Testimonials

“I have been working with Howard Properties for more than a decade.  They were referred to me by my predecessor, who had also been working with the firm for many years.  Fidelity National Financial is a NYSE traded company with more than $8.2 billion in annual revenue.  We lease multiple office locations in Westchester.  I have called on Howard Greenberg many times over the years to relocate offices and to negotiate lease renewals.  He has always done a great job for us.  He knows the market, understands what we need, negotiates in our best interest, and is efficient and professional. He adds value in every transaction.”

Bo Hoban, Director of Real Estate, Eastern Division

“Howard Greenberg originally represented our company in the sublease of our space in 2004. We secured a full floor, with an upgraded installation, at a very attractive price from the previous tenant. Our sublease term was to expire in late 2011, and we wanted to stay in the space as a direct tenant. Howard strategized and conducted our negotiations with the building ownership so that we were able to smoothly and economically transition into a direct tenancy. This saved us significant dollars and time, as we did not have to relocate our entire operation from a space that clearly had worked for our business for the last seven years.”

Brad Markowitz, President, Park Avenue Health Care Management

“We formed our firm in 1996 and Howard Greenberg was involved as our real estate advisor from the very first day. Since our first sublease space of 6,000 SF, we have grown to four offices in four states and more than 28,000 SF. Howard has always counseled us well. He has an excellent understanding of law firms and their specialized needs. His professionalism and his excellent relationships with building owners have enabled our firm to intelligently manage its growth and its real estate budget.”

“Howard Greenberg found us the perfect building for our first data center. He did the research to prove to us that this former IBM facility had been built with much of the infrastructure that we needed for our new operation. It meant that Cervalis would save millions of dollars in construction costs. We leased 71,500 SF for our company, and have since expanded this center to 100,000 SF. We have relied on Howard for every real estate transaction Cervalis has done since we began the business, including our 55,000 SF Stamford facility and our newest 148,161 SF data center in New Jersey. These are all high value, complex transactions, and we have always had the confidence in him to research, strategize and execute our real estate plan.”

“I own a business that provides IT support for medical providers. As my clients began to be acquired by large hospital systems, my firm needed to expand quickly to keep up with client demands. We needed to double our space, and also needed to stay in our immediate area. Howard Greenberg was recommended to us and immediately began to search the market for appropriate space. Due to his long relationship with our landlord, he learned of a space that was about to come to market in our existing building, and we were able to secure the space before anyone else ever saw it. It was a smooth transaction, and we got everything we needed, at a very attractive price. It would not have happened without Howard.”

Jeremie Scheiner, Chief Executive Officer EZMSP

“Howard Greenberg has represented our firm in seventeen lease transactions, for over 170,000 SF. Howard is more than a broker. He is a business consultant. In addition to negotiating very favorable economic transactions for our firm,(in both Landlord’s and Tenant’s markets), Howard has taken great pains to make certain that we have had our space delivered on time and on budget, in order to keep pace with our rapid growth. He is extremely knowledgeable, detail-oriented and responsive, and is always there when we need him to guide us through every aspect of each transaction.”

Wayne Borgeest, Esq., Managing Partner, Kaufman Borgeest & Ryan LLP

“Howard Greenberg has provided excellent service to my firm and to companies I have been involved with for more than 11 years. Our business relationship began when he moved my law firm from New York City to Westchester. Then he helped a medical device company I am involved with renew a 49,000 square foot full building lease in New Jersey. He succeeded in getting the Landlord to make much-needed repairs and secured hundreds of thousands of dollars for the tenant to refurbish its space. He also negotiated a reduced rent, and secured a number of additional benefits for the tenant.

This company also needed real estate expertise in Holland, and Howard provided that as well. The company is in the process of finalizing a transaction that will significantly lower its occupancy cost while moving to a higher quality building. I trust Howard implicitly; he is a person of true integrity. He grasps the issues and prioritizes the process. He saves his clients money and respects their time by doing all of the groundwork, research, and analysis. He engages the clients when decisions have to be made, while providing the unbiased information they need to make them. I highly recommend Howard Properties, Ltd.”

Howard Properties did an excellent job representing us in this transaction. Howard Greenberg took the time to clearly understand our requirements, and presented comprehensive information on all viable alternatives to us. When we focused on a short list of buildings, he used his negotiating expertise to creatively fashion a lease transaction that provided room for growth without adding additional rent expense. Howard helped us to significantly upgrade our headquarters facility in a very cost-effective manner and provided great service every step of the way
