The company has a strong belief in giving top level service and attention to each of its clients and to employ the highest standards and integrity. Our goal is not simply to service our clients – but to add extra value to the point that our clients rave about us (as such our clients are our best way of getting new clients). In representing Landlords, we seek to lease to Tenants that add value to a building and to a neighborhood. We have been successful in being a “change agent” in entire neighborhoods – such as Hell’s Kitchen.

The firm has represented and worked with  a variety of building Owners, Coops and Condominiums, including but not limited to Jamestown Property, Alchemy, Archstone Smith, Stonehenge Partners, Stellar Management, Thor Equity, Clinton Housing Development Company, Suzuki Capital, Janus Property, Treetop Development, Dermot, FBE, Paige Management, and a host of others.
