Five Core Advantages
Meridian’s investment sales group places an enormous premium on bringing a unique perspective to each property we market. By analyzing alternative and best uses, complex zoning considerations, and “manufacturing” buyers through creative equity and financing solutions, we specialize in unlocking and optimizing value for clients.
Our investment sales division uses rigorous data analysis to target digital and traditional marketing campaigns to ensure listings arrive in the hands of qualified buyers. Further, our team augments these high-end offerings by developing materials, videos, and mini-sites with zoning structures and line-by-line cash flow modeling in order to maximize value for clients.
Meridian’s investment sales teams pair our deep understanding of the equity capital markets with the company’s national prowess in debt capital markets to provide insight into value and timing of property sales, and use available financing alternatives to increase property value.
Meridian’s highly collaborative investment sales team doesn’t wait for the market to come to us. Rather, we actively engage buyers, generating value by placing a heavy emphasis on sourcing atypical buyers, conducting value-add property tours, shepherding sellers through the negotiation process, and facilitating efficient closings.
The investment sales group works collaboratively across Meridian’s three-business platform to procure the broadest base of prospective real estate buyers for each listing we are engaged on. Further, we serve our clients by always keeping an eye on who and what is next, maintaining real-time knowledge of the latest market entrants locally and internationally.

But once the initial shock wore off, the senior executive managing director at Meridian Investment Sales and her team figured out effective ways to surmount the challenges presented by COVID, and arranged several significant transactions, including the sale of One Union Square South — the first major institutional multifamily deal to have negotiated, signed, and closed in New York City during the pandemic.
Closing Through COVID: Perspectives from Meridian’s Amit Doshi and Shallini Mehra
With nearly 50 years of combined experience in New York City multifamily sales, Meridian’s Amit Doshi and Shallini Mehra have weathered many market cycles, including the downturns following 9/11 and the collapse of Lehman Brothers.
