Founded in 1980.

Fighting for you ever since.

The New York commercial real estate market is a complex and confusing world of arcane laws, covert costs, calculating players, and competitive negotiations.


Which makes victory all the more sweet when we help our clients successfully achieve it.


For the past 40 years, we’ve proudly fought the good fight for businesses looking to lease, sublease, or move office, showroom, retail, or manufacturing space in Manhattan, as well as the outer boroughs. As New York’s largest independently owned tenant-focused commercial real estate brokerage, we’re dedicated to helping our clients secure the best deal possible in this ever-changing city.

Our fierce commitment to our clients comes from our founder, Norman Bobrow. He started the firm in 1980, declaring then and there that we’d work for tenants exclusively, with a laser focus on Manhattan. We don’t handle assignments from landlords. Nor do we own or manage any properties in NYC. Our sole obligation is to find and negotiate the best deal for you—and Norman never lets us forget it. (He still runs a weekly training session for all of our brokers. Around the industry, they say, “Send them to Bobrow to learn the business.”)

Talk with us. You wouldn’t believe the creative solutions we’ve put together. Or the savings we can help you unearth. Never mind the sanity we can preserve.
