CHICAGO—Hotel brokers Scott D. Brash and Lili Gewargis of Brash Realty, Co. have decided to join forces with Marcus & Millichap’s National Hospitality Group in Chicago, according to Gregory A. LaBerge, the NHG’s national director. Brash will have the title of senior director of the National Hospitality Group and Gewargis will join as an associate.

You would be hard-pressed to find another hotel broker in the country with more transactional experience than Scott Brash,” says LaBerge. “And Lili, in her own right, brings more than 13 years of transactional experience to complement Scott. We couldn’t be happier and we are ecstatic to have Scott and Lili join our national team.”

Brash and Gewargis will focus on the sale of hospitality investment properties on behalf of institutional and private investors, predominantly throughout the Midwest.

In my years in the industry I’ve never seen such a unique platform for creating a competitive bidding process that maximizes results for hotel owners,” says Brash. “Having an opportunity to join a firm, whose value proposition to clients is so strong, was very appealing to both Lili and myself.”

Brash Realty was one of the founding firms of the Motel Brokers Association of America (now Hotel Brokers International). Scott served on the HBI board of directors for eight years, and has been given their “National Salesman of the Year” award. During Brash’s 37-year career, he has helped complete more than 375 career transactions.
