Background & Experience
Since joining NAI Platform, Felton McLaughlin has focused on the office market in the Capital Region. Areas of focus have been Albany, where he is on the board of the Downtown Albany Business Improvement District, and Colonie where he was Chairman of the Colonie Business Council for two years. As a private investor owning investment properties in Albany’s Center Square neighborhood, he has also focused on investment properties. Before joining Platform, he was a partner in a Capital Region real estate investment group. Portfolio properties included multi-family and commercial properties in Albany and Saratoga counties. Because of his background with technology start-ups, he has also been active in Tech Valley Angels Network, High Peaks Venture Partners, and the newly formed Al-Tech Technology Acceleration Fund, all Capital District investment groups dedicated to funding start-up companies in the region. Prior to his move to the Capital Region, Felton spent 15 years in and around New York City working in the technology industry with start-up companies supplying investment-oriented databases and software to Wall Street securities firms. While at (now part of Reuters), he helped launch a real-time equity research service for investment managers which grew into a $100 million business. Prior to Multex, he worked at Thomson Financial and on Wall Street at Shearson Lehman Brothers.

Client Testimonials

“When our office lease was coming to an end and it was time to consider moving to new space or negotiating an extension of our existing lease, we retained Felton McLaughlin and Platform Realty to represent us. It was one of the best decisions we have made. Not only are we very happy with our space and the terms of our lease, and not only did we save a lot of money under the terms they negotiated for us, but we also saved countless hours of attorneys' time that was better spent doing what we do best, and leaving to Platform what they do best. We would hire them again in a heartbeat.”
- O’Connell and Aronowitz, President • Jeff Sherrin

“Felton McLaughlin was an invaluable resource to us in our search for historic properties to rehabilitate and I look forward to working with him on other locations. We are actively seeking to purchase multi-family properties in the Capital Region in the 100-300 unit range. Please forward any suitable properties to Felton McLaughlin of NAI Platform.”
- Winn Development, Vice President • Rachel Edwards

“Felton and Peter plowed through every one of the very many obstacles to this deal, and without their concentrated guidance, this transaction would have fallen apart at any one of multiple points.”
- Attorney • Kevin Luibrand Esq.

“Felton McLaughlin and Joe Sausto, with Platform Realty Group, were able to find a bonafide buyer when no other real estate broker in the Capital District was able to do so. They both did a remarkable job of moving this transaction forward from preliminary contract negotiations to the eventual closing on the property. Felton and Joe were able to take a very difficult property to sell and turn it into a viable purchasing opportunity for the right buyer. I would highly recommend Platform Realty Group as a company, and Felton McLaughlin and Joe Sausto individually.”
- 800 North Pearl Street Associates, LP, General Partner • Mark Simmons
