op investment sales broker Greg Corbin has joined Rosewood Realty Group as Executive Managing Director after a decade with Besen & Associates. He will continue to lead The Corbin Group at Rosewood and will be accompanied by brokers Aaron Kline, Brandon Serota and Chaya Milworn.
“Greg is an exceptional broker and having him and his team join us is a major win for the firm” said Rosewood Realty’s President Aaron Jungreis. “As we expect the multifamily market to shift further, Greg’s deep-seated relationships and experience in the distressed arena will be crucial to transacting in the bankruptcy, foreclosure and stalled development markets.”
“In addition to being an accomplished deal maker in the multifamily and distressed space, Greg will bring another dimension of marketing and branding to our platform,” added Jungreis.
Corbin, who comes with extensive market expertise and a notable track record, said he and his team are thrilled to step into their new roles. “Aaron Jungreis has an extraordinary reputation and is one of the most prolific deal makers in the industry,” said Corbin.
“My rapport with Aaron and other veteran Rosewood brokers like Michael Guttman made it a natural fit, and I’m excited to begin working with them,” added Corbin. “I received great offers from people I highly respect at other top tier firms but felt that my brokerage style was the most complimentary with Aaron’s.”
Corbin has been involved in the sale of $875 million worth of commercial real estate and currently has four buildings in contract with an aggregate value of $34.6 million. He has sold property in almost all asset classes, including: multi-family, development sites, factory/warehouses, transitional housing facilities, bulk condominium packages, industrial, retail, office, mixed-use and commercial buildings.
Additionally, Corbin has extensive expertise in the bankruptcy and foreclosure fields. Over the past few years he sold nearly a dozen buildings in Chapter 7 and 11 with an aggregate value of $135 million. Two of the complex deals Corbin is known for include: the $22.9 million sale of 2520 Tilden Avenue in Brooklyn and the $25 million sale of 142-28 38th Avenue in Queens (he also represented the debtor in a $19 million recapitalization two years prior).
At Rosewood, one of NYC’s top three firms in terms of transaction volume, Corbin can continue to drive business with a “broad reach” throughout the city, since Rosewood does not have a territory system. His previous closed transactions have been almost evenly distributed throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx.
Prior to joining Rosewood, Corbin spent a decade at Besen & Associates, where he won the prestigious awards of Deal Maker of the Year in 2015 and 2017, Broker of the Year in 2014, and Team Player Award in 2014. Before Besen, he was a Director of Sales at Massey Knakal Realty Services.
Corbin has been the Co-Chairman of the YJP Real Estate Division since 2012, and was presented with its prestigious Leadership Award at the organization’s 1,000+ person Cipriani Gala in 2014. He is also the Co-Founder of the NYIC Real Estate Group, executive board member of FFT, Co-Founder of The Legion, and founding board member of Give To Give.
Corbin is a graduate of Horace Mann and Boston University. He is a native New Yorker and lives on the Upper West Side with his wife and children.
