My family has been in ownership/management/brokerage since 1932. I am a native New Yorker who grew up hearing about deals and was always fascinated by architecture and buildings. I am the fourth generation of my family to make my career in the real estate business. I have represented numerous prestigious clients, and have personally sold nearly $500 million worth of commercial property, including the Daily News Building. I am also a landlord and see transactions from both points of view and can therefore help my client make a deal that works for both the Buyer and Seller or Landlord and Tenant as the case may be. My business philosophy is 'win-win ', or we don’t make the deal. Ideally, I try to create an agreement that benefits everybody. If everyone doesn’t come out happy, I haven’t done my job.
Recently I have represented Stellar Management in their lease of 36,000 square feet to Wework and represented a Purchaser of a Walgreen’s net lease in order to satisfy their 1031 tax exchange requirements.

Arranging multiple showings and working closely with his customers, sometimes over months, to be sure they are fully satisfied with their choices. Understanding that while in the end this is a financial transaction, it is also a stressful and confusing one, and that patience and understanding make the entire experience less so.
