Becoming New York's Top Broker with Bob Knakal
He is currently the Chairman, Investment Sales with JLL Capital Markets in New York, where he leads the investment sales division, but how did he become one of New York City's best-known deal-makers?
In 1988 he formed Massey Knakal Realty Services, New York’s #1 building sales firm, along with his partner Paul J. Massey Jr.
From 1988 through 2014, Massey Knakal closed over 6,000 transactions with an aggregate value in excess of $23 billion!
To date, Bob Knakal has been personally responsible for the sale of more than 1,864 buildings and over $18 billion in sales, generally considered to be the highest total ever for a single broker in New York.
At the end of 2014, Cushman & Wakefield acquired Massey Knakal for a reported $100M, and Bob joined Cushman & Wakefield as Chairman of New York Investment Sales.
