Our Founders

Marcus & Millichap revolutionized the real estate brokerage industry. The firm was designed to go far beyond simply facilitating real estate transactions. It was developed as an entire system dedicated to maximizing value for real estate investors.

In 1971, our founders, George M. Marcus and William A. Millichap, launched a new real estate investment business model based on a unique method of matching each property with the largest pool of pre-qualified investors. This simple premise—coupled with an unfailing drive to measure success by client satisfaction—enabled us to emerge as the industry’s pre-eminent real estate investment services firm.

Our founders’ vision has been realized by a commitment to specialization, our willingness to foster a culture of information sharing and the foresight to pioneer real estate technology. Today, Marcus & Millichap is the industry’s leading firm specializing in real estate investment sales and financing, as well as a leading source of research and advisory services.

Our senior management team, including our founders, remains dedicated to a tradition of reinventing the ultimate platform for marketing real estate.
