Our mission is to provide outstanding management, leasing and sales services to the New York City market place. We are a boutique real estate company that owns and operates first-class office and retail properties in prime locations in midtown Manhattan and we take pride in building enduring tenant relationships which begin with negotiating a lease and continue through the term of the tenancy. We believe in developing connections with our tenants by focusing our attention on the day-to-day operational needs and requirements of our individual tenants and by accommodating and adapting to their future needs for additional space and extended lease terms. We understand that tenants appreciate the personalized hands-on approach that we offer. Our services are provided through a talented team of professionals, including licensed brokers, sales representatives, building managers, and in-house accountants and counsel. Our expertise is also available on a contract basis to outside landlords who are looking for an accomplished, experienced and professional team with a reputation for consistently delivering the highest standards of leasing and management services.
