Livingston, N.J., November 30, 2022 – Gebroe-Hammer Associates President Ken Uranowitz has been named among the Power 50 in Real Estate for 2022 by NJBIZ, one of New Jersey’s leading business journals. This marks the second consecutive year Uranowitz, who has spent his entire 47-year multifamily investment brokerage career with the Livingston-based Gebroe-Hammer, was selected as one of the state’s top commercial real estate executives.
Widely recognized for his client-centered leadership approach, Uranowitz is credited with charting and implementing the firm’s strategic evolution from a single-state boutique firm to the nation’s top multifamily-focused investment firm. In October, Gebroe-Hammer – thanks to Uranowitz’s leadership – was recognized for a third time as a Multifamily Influencer by GlobeSt and Real Estate Forum, both of which are nationally respected commercial real estate publications. During the pandemic year of 2020, he also earned the publications’ Best Bosses/Leadership in Commercial Real Estate ranking for an ability to navigate business in times of historic uncertainty.
According to the announcement in NJBIZ:
“Gebroe-Hammer Associates closed out 2021 by besting its all-time-high sales benchmark set in 2019, recording full-year results of $2.02 billion. At the close of Q3 in 2022, the firm reported more than $1.35 billion in sales across 79 deals and more than 6,500 units – creeping up on that current record-high figure as the end of year closes in. That success is spearheaded by Uranowitz, president of the Livingston-based brokerage focused on multifamily investment sales, who’s been on board since Gebroe-Hammer was founded 47 years ago. And to him, “The stars remain aligned for multifamily.” Beyond hitting – and surpassing – its own transaction benchmarks, the firm also consistently outpaces a competitive set of larger institutional brokerages in the sector.” ♦
Widely recognized for its consistent sales performance, Gebroe-Hammer has garnered numerous other firm and individual broker honors. It is a 17-time CoStar Power Broker and has been named to several industry publications rankings and Top Brokerage Firm lists. In addition to NJBIZ and Real Estate Forum/GlobeSt, these include Real Estate New Jersey and Mid-Atlantic Real Estate Journal.
