Nicholas Maria joined Newmark Associates CRE as a Sales Associate in 2019 after more than 25 years as a successful marketing and sales executive in the music recording industry and over 15 years in commercial real estate sales. At United Artists Liberty Records/Atlantic Records as Vice President and Senior Vice President of Sales, he generated over $1.5 billion in gross sales, playing a key role in Atlantic becoming a flagship label and winning many platinum and gold records sales awards.
As a consultant to several record companies and Vice President for a start-up record company, he represented individual artists to regional and national retail chain executives, increasing revenue for diverse genres of musical talent through innovative sales and marketing campaigns.
To the commercial real estate industry, he brings years of strategic planning, marketing, training and supervision of project teams and internal staff, managing P&L, and development of long-term, loyal relationships with senior executives – expertise and experience all vital to managing transactions with clients in sales and leasing transactions.
Over the past 15 years, Mr. Maria has represented clients throughout Morris and Essex Counties for Weichert and Vanguard, completing lease and sales transactions for notable locals such as Subway, Luxe Auto Leasing, Beach Bum Tanning, a Dover strip mall, a Caldwell office building and Whippany land parcels.
With such an accomplished sales background, he is able to communicate with all clients in simple terms that allow them to not only feel comfortable, but to understand how the process of transacting commercial real estate business works.
A resident of Morris County for over 35 years, Nick is happily married with two adult children with two grandchildren expected later in 2019. He enjoys travel, swimming, and golf.
