40 Under 40: “Career goals are always evolving and I hope that remains, even 10 years from now”
What is your greatest professional accomplishment? My first equity raise was $250,000 and it took a while to come together. My last raise was $7 million in under 30 days. I’m hoping my greatest professional accomplishment is still yet to come. What is your most notable project, deal or transaction? I arranged a programmatic joint venture that has acquired over 1,000 multifamily units together in just one year. How do you contribute to your company and/or the industry? I help CRE sponsors graduate from a friends and family equity syndication model to an institutional JV model by introducing them to single-source equity providers. This enables my clients to buy more properties and invest in larger deals. Who or what has been the strongest influence in your career? Ira Zlotowitz, the president and co-founder of Eastern Union. He opened the door for me to do what I’m doing today and I can't think of anything that I would enjoy doing more.
