The partnership of four New York real estate principals who acquired Winoker Realty in February has re-launched the brokerage as EVO Real Estate Group.
Dana Moskowitz, the newly-named president of EVO, made the announcement. Her partners in the acquisition are Ira Fishman, who serves as CEO, and Nathan Halegua and Josh Halegua, principals
Fishman will focus on client relations and developing new business; Halegua will be involved with acquisitions; Halegua will devote his attention to management; and Moskowitz will supervise day-to-day operations and oversight of the leasing division.
“In acquiring Winoker, we knew that we’d inherited an established and respected brand, known for its reliability and advocacy for its clients for over three decades,” said Moskowitz.
“When contemplating this re-launch, we wanted to project an image that encapsulated everything that Winoker has stood for, while evoking our forward-thinking, growth-oriented intentions for the future. The name EVO seemed like a natural fit, as the new brand represents the evolution of the Winoker that clients know and trust into a new entity that will build upon that solid foundation.”
The partnership took over Winoker Realty in February, some six months following the death of founder David Winoker, who died in a skydiving accident.
Fishman had worked at Winoker Realty from 1998 to 2008, including being David Winoker’s partner for the last seven years of Fishman’s tenure there.
The company manages and leases 30 office buildings in Manhattan, focused primarily in Class B & C buildings in Midtown and Midtown South. The company has 18 agents and brokers.
EVO Real Estate Group will continue to focus on the management and leasing of commercial real estate in the Manhattan area, while working to breed new talent, nurture its commercial condo sales division, and diversify its ownership portfolio, said the company in a press release.
