Burns Scalo Real Estate joins NaI Global; Aims to hire additional brokers

PITTSBURGH, PA — Burns Scalo Real Estate (BSRE), one of Pittsburgh's leading independent commercial real estate firms, is excited to announce its official affiliation with NAI Global, the world's premier network of independent commercial real estate firms, plus the addition of 7,000 s/f of office space to support the expansion of its brokerage team.

The collaboration with NAI punctuates the organization's ambition for national growth. It aligns precisely with the addition of the firm's new president, Brian Walker, who will be Chair of the NAIOP Corporate Board in January 2024. Walker added, "One of our many strategic goals is to diversify geographically, and our partnership with NAI Global is a perfect fit for us."

He added, "We are taking our experience and expertise to the national level as a full-service real estate advisory firm, and NAI Global strategically aligns with this desired expansion. We aren't changing what we do; we are just expanding and enhancing it. We are built for success, so now is the time to grow our operating businesses."

The additional 7,000 s/f of office space will house BSRE's continued growth and strategic pursuit to hire additional brokerage advisors to strengthen its position as a provider of end-to-end real estate services to investors and occupiers regionally and nationwide.

CEO James Scalo expressed his enthusiasm about the news: "We want to be clear. We are more than an owner. We are a full-service real estate advisory and are strategic in pursuing experienced talent to join our brokerage team."

NAI Global has a robust network of over 325 commercial real estate offices worldwide, with a presence in 65 countries. By joining forces with NAI Global, NAI Burns Scalo gains access to an extensive global platform, industry-leading resources, and cutting-edge technology, enhancing its ability to deliver exceptional service and solutions to clients locally, regionally, and nationally.

Vice president of brokerage Scott DiGuglielmo added, "Our partnership with NAI Global will enable us to broaden our reach, deepen our expertise, and tap into a wealth of market knowledge. We are confident that this affiliation will unlock new opportunities for growth and success, allowing us to serve our clients better and exceed their expectations."

In light of this collaboration, Burns Scalo Brokerage, LLC will now operate as NAI Burns Scalo, reflecting this strategic partnership's combined expertise and expanded services.
