DUX Real Estate Advisory Group LLC, a new private company that provides turnaround services for the real estate and financial industries, has been launched. Denise Nunez will serve as the company’s CEO, leading it through initial plans to focus on the Southwest markets and a 12-month strategic plan to expand across the United States. In the days ahead, DUX will announce strategic alliances that will allow the company to provide local services in its target markets, Nunez said.
In April, DUX reached a strategic-alliance agreement with Dynamic Management to provide asset-management services for clients in Arizona. Dux will provide feasibility studies, design and engineering, construction, asset management, bank and creditor negotiations, and turnaround services for Dynamic Management customers.
