Over a cup of coffee on an August afternoon in 2022, two friends of twenty years continued their years-long discussion of their passion for entrepreneurship and the value of great relationships. The topic that day was the present commercial real estate brokerage business model. All of the large brokerage firms seemed to be doing the same things the same ways over and over again. It was like Covid never happened and it was hard to tell them all apart.
The large brokerage firm incentive structure was outdated, too. They simply rewarded brokers who produced the largest commissions. They did not reward brokers for client satisfaction. They did not reward brokers for the ethical or generous treatment of their own colleagues. They did not track or measure the quality of their own employees’ experience. The universal strategy for brokers who want to get to the top is ‘make a lot of money by any means necessary year after year and the company will let you do whatever you want.’
But if someone did start a company from the ground up, what would they choose to reward? Could a company exist that puts people over profit, puts positive client outcomes over egos and delivers unwavering advocacy for its people? Can it be a commercial real estate brokerage firm? This became the hypothesis for Singer Damareck Real Estate.
Michael Singer has spent the last 20+ years solely focused on the representation of companies that occupy real estate for the operation of their own businesses. He is well known as a creative problem solver, and is often sought out for his knowledge, expertise and unbiased support of businesses throughout the Baltimore area.
Micah Damareck has spent the last 20+ years in multiple executive roles in the areas of marketing, media, sales and construction. He possesses deep experience in business operations, coaching, leadership development and sales management. Micah has developed a strong network in the business, nonprofit and philanthropic community that he uses to support his clients, friends and associates at every turn.
Together, they formed Singer Damareck Real Estate in June of 2023 to find out what happens when a commercial real estate firm chooses to put people first.
