Our History

We began operations in 1990 when Jim Glickman opened Glickman Real Estate, Inc. on Worcester’s Dix Street. In 1999, he joined forces with Peter Kovago, creating Glickman Kovago Company Inc. to serve an expanding list of commercial brokerage clients. The 2007 move to Harvard Street was a positive one, and that year Michael Jacobs joined the firm as a partner and the name again changed to Glickman Kovago & Company.

We expanded with the addition of an in-house construction team in 2011. When we joined NAI Global in 2015, our name changed again to NAI Glickman Kovago & Jacobs.

Our firm’s growth continued, prompting our move to One Mercantile Street in 2017. We are excited to play a role in Worcester’s downtown renaissance.


Worcester is our home, and we want to give back to the city and its people in as many ways as we can. We’ve had a longstanding relationship with Friendly House, which provides family support services and afterschool programs for children. Through a building-wide holiday fundraiser and toy drive, we bring toys for distribution to Friendly House families, helping close to 2,000 children. Throughout the year, our employees serve on local boards, coach youth sports and serve the city’s entrepreneurial ecosystem with their ideas and energy.


While we are proud of our local expertise, we have reach far beyond Greater Worcester and Central Massachusetts. Joining NAI Global brought our firm into the single largest global network of owner-operated commercial real estate brokerage firms. Ours is one of more than 375 offices and our team members stand among some 6,700 brokers who are ready to market properties in Worcester to the world beyond New England.
