Paul Massey’s getting the band back together. His new commercial brokerage, B6 Real Estate Advisors, is bringing on David Chase as a new partner and executive managing director of investment sales.

Chase, formerly of Massey Knakal Realty Services and Cushman & Wakefield, is leaving One Commercial Realty Services, a brokerage he founded after leaving Cushman in November 2016, Commercial Observer reported.

“When Paul called me and we got together, there was not much convincing for me,” Chase said. “He’s my mentor and my friend, and I feel like we can do bigger and better things [together]. What it would have taken me 10 years to achieve [at One Commercial], he’s already done in the first few months [at B6]. Our goal is to become number one [in the New York investment sales market] in less than two years.”

Chase will start at the firm after Labor Day, overseeing an area of Uptown Manhattan that includes Manhattanville, West and East Harlem, Hamilton Heights and Sugar Hill. He will work alongside other Cushman and Massey Knakal veterans, including DJ Johnston, Neil Heilberg and Michael Wlody.

Chase said he wouldn’t have left his own brokerage for “anybody other than Paul.” [CO] — Kathryn Brenzel
