Bestreich Realty Group (BRG), a leading NYC investment sales firm with a historic focus on Brooklyn, announced that Zachary Ziskin has joined as a senior associate who will lead the firm’s lower Manhattan team in the sale of mixed-use, multifamily and retail transactions.
Prior to BRG, Ziskin worked for a large national brokerage for seven years, focusing on sales and underwriting of investment properties throughout the lower Manhattan markets of Tribeca, West Village, Greenwich Village, Chinatown and Soho to name a few.
“Zack repeatedly demonstrates dedication to his client relationships by providing and implementing viable strategies and recommendations to support his client needs,” said BRG’s President Derek Bestreich. “His passion, enthusiasm, market understanding and diligence make him a valuable asset to his clients and partners and we’re happy to have him as part of our team.”
In his career Ziskin has sold over 30 properties in lower Manhattan totaling approximately $200 million in sales value and has handled over a dozen 1031 Exchanges. Two of his noteworthy recent transactions include the sale of 77 Madison Street, a 32-unit mixed use rent regulated building owned by two prominent families in Chinatown and the sale of 53 Wooster Street, a vacant commercial townhouse on Wooster Street, off Broome in the heart of Soho.
“Zack works efficiently to get his clients to the closing table,” said BRG’s Executive Vice President Adam Lobel, who will work with Ziskin, along with Justin Zeitchik and Ethan Frank on the company’s lower Manhattan team. The team is off to a quick start with current exclusive listings including an 11-unit mixed use property at 13-15 Christopher Street in the West Village, a net leased J.Crew property located at 50 Hudson Street in Tribeca, and a mixed use 24-unit located at 83 Henry Street in the Lower East Side collectively totaling $29 million in offering value.
Ziskin was first exposed to real estate at a young age working with his father in a family-run real estate company that owned and operated commercial buildings in Queens. “That experience taught me a lot about building mechanics, operations, tenant relations, maintenance, tax implications and financing alternatives,” said Ziskin, who graduated with a bachelor’s degree in business administration from SUNY Geneseo. In his free time he enjoys snowboarding, traveling, tennis and Crossfit.
