About Therese O’Brian

I believe that every challenge creates an even greater opportunity! I believe in challenging the status quo. I believe that we will get further together than apart. And I believe my clients deserve more than just a broker; they deserve a partner. Over the course of my 25+ year career in the professional services industry, clients have turned to me to create innovative solutions, inspire enthusiasm and advocate for their interests.

My career began in sales and marketing, where I held executive-level roles with ALM Media, LexisNexis, and Thomson Reuters using emerging technologies to create innovative content marketing strategies that generate leads, acquire customers and build brands. The turning point for me came in 2014 when I joined NJ Advance Media as Director of Real Estate Sales. Here, I developed a number of innovative and award-winning cross-channel marketing campaigns for office, industrial and multi-family property owners. It was this role that ignited my passion for commercial real estate.

Today, I am a Commercial Real Estate Professional with Newmark Associates, where I partner with clients to help them navigate the real estate landscape and deliver the results they expect and deserve. My approach is guided by a customer-first mentality. I am committed to doing what’s best for my clients. My extensive marketing background, strong business acumen and deep knowledge of the commercial industry give me a unique vantage point that allows me to deliver the best outcome for my clients.

I know how to leverage office space to maximize workflow, collaboration and brand perception. After all, it’s not just about the physical space; it’s about how the space—the layout, the location and even the cost—supports the success of a company’s operations, culture and client acquisition strategies. An active member of several professional associations, including CREW-NJ, NIAOP, CoreNet, NJBIA, RNBP, NJ Legal Industry Professionals, I always have my finger on the pulse of the latest trends and guidelines—from safety measures, HVAC systems and CDC guidelines to general trends in marketing, legal and environmental regulations and more.

Newmark Associates, a certified WBE and member of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), embodies the meaning of inspiration, collaboration and enthusiasm, and I am proud to be part of a team that works together in pursuit of a common goal: success for our clients.

Therese is a producer behind the desk and in the field. She is client first, results-driven, and explores all avenues to achieve a desired goal.. What's more, she is current. She has knowledge (and experience) that many don't. I will attest with confidence that whatever position Therese seeks, she brings the qualifications to produce results necessary for success.
