    Ariel Property Advisors has come far in two years, growing from a staff of 10 to 40 and handling $250 million in business last year.

Below 96th Street, competition is stiff among Ariel’s adversaries, which include Cushman & Wakefield, Eastern Consolidated, CBRE and Massey Knakal, where Shkury served as a senior broker before branching out on his own.
