Barton DeLacy

Executive Director • United States

P. Barton DeLacy rejoined Cushman & Wakefield (C&W) in 2020 after returning to the Pacific Northwest from Chicago. There, he had run his own national valuation consulting firm for nearly a decade. His 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. He has published peer-reviewed work in The Appraisal Journal and The Journal of the International Machinery and Technical Specialties Committee of the American Society of Appraisers among others.

In addition to more conventional appraisal assignments, Mr. DeLacy’s counseling practice centers on problem solving engagements where valuation is incidental to the solution. With an emphasis on litigation support, his experience includes land use impact studies, trust and estates, property tax consulting, integrated business, personal and real property appraisals and counseling for non-profit businesses and institutions with real estate assets.

Mr. DeLacy’s seasoned perspective spans all North American geographies and touches virtually all property types. Previously a Senior Managing Director with C&W 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 Pacific Northwest for Arthur Andersen LLP. DeLacy began his valuation career as a residential appraiser for the Oregon-based Benj. Franklin Savings and Loan.
