The March issue of The Real Deal is here! In this month’s edition, we look at the lieutenants of New York City’s real estate industry, who toil behind the scenes, running day-to-day operations and carefully shaping the direction of companies. We’ve profiled Howard Lutnick, CEO of BCG Partners, whose firm bought brokerage Newmark Knight Frank late last year, and just last month bought Grubb & Ellis. Lutnick has said he hopes to capture “25 percent of the [commercial real estate] market share,” and he also has ambitious plans to launch a market for real estate derivatives. We also caught up with Andrew Saunders, founder of the privately-owned East End brokerage named for him (who has more than $1 billion in listings) and Melanie Lazenby, the Prudential Douglas Elliman vice president who has set several real estate records with her sales and told The Real Deal she bought her apartment to give her an edge getting listings in the building.
