Welcome to Menkin Realty Services Inc.



In the words of Founder and President Victor M. Menkin, "It's about integrity, respect and your commitment to an exceptional level of service." This is the foundation upon which Menkin Realty Services has been built. The company has established itself as a trusted advisor to commercial landlords, tenants and investors.  

For 11 years Mr. Menkin served as Vice President Retail for Olympia and York Properties which was at the time, the largest privately owned real estate development company in the world and the largest owners of commercial property in Manhattan. Mr. Menkin was responsible for the leasing and management of  approximately 600,000 square feet of retail space in NYC which included World Financial Center, now named Brookfield Place.

Menkin Realty Services' commitment to excellence is carried out by a depth and breadth of experience seldom matched in New York retail real estate. During Mr. Menkin's real estate career which spans over 45 years, he has negotiated over $1 billion worth of retail lease obligations. This depth of experience affords him the ability to generate dynamic retail real estate strategies that allow retailers to expand and flourish and landlords to maximize property values.  

The firm's ability to execute customized solutions is made possible through long standing relationships with New York City real estate's most active players. Mr. Menkin has represented tenants such as the Bank of New York, Estee Lauder, The Gap, Godiva, Au Bon Pain, Ark Restaurant Corporation, Starbucks, Duane Reade, Restaurant Associates and many others. He has represented landlords such as Brookfield Properties, Rudin Management, Gladstone Properties, Morgan Stanley, Boston Properties, RREEF and Tishman Speyer amongst many others.

The owner of this very hot corner retail property on Broadway  was in need of a replacement for a tenant in possession which had defaulted under its lease.
