After almost 35 years of working in real estate, I know this business inside-out... and I believe that deep industry knowledge coupled with integrity leads to long-term relationships and repeat business. I sell and rent property, of course, but I specialize in individual property management, together with building maintenance & management on behalf of the building's board of directors. I spent most of my career in New York City, where my company was trusted to provide rentals, sales and management consulting to 65 major landlords, with over 125,000 apartments, including all 27,000 apartments belonging to the late Fred Trump (Donald "The Apprentice" Trump's father).

in 2000, I have partnered with The Greenwald Company of San Diego, CA to develop and manage commercial and residential properties in California, Illinois and Ohio. We have completed over 300M in new development and managed numerous industrial, commercial and residential properties. This was an amazing learning process on both professional and personal levels.

Since 2006 I've been based in Panama, the fastest growing economy in Latin America, and one of the word's top-ranked retirement destinations. I deal with both city (mainly in the capital, Panama City) and beachfront (mainly in Coronado, the Pacific-side resort area, or on the Caribbean) properties. I manage apartments for their expatriate owners, streamline maintenance for condo buildings, and find premises for multinationals establishing their operations in Central America. Besides managing over 80 million dollars worth of real estate for individual owners, Panamerica Realty also manages large multifamily condo buildings, with over 700 units in total.

Status update as of October, 2015

My family and I have moved back to The USA for family reasons and now I am selectively exploring a position that would benefit from my vast experience managing diversified RE portfolios, turning around under-performing assets with lucrative results, and managing back office operations that, collectively, have required knowledge of the real estate industry to a degree that only someone with my background possesses.
