DALLAS, Dec. 16, 2020—BBG, a leading national due diligence commercial real estate firm, today announced that it completed the acquisition of Nava Hurd Advisory Group, a combination of Brekan Nava Group, a Tempe, Ariz.-based commercial real estate appraisal firm, and Paradise Valley, Ariz.-based appraisal firm Hurd and Associates. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

The acquisition will complement and strengthen BBG’s presence in the greater Phoenix-Scottsdale area, a key strategic market considered as one of the top U.S. regions for real estate growth and investment. BBG ranks among the largest U.S. real estate valuation and assessment firms with 37 offices nationwide.

Several Nava Hurd Advisory Group associates will join BBG’s office serving the metropolitan Phoenix area including well-respected and longtime industry leaders Albert Nava, MAI, SGA, and Barott Hurd, both who were named as Directors.

Mr. Nava, President and sole owner of Brekan Nava Group, brings more than 40 years of experience in commercial real estate appraisal and consulting.

Hurd and Associates offered appraisals of all property types and market feasibility studies. With 35 years of experience, Mr. Hurd, a partner at Nava Hurd Advisory Group, has specialized in appraisals in hundreds of educational-related properties across the country. One of his major achievements was providing appraisal work for a major university during its transition from a “for-profit” to “non-profit” institution.

His past clients include balance sheet and agency lenders, owners, life insurance companies, and governmental agencies. Mr. Hurd is a certified appraiser in Arizona, Nevada and Texas.
