“You would be hard-pressed to find another hotel broker in the country with more transactional experience than Scott Brash,” LaBerge said. “And Lili, in her own right, brings more than 13 years of transactional experience to complement Scott. We couldn’t be happier and we are ecstatic to have Scott and Lili join our national team.”

Brash and Gewargis will focus on the sale of hospitality investment properties on behalf of institutional and private investors, predominantly throughout the Midwest.

"In my years in the industry I’ve never seen such a unique platform for creating a competitive bidding process that maximizes results for hotel owners,” Brash said. “Having an opportunity to join a firm, whose value proposition to clients is so strong, was very appealing to both Lili and myself.”

Brash Realty was one of the founding firms of the Motel Brokers Association of America (now Hotel Brokers International, or HBI). Brash served on the HBI board of directors for eight years, and achieved that organization’s prestigious “National Salesman of the Year” award.  Both he and Gewargis have each won numerous other top broker awards.  During Brash’s long career, he has been involved in more than 375 career transactions.

“Combining the accomplishments of Brash Realty with the platform and commitment of Marcus & Millichap creates a real solution for hotel owners and investors,” LaBerge said.
