We’re pleased to present the latest in our Common Ground campaign for Gender Equality, with a salute to Ellen Israel, Executive Managing Director at JRT Realty – and a true pioneer in commercial real estate! We’re proud to shine a spotlight this year on so many trailblazers like Ellen; women who have paved the way for others to follow. Here’s to every achievement earned, every milestone passed, and every glass ceiling shattered!
Ellen is among New York’s most accomplished commercial real estate professionals, recognized for her excellence in investment sales and leasing brokerage – and especially for her ability to conceive and orchestrate complex transactions. In her 30-year career, she has worked for some of the largest institutional and entrepreneurial real estate organizations and has sat on every side of a negotiating table. Ellen has executed transactions totaling over 25 million square feet of sales and leasing on behalf of owners, investors and tenants.
