Sinder of Sinvin Realty retires; Glanzberg promoted to Principal
Glanzberg to Work Alongside Current Principal Owles

NEW YORK, NY Bruce Sinder, principal and co-founder of Sinvin Realty, LLC, has retired. His departure marks the close of a distinguished, three-decade career at Sinvin.

With Sinder’s departure, Michael Glanzberg, Sinvin’s managing director and general counsel, will move up as principal alongside current principal Christopher Owles.

“In this changing of the guard, we are committed to preserving the reputation for integrity, trustworthiness and quality of service that Bruce Sinder has forged at Sinvin,” said Glanzberg. “Bruce’s thoughtful and innovative approach to matching our clients with the unique spaces that precisely meet their needs will continue to be a driving force at Sinvin.”

Sinder’s experience in brokering Downtown real estate began when he answered his first SoHo loft ad in 1974. Since then, he has built and refined a strategy for making Downtown a magnet for hip, high-end retailers and businesses like Helmut Lang, Dean & DeLuca, and Balthazar Restaurant, as well as numerous post-production, architectural, design and other creative firms. Under Sinder’s leadership, Sinvin’s market niche expanded beyond SoHo to encompass TriBeCa, Chelsea, Greenwich Village and the Meatpacking District.

Owles became a Sinvin principal in 2006.

Newly named partner Glanzberg joined Sinvin in March 2007. Since then, Owles and Glanzberg have teamed to close the $70 million sale of 414-418 West 14th St., and they have secured two important exclusives – a SoHo site for a one-of-a-kind 40,000 s/f new office and retail development, and a prized luxury retail corner being built in SoHo at 144 Spring St.
“Michael brings to Sinvin a consummate professionalism combined with an understanding of the vision, strategy and customer service that is needed to set Sinvin apart from competitors,” said current principal Owles.
