Mixed Use – Six In at Sinvin

By Patrick Hedlund | July 16, 2008

Mixed UseDowntown retail brokerage Sinvin Realty recently bolstered its staff by adding six new agents to its roster, including three new directors.

The boutique brokerage, which has sealed numerous high-profile Downtown deals, including Balthazar restaurant and Dean & DeLuca and Marc Jacobs stores, announced the new hires as part of a planned expansion after co-founder Bruce Sinder’s retirement from the company and subsequent death earlier this year.

Sinvin mined the new staff from a host of Manhattan real estate firms, including Peter C. Oberlink, former V.P./C.O.O. of Manhattan real estate investment company The Brown Companies; Olga Ousmanova, onetime Metro Spire agent; and Christopher Johnson, Eastdil Secured and CB Richard Ellis alumnus — all new members of Sinvin’s team of directors. The company’s three new associate directors represent a younger group drawn from financial, real estate and consulting backgrounds and educations.

“By adding brokers with a breadth of skill and experience, from hands-on fashion expertise to the highest end of the investment sales market, Sinvin continues to offer an even higher level of service while preserving the culture of and sensitivity to the creative industries and Downtown climate,” said Michael Glanzberg, Sinvin’s acting principal alongside Christopher Owles, in a statement.
