Livingston, N.J., October 25, 2017 – Gebroe-Hammer Associates has once again distinguished itself as a multi-family industry leader with two brokers named to the sector’s top-25 dealmakers throughout the entire country. Among those honored was Managing Director Joseph Brecher, who was recognized as an individual for overall transaction achievements recorded between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017. Brecher earned the highest national ranking for an individual broker.
The nation’s top 25 multi-family brokerage teams/individuals named by Real Estate Forum, a leading commercial real estate industry publication, hailed from institutional firms in California, Arizona and Texas, to Florida, Georgia and North Carolina as well as Michigan, Ohio, Connecticut and New York City. Gebroe-Hammer, based in Livingston, N.J., was the only firm covering New Jersey and Northeastern Pennsylvania represented on the list.
Overall, Brecher was ranked fourth as an individual – behind three “teams.”
As New Jersey and Northeastern Pennsylvania/Philadelphia’s preeminent market specialist, Brecher has more than 16 years multi-family investment brokerage expertise. Since joining Gebroe-Hammer in 2001, he has brokered more than $7 billion in multi-family real estate transactions, totaling over 50,000 units sold, many of which are among the firm’s and the region’s largest and most prominent trades.
Gebroe-Hammer’s brokers represent clients with investment interests in their submarkets of specialization as well as those that extend throughout the New Jersey/Pennsylvania/New York State geographic area and the greater Northeast. In collaboration with fellow Gebroe-Hammer brokers, Brecher has effectively expanded the firm’s client base from private individual owners – who have dominated New Jersey’s multi-family investment landscape for decades – to now include REITs, private equity firms and institutional investment entities.
