The acquisition continues to strengthen Atwell’s resources and capabilities in the Mid-Atlantic.

“We both have a client-centric approach, making the addition of Karins to Atwell a great fit,” said Bill Anderson, Atwell’s Senior Vice President of Real Estate and Land Development in the U.S. East. “By leveraging their decades of experience within the Mid-Atlantic, we’ll be able to provide our clients with even more capabilities. We look forward to working with the Karins team to help our clients reach their goals.”

“The core values of Karins and Atwell are well-aligned,” said Dev Sitaram, President of Karins. “We’re focused on providing clients with the highest standards of quality and service.
