Cushman said in a statement to GlobeSt. “The Stacom name has become synonymous with iconic real estate and we know his legacy will continue through the great work of his family.”

Stacom’s career highlights include spearheading the sale of Chicago’s Sears Tower site in 1962, and bagging the Real Estate Board of New York’s “Most Ingenious Deal of the Year” award in both 1962 and 1963, according to GlobeSt. His daughter Darcy is a top-ranked investment sales broker at CBRE, and has been dubbed “queen of the skyscrapers,” while another daughter Tara is a leading leasing broker at Cushman.
