SEATTLE, Wash., October 14, 2020 – Cushman & Wakefield today announced that veteran real estate counselor P. Barton DeLacy, MAI, CRE has rejoined the company as Executive Director in Valuation & Advisory after returning to the Pacific Northwest (PNW) from Chicago.

Barton DeLacy

There, he had run his own boutique valuation consulting firm for nearly a decade. DeLacy will officially be based in Cushman & Wakefield's Seattle office.

In addition to more conventional appraisal assignments, DeLacy’s consulting practice centers on valuation counseling and expert testimony. His services include land use impact studies, trust and estate valuations, damages modeling, property tax consulting, integrated business, personal and real property appraisals and counseling for non-profit businesses and institutions with real estate assets.

His unique Renewable Energy Valuation specialty focuses on the real estate implications of electric power generated when using renewable fuels; i.e. wind, hydro, solar, biomass or other non-fossil resources.

Jay Booth, MAI, CRE Senior Managing Director and Region Lead for V&A at Cushman & Wakefield, said, “We are happy to have Barton back with us. Barton’s role will be regional in nature, helping cover the PNW with regard to consulting, eminent domain, tax, litigation support, energy, and other unique aspects of our business.”

Los Angeles Regional Lead, Eric Garfield, MAI, CRE said, “I have known Barton for many years through the Counselors of Real Estate ® and we are delighted to have him join our Dispute Analysis and Trusts and Estates Portfolio Valuation teams for the Pacific Northwest.”

DeLacy’s seasoned perspective spans all North American geographies and touches virtually all property types. Previously a Senior Managing Director with Cushman & Wakefield in Chicago, DeLacy logged over 20 years as a partner or principal of fee appraisal and consulting firms in Portland, Oregon. From 1998-2002, he led the real estate consulting practice in the PNW region for Arthur Andersen LLP. DeLacy began his valuation career at an Oregon-based Savings and Loan.

DeLacy said “I am honored to be able to work with Cushman & Wakefield once again; it truly is coming home. The firm is simply a leader in the industry, with an unmatched platform to better serve our clients.”

DeLacy has maintained appraisal certifications in several states as well as California, Oregon and Washington. He holds a Masters in Urban Planning from Portland State University and a BA from Oregon’s Willamette University. During his years in Chicago he served as President of the Illinois Coalition of Appraisal Professionals (ICAP) and has been active in outside civic organizations.
