Jim McGuckin is licensed real estate salesperson and is a senior member of Marcus & Millichap’s Team Nowak. Led by Jakub Nowak, the Team focuses on providing brokerage and advisory services to owners of commercial, industrial and development real estate in the outer boroughs of New York City. Jim’s geographical specialties are Northern and Eastern Brooklyn, where he oversees the Team’s activities. He also assists Mr. Nowak in running the team’s infrastructure and mentoring junior agents.
Mr. McGuckin grew up in Long Island, New York and launched his real estate career in 2013 after graduating from SUNY Oneonta with a bachelor’s degree in Communications. Mr. McGuckin began working with Jakub Nowak under the company’s Sales Intern Program in the middle of 2013, becoming a full time agent soon after joining the company.
Since then Mr. McGuckin has marketed over 600,000 square feet of commercial real estate in Brooklyn and is a top producing agent of Marcus and Millichap's Brooklyn Office. In the past year, Mr. McGuckin has brokered over $100,000,000 of commercial real estate. In 2015, Mr. McGuckin received the company’s prestigious sales recognition award along with the company’s rising star award.
Some of his most notable transactions include procuring the buyer for one of Team Nowak’s exclusive listings located at 1077 Atlantic Avenue. Mr. McGuckin was able to leverage his relationship with a buyer who traditionally purchased real estate in Manhattan and Northern Brooklyn and introduced him to the Bedford Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn. That transaction closed for a neighborhood price record of $404 per square foot and was under contract for only one day.
Mr. McGuckin also recently closed on the sale of a warehouse in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn for a historical price record of $627 per square foot. Through an exclusive marketing campaign he and Mr. Nowak were able to leverage eight written offers into an all-cash deal without any buyer contingencies.
