BUFFALO, NY, December 8, 2022 – The Western New York Chapter of the New York State Commercial Association of REALTORS® (NYSCAR) is pleased to announce its 22nd Annual Awards Dinner and installation of officers’ ceremony.

This year’s event will be held on Thursday evening, February 9, 2023 at the Forbe’s Theater, 500 Pearl St. in downtown Buffalo, N.Y. with an open bar starting at 5:30 p.m. and dinner at 7:00 p.m. sharp. Parking will be available in the adjacent garage.

The swearing-in ceremony of new officers will be followed by the presentation of several awards.  Awards will be given for Lifetime Achievement, Meritorious Service and the Largest Broker Assisted Lease and Sale Transactions of 2022. We are very pleased to announce that the 2022 recipient for the Meritorious Service Award will be Douglass Jemal of Douglas Development.  This year’s Lifetime Achievement Award recipient will be Nick Malagisi, SIOR & Managing Director of SVN Commercial Realty. Malagisi and Alan Hastings were the founding members of this annual NYSCAR chapter awards dinner where they were co-chairman for the first 15 years.

Malagisi has had a New York State (NYS) Broker’s license for 49 years and is a founding member of the New York State Commercial Association of Realtors in 1996. Prior to the formation of NYSCAR, Malagisi was a member of the Commercial Investment Division of the Buffalo Niagara Board of Realtors (BNAR) with his commercial realty firm, Buffalo Real Estate Group.

Malagisi became a franchisee of Sperry Van Ness Commercial Real Estate Advisors in 2005 after recognizing the many advantages of being part of a nationwide network of commercial real estate brokers and how the internet would be game charger in expanding the geographic reach of the investment brokerage business.

It is in investment brokerage and, in particular, the self storage sector, that Malagisi has excelled with a billion dollars in self storage sales throughout his career. Malagisi began his self storage career in the 1980s working for industry leader, Public Storage, in their corporate real estate department covering a territory from Washington, D.C, to Boston. This experience led him to be named National Director of the self storage specialty group for SVN Corporate, a position he still holds today after 16 years at SVN.

Malagisi is currently a Director on the New York State Self Storage Association (NYSSA) and is the Program Chair for the various events held throughout the year, including the annual Investment Forum held in New York City. He is also a lifetime member of the national Self Storage Association (SSA).

Malagisi earned his SIOR designation in 2008, one of only 3,500 members throughout the country. He has won several industry awards over the years, including  CoStar Broker of the year; Partner’s Circle within SVN; and largest sales transaction for NYSCAR.

Malagisi is a veteran of the US Army with a tour of duty in South Vietnam. Nick and his wife raised their family in the Buffalo area and now split their time between Buffalo and West Palm Beach.

Sponsorships are still available, and reservations may be made at a cost of $100 each for NYSCAR members and $125 for non-members by contacting any of the co-chairmen or by completing the attached form and mailing to the address below.  Please make checks payable to WNY-NYSCAR.
