Longtime retail broker Robert Frischman has died of brain cancer at age 53 after battling the disease for roughly 18 months.

Frischman was the founder of JDF Realty, which merged with Evo Real Estate Group in 2013 and then with Herald Square Properties in 2017, becoming HSP Real Estate Group, according to the Commercial Observer. Frischman was an executive vice president and director of retail brokerage at HSP, and although he went into work as often as he could after his cancer diagnosis, he had not been able to come in very much since last summer.

His work included a 2015 deal that brought UFC Gym to 277 Canal Street and a 2016 deal that brought the Gem Saloon to 375-377 Third Avenue, and he was an associate broker with Chodosh Realty Services before starting JDF Realty. [CO]Eddie Small
