MHP Real Estate Services’ Gil Robinov died on Sunday after a long battle with lung cancer. He was 87.

Robinov, who most recently served as an executive managing director at MHP, worked as a broker for 55 years, leasing more than 25 million square feet for Fortune 500 companies and major institutions, the New York Post reported.

He worked at the Sylvan Lawrence Company, CB Richard Ellis, NAI Global’s International Advisory Group, GVA Williams and Riverbank Realty. Robinov represented more than 100 office buildings in Manhattan as the exclusive agent. He also worked extensively with the United Nations to find offices and consulates for its members.

Over the course of his career, he was nominated five times for the Real Estate Board of New York’s Ingenious Deal of the Year Award. Later in life, he served on the executive board of the Northeast Greenwich Association and was active in many Jewish organizations, temple boards and local civic groups in Harrison, New York.

He is survived by his wife Felice, children Susan and David, and four grandchildren, Rachel, Greg, Bonnie and Ben. His son David is the investment sales director at Ackman-Ziff Real Estate Group.

MHP’s head Norman Sturner recently sold a stake in the company to Miami-based Banyan Street Capital and downsized the firm.
