REBNY Announces Ingenious Deal Award Nominees, Newmark and CBRE Dominate List

The Real Estate Board of New York today released the nominees for this year’s Most Ingenious Deal of the Year awards. Board president Steve Spinola said that REBNY had received 19 “very interesting” submissions for the 2013 honors. “As the number of submissions grows, the brokers continue to raise the bar,” Mr. Spinola said in a prepared statement.

Submissions are broken into sales, lease and finance categories. One thing that jumps out about the contending sales and lease deals is the number of brokers from CBRE and Newmark Grubb Knight Frank: eight of the 14 submissions come from the two firms. First, second and third place prize winners will be announced on April 23 at the 101 Club.

See the sales and lease nominees below.
