Vice President Captial Markets
When selling office and industrial properties throughout the Baltimore region, Andrew Finkelstein, JLL’s Vice President Capital Markets, enjoys telling the story of each property and building a narrative to convey its potential future.
He talks with potential owners about what the property will be in five years and what competing spaces in the area are doing. He also looks at how the asset could be changed to add increased value along with why clients should buy.
The University of Pennsylvania graduate came to JLL in 2016. He previously worked at David S. Brown Enterprises as a senior associate and vice president of business development at Residential Title and KatzAbosch, respectively.
For the past year and a half, Finkelstein has volunteered at Sharp Dressed Man, a nonprofit offering free, gently used donated suits to men going on interviews after undergoing job training. He likes to let each gentleman be involved in the process by asking them questions about their preferences and taking before-and-after photos once a suit has been chosen.
“These guys are proactively really trying to take a step forward to either turn their life around or stop a downward slide or just get restarted again,” he said.
Finkelstein has been a part of The Associated for 14 years by working to raise awareness and funds for programs that help those in need in Baltimore and Israel. He also is chair/co-founder of the real estate club at The Center Club.
“I think it’s a great organization that really does benefit Baltimore as a whole by having a place for people to come together to network, to socialize that is in Downtown Baltimore,” he said.
