Santa Clara, CA (August 16, 2018) — Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) is pleased to announce that Senior Vice President John C. Vaughan, MAI, will lead its Valuation & Advisory (V&A) Vineyard & Wineries Specialty Practice. V&A’s Northern California team is headed by Senior Managing Director and Northern California Market Leader, Robby D. Perrino, MAI, CRE, CCIM. The office also welcomes experienced analysts James Masuda, Chris Deline and Joe Gigantino.
Vaughan, a specialist in wineries, vineyards and vineyard estates, has over 20 years of experience in the Central Coast and North Coast AVA (American Viticultural Area) of California, which span 11 counties. Vaughan will expand his practice throughout the wine regions of California, the Pacific Northwest, the Great Lakes, Texas and Virginia. “I look forward to leveraging our team’s talents as we work toward the common goal of providing comprehensive, best-in-class service for our clients,” said Vaughan.
“I learn something new every time I talk to John,” said John Busi, MAI, FRICS, V&A President. “If you’ve ever listened to winemakers speak about the complexity of their winemaking process you’d appreciate the same level of artistry and knowledge that John imparts when he’s describing the real estate. He’s an enthusiast as well as an expert.”
V&A now has five offices located throughout Northern California’s major employment centers. These professionals live and work in the markets they serve and with an average of more than 20 years of specialized experience, they are recognized local experts.
The expansion of the Northern California region coincides with V&A’s milestone of reaching 400 employees, nine specialty practices and 55 offices in four countries in less than two years. “This is an exhilarating time for our practice and our company, and everyone on our team is proud to be part of an ever-growing industry staple,” said Perrino.
