Growing up in a family that owned and managed buildings on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, Gerald is in the unique position to understand the business of Real Estate from both sides of the table. That unique insider’s perspective has been an essential tool for the more than 10 years that Gerald has been licensed as Real Estate Salesperson. It is has also allowed him to have a keen understanding of where the market has come from, but more importantly, where it is going.
Gerald’s goal above all else is to provide value to the people that he works with, through his extensive market knowledge, dedication, and hard work. New York City real estate transactions, across the spectrum, are all nuanced and require one to be malleable, dynamic, and think outside the box at all times, in order to deliver the best outcomes.

In order to be able to best operate in this ever changing landscape Gerald finds it essential to call upon past professional, educational, and personal experiences.
Gerald has a bachelors degree in History from Hunter College and prior to working in the Real Estate Industry industry, he worked in Business Development in both the Technology and Publishing space. He also has extensive experience in the Food and Beverage Industry.
