President’s Message

New York City Chapter


I am honored to serve as the new President of the New York City chapter of RELA. Founded in 1991, the NYC chapter is the longest standing and largest RELA chapter, consisting of nearly 300 members and growing. I have experienced firsthand how RELA affords each of its members the opportunity to build out his or her professional network, stay up-to-date on industry trends, and learn from many of the icons in the New York City real estate industry. It’s never too early or too late in your career to take advantage of the opportunities RELA membership provides. I encourage you to join us for the 2021-2022 year.  Feel free to reach out to me directly if you have any questions or recommendations to improve the RELA member experience.


Thanks for supporting RELA NYC.
