Newmark Knight Frank brokers David Noonan and Jennifer Schwartzman took home the top prize last night at the Real Estate Board of New York’s Most Ingenious Deal of the Year Awards. The ceremony honored the most creative commercial deals made in the last year, as judged by a panel that includes brokers and property owners, according to REBNY President Steven Spinola.

Taking home second place were Robert Eisenberg, Barry Gosin and Mark Weiss, also from Newmark, while CB Richard Ellis’ Darcy Stacom and William Shanahan nabbed third place.

The event brought out some of the commercial world’s biggest names, including CBRE’s Mary Ann Tighe and Stephen Siegel, Eastern Consolidated’s Daun Paris and Peter Hauspurg and Massey Knakal Realty Services’ Robert Knakal, who presented the awards.

The mood this year was up from 2010, according to Spinola, who said that he sees stability in the market. Although he admitted that recent New York City housing reports, which show stability but also dropping prices, has an effect on the commercial world, he said the crowd wasn’t deterred by the data.

“I think people will look past a report of one quarter or one month,” Spinola said. “Nobody is calling me saying this is a disaster.”
