Livingston, N.J., October 24, 2022 – Gebroe-Hammer Associates has been named a 2022 Multifamily Influencer by GlobeSt and Real Estate Forum, both of which are nationally respected commercial real estate publications. This is the second time the firm has been ranked among the top multifamily investment brokerage firms nationwide.
In 2020, Ken Uranowitz, president, earned the publications’ Best Bosses/Leadership in Commercial Real Estate ranking while Executive Managing Directors David Oropeza and Joseph Brecher were named individual Multifamily Influencers in 2021 and 2020, respectively.
According to the announcement in Real Estate Forum, this year’s honorees were selected because of a demonstrated ability to successfully navigate the shifting tides, “leaving little doubt that this year’s recipients … are up for the challenge.” Here is what the media outlets had to say about Gebroe-Hammer Associates:
“What started as a boutique investment brokerage with an apartment building niche 47 years ago has evolved into a multifamily investment sales leader primarily in the Northeast. Established in 1975 by the late founders Mel Gebroe and Morris Hammer, Gebroe-Hammer Associates is currently one of the most sought-after multifamily investment brokerage firms, specializing in sales that range from new construction class A trophy properties to class B/C assets with value-add and property repositioning potential.
“Led by president Ken Uranowitz and executive managing directors David Oropeza and Joseph Brecher, the firm has built a leadership position throughout New Jersey submarkets and established a strong presence in Eastern Pennsylvania and the state of New York by orchestrating some of the top single multifamily asset and portfolio transactions. Between 2020 and mid-2022, the firm’s multifamily-focused sales totaled 258 deals, 24,471 units and $4.32 billion. In addition, the company’s leadership serves as mentors for Gebroe-Hammer Associates’ broker trainee program – of which Uranowitz, Oropeza and Brecher are alum. For the program, company and industry veterans continually help identify and oversee up-and-coming talent and share industry wisdom.” ♦
