SEATTLE-Rob MacAulay is leaving developer Martin Smith Inc. after five years as a principal to become a partner at Meriwether Partners, a newly formed Seattle-based commercial real estate services firm. The move takes place Oct. 1.

“I have a strong interest in tenant representation, mortgage brokerage and investment sales, none of which are services currently provided at Martin Smith,” says MacAulay, who handled the headquarters leases for RealNetworks, Starbucks, Adobe Systems and WRQ.

Prior to joining Martin Smith, MacAulay practiced real estate law for 15 years, the bulk of which were as a founding partner at Alston, Courtnage, MacAulay and Proctor. At Martin Smith, MacAulay focused on acquisitions, leasing and asset management. At Meriwether, he will focus mainly on acquisition services for clients.

MacAulay says he will “miss the gang” at Martin Smith, but plans to keep in touch by continuing to provide mortgage brokerage and investment sales services to Martin Smith “for years to come.” If familiarity plays a factor, Meriwether has good odds of keeping the assignment. In making the move, MacAulay joins former Martin Smith principals Robert Briscoe and Joel Aslanian.

Meriwether Partners was established earlier this year to provide real estate investment and occupancy services. The Meriwether Capital division provides clients with commercial real estate acquisition, disposition, and financing services. The Meriwether Advisors division offers tenant representation, corporate services and consulting services. The firm’s offices are located at 1100 Dexter Avenue North along South Lake Union in Downtown Seattle.
