SALISBURY, MARYLAND— November 30, 2021— The Principals of NAI Coastal are pleased to announce the growth of their specialized brokerage team with the addition of Associate Advisors Doug Dashiell and Shelby Gillis. Both advisors venture into commercial brokerage backed by a lifetime of industry exposure in relation to real estate development and property management.

“I’m looking forward to leveraging my experience in property acquisition and portfolio management to help my future clients capitalize on opportunity in our regional market,” said Dashiell. “Quality investment properties are in high demand and after spending years analyzing investments on behalf of my family’s business, I feel I am qualified to help investors identify and acquire smart, profitable assets.”

Dashiell is well versed in all aspects of the commercial real estate industry. At times, he has been responsible for the management of over 1,200 commercial and residential units.
