Gebroe-Hammer was founded in 1975 by Mel Gebroe and Morris Hammer, long recognized as well-respected real estate industry icons. The firm quickly evolved to become one of the region’s largest and most influential companies focused on investment real estate transactions. Beginning in 1976, two entry-level sales associates spearheaded Gebroe-Hammer’s growth and expansion, rising through the ranks to become managing directors. Together, Ken Uranowitz and the late Robert Ploshnick established new sales benchmarks and carried forth Mr. Gebroe and Mr. Hammer’s standards for integrity, creative deal structuring and excellence. Today, Gebroe-Hammer continues to provide innovative professional brokerage services and solutions on behalf of a wide range of private owners, REITS, private equity firms and other institutional investors.
Gebroe-Hammer’s commitment to stay the course, in the wake of several historic economic cycles, and expand its professional staff has enhanced its distinctive posture within the commercial real estate industry. The firm has earned an unmatched reputation and extensive roster of long-time clients, spanning several generations, within the highly specialized multi-family investment market. Clients benefit from the unmatched experience, market knowledge and integrity of the firm’s long-term team members and staff of brokerage professionals, many of whom are up-and-comers, specializing in defined markets throughout New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, including Philadelphia.
