February 2020, SALISBURY, MD – George Merritt, an associate advisor at NAI Coastal, and Wesley Cox, CCIM a Senior Advisor with SVN announce the sale of 2.6 acres of industrial land fronting on Windsor Dr. and Shipley Dr. in the Northwood Industrial Park to a growing local company, Simpson’s Towing. Simpson’s Towing has been located at 1308 N. Division St. and fronting N. Salisbury Blvd. for many years and will continue to operate out of that location as this purchase will serve as an expansion of their business. Simpson’s Towing is a family business that started in 1955 who specializes in towing services as well as emergency roadside assistance. They are available 24/7 and can tow from small vehicles to larges buses and tractor trailers.

George Merritt began looking for a property for a client to purchase somewhere near or within the Northwood Industrial Park. After he and the client identified the perfect site that was not currently on the market Merritt immediately reached out to Wesley Cox at SVN who he knew had a strong existing relationship with the owner of the property. For the benefit of his client, George knew that Wesley could use his existing relationship with the owner to help navigate a smooth transaction for his client. Less than 90-days later the two completed the sale with both the buyer and seller walking away very happy.

“In my nearly two decades of commercial real estate brokerage I have seen few transactions that exemplify the definition of proactive broker cooperation like this one, and all for the benefit of both clients. George went out of his way to bring me into this deal because he new it would make for a smoother transaction.”, Cox commented about the sale.
