Eastern Consolidated last week announced the formation of mother-and-daughter brokerage team Ronda and Jamie Rogovin.
While Ronda Rogovin has served as a broker at Eastern for 31 years and has been responsible for more than $500 million in commercial real estate sales, it was the hiring of her 24-year-old daughter, Jamie Rogovin, that spurred last week’s news.
Jamie Rogovin was a founding partner of Little Giants Productions, a music production company based in Harrisonburg, Va. Earlier, she served at the Atlantic Records imprint of the Warner Music Group under the vice president of the artists & repertoire department. She has also worked at Sony Music Entertainment.
Cushman & Wakefield, which in recent weeks has been on a hiring tear, has tapped Michael Hart to lead the firm’s corporate occupier & investor services group, it was announced last week. He will be based in New York City.
Mr. Hart, who most recently served as a vice president at Jones Lang LaSalle, will be responsible for managing all corporate account services and acting as a lead relationship manager between Cushman & Wakefield and its clients in the New York area. In his new role, he will report to Mark Wanic, Americas head of occupier services.
“We are very pleased to have someone of Michael’s caliber join Cushman & Wakefield, further strengthening our position as a leading occupier services provider in the New York region,” said Mr. Wanic in a prepared statement.
The announcement comes one week after Newmark Knight Frank broker Neal Golden accepted a position at Cushman & Wakefield following a series of hushed negotiations.
Good Property, the residential and commercial brokerage division of the two-year-old global firm Good Property Company, has hired Vasilios Klitsas as its latest vice president.
Mr. Klitsas, who most recently served as a broker for two years at Corcoran, and who got his start at Citi Habitats, will continue to act as a real estate broker for the new company.
“Good Property functions as a tightly knit family centered on the principals of innovation and professionalism,” said Josh Gurwitz, founder and broker of Good, which will open its flagship office in Nolita this summer. “We are confident in our choice of Vasilios and look forward to working with someone who values impeccable client service as much as we do.”
Itzhaki Properties, the 10-year-old investment sales firm based out of New York, has hired Isaac Glasman as chief executive officer, it was announced last week.
Mr. Glasman, a 15-year real estate professional who most recently served as director of retail leasing at Massey Knakal Realty Services, will now be in charge of day-to-day operations at Itzhaki Properties.
Cassidy Turley, a national commercial real estate services provider, has hired Raymond Trevisan as managing principal and William O’Keefe as a senior vice president at the firm’s New Jersey office.
Mr. Trevisan, a 23-year real estate professional who most recently served as a principal at Normandy Real Estate Partners as well as first vice president at CBRE, will now oversee day-to-day activities within Cassidy Turley’s offices in New Jersey, according to a release issued last week.
Mr. O’Keefe, who most recently held the role of senior vice president at Normandy Real Estate Partners and as a leasing broker at CBRE, will continue to work closely with Mr. Trevisan.
“We are thrilled to welcome Ray and Bill to our New Jersey office,” said Peter Hennessy, president of the firm’s New York tristate region. “Both are well respected industry professionals who have excellent reputations with tenants and brokers. Their expertise and senior leadership will undoubtedly help us grow throughout the region and better serve our new Jersey clients’ needs.”
