BOND New York Properties, one of the city’s biggest residential brokerage firms, just got a little bit bigger.
The company founded by Noah Freedman nearly 20 years ago has acquired Caliber Associates, a Midtown West based residential real estate firm.
Caliber’s two principal partners Shai Gruber and Levi Adir and 54 agents will join the 550-strong BOND roster, working from the firm’s flagship headquarters office at 810 Seventh Avenue.
“This strategic acquisition reinforces our position at the forefront of residential firms in New York City, and as we enter our 20th anniversary year, demonstrates the resilience of both our team and business model in a challenging real estate climate,” said BOND New York co-founder Noah Freedman.
Last year, BOND reconfigured its New York footprint, closing one office and consolidating agents and staff in its four remaining premises.
Gruber founded Caliber in 2005. He and Adir (who started at the firm in 2005 and became a partner in 2012) will be joining BOND New York as Managing Directors responsible for managing the day-to-day operations of their agents.
Gruber was Caliber’s Principal Broker and has over 20 years of real estate experience in both residential and commercial transactions. Adir was the Director of Operations for Caliber, and comes to BOND New York with over 15 years of real estate experience.
“We are impressed by BOND’s proprietary lead generation and conversion platforms for both rentals and sales as well as its extensive, meticulously curated NYC listings inventory,” said Gruber.
“We are excited for the opportunity to help our agents elevate their careers within the supportive, tech-forward, educational culture which BOND New York offers,” added Adir. “
