Ken Uranowitz has been named president of Livingston, NJ-based Gebroe-Hammer Associates, an investment brokerage firm specializing in multi-family sales. Uranowitz has risen through the ranks since being hired by Mel Gebroe and Morris Hammer at the firm’s inception in 1975.
According to Gebroe-Hammer, Uranowitz was hired as a sales associate at the age of 20 by the firm's founders following a lengthy appeal by his watchmaker/jeweler father, whose business was located across the street from Gebroe-Hammer’s offices. Over the ensuing 37-year career with the firm, Uranowitz has consistently set new records for sales and number of units sold, which total in the billions of dollars and thousands of units. He also played a key role in the firm's emergence as a major player in the region's multi-family investment market.
The firm recently closed out a record-setting third quarter this year closing 30 multi-family deals totaling 1,400 units valued at more than $100 million. In one four-week timeframe alone, Gebroe-Hammer closed 13 deals representing 724 units, which sold for in excess of $54 million.
Uranowitz is active in a wide range of commercial real estate
industry programs and associations. His professional memberships include the New Jersey Apartment Association (NJAA) and Property Owners Association (POA).
Gebroe-Hammer Associates specializes in suburban and urban high-rise, mid-rise and garden-apartment properties throughout New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, including Philadelphia. The firm also markets mixed-use and free-standing office and retail properties on behalf of a wide range of long-term clients, including private owners, REITS, private equity firms and other institutional investors. Gebroe-Hammer is an eight-time CoStar Power Broker Award winner.
