Winick Realty Group CEO Jeff Winick has welcomed his daughter, Danielle Winick, as a full-time employee at the retail real estate firm.
“I grew up in real estate,” said Ms. Winick, whose mother is also in the real estate business as a residential broker at Corcoran. “My weekends were always spent looking at properties, listening in on business calls and going to meetings with my father. I explored other fields but this industry is my passion and it has been my dream to join the family business.”
Ms. Winick, who had worked at the company for the past five years on a part-time basis, officially became an Associate following her graduation from the New York University Stern Business School, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Business with a concentration in Management.
She had previously interned in the retail department at Vornado Realty Trust, giving her an opportunity to see the business not only from the developer’s side, but also from the perspective of a different firm, giving her a more well-rounded approach to her position at Winick Realty Group.
Outside of real estate, Ms. Winick has always had a passion for volunteer work. She spent seven years volunteering for Operation Smile, a non-profit organization that provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for underprivileged children around the globe. She went on missions with the organization to Vietnam and Bolivia, working alongside doctors, nurses and other volunteers. In addition, Ms. Winick founded Operation Smile’s “An Evening of Smiles,” a charity event held in the Southampton that raises money for the organization.
Bringing her strong work ethic, industry knowledge and lifelong passion to Winick Realty Group, Ms. Winick will be working alongside her father, representing prestigious properties throughout Manhattan.
“Being here on a daily basis allows me to see my projects through to completion,” said Ms. Winick. “I am excited for the opportunity to really dive in and be fully involved with our clients, as well as to be working alongside my father and learning from him every day.”
“I have been waiting for this day for a long time,” added Mr. Winick. “The next generation of Winick Realty Group is finally here.”
