His thoughtful approach has resulted in more than 20 million square feet—or more than $2 billion in total transaction value—in combined leases and sales.
Steven is a data-driven provider of real estate solutions who utilizes the latest technology and advanced market insight based upon intense analysis of historical and current trends—to best advise his clients and obtain the most advantageous positioning on their behalf. He also nurtures and maintains strong personal relationships with his clients to better understand their needs and execute what is most important to them. Steven brings his hard work and perseverance as strategic partner to global corporations and entrepreneurial clients alike. This approach, and his dedication to the ongoing improvement of his craft, led Real Estate Forum (formerly Real Estate New Jersey) to recognize him in 2009 as one of “Tomorrow’s Industry Leaders”—a list of the top 30 under 30 rising young stars in the real estate industry.
In 2012, Steven was awarded the NAIOP Industrial Deal of the Year for leasing ±345,000 square feet to Peapod at Prologis Pulaski Distribution Center in Jersey City, New Jersey. The build-to-suit transaction was notable for procuring more than $30 million in state incentives for Peapod and bringing more than 400 new jobs to New Jersey. Steven was nominated a second time for NAIOP’s Industrial Deal of the Year in 2016 for leasing ±460,000 square feet to Serta Simmons Bedding in Carteret, New Jersey. In 2017, he was awarded another NAIOP Industry Deal of the Year Award for his team’s Blue Apron/Duke Realty transaction in Linden, New Jersey. The recognition was received for the ±1.1MM-sq.-ft. redevelopment of the former General Motors assembly plant, which revived an area that had lost thousands of jobs after the facility’s closing. The project was ultimately lease to several tenants anchored by Blue Apron, Wayfair and Unitex.
Most recently, in July 2018, Steve was named a NJBIZ 40 Under 40 Award recipient. These accomplished young professionals are names to remember in their fields in the years to come.
