As the industry consolidates, Cooper-Horowitz is getting in on the current hiring frenzy by launching an investment sales platform.

The mortgage brokerage has tapped Elana Tsyganko and Max Kostikov, both previously directors of Winick Realty Group’s investment sales group, to lead its new platform, Commercial Observer reported.

“We’ve looked very carefully at launching an investment sales platform for some time and are very excited to have Elana and Max join,” said Richard Horowitz, a principal of Cooper-Horowitz. “Their experience and capabilities will help to grow the business as well as complement our existing services.”

Horowitz noted that part of the company’s motivation for launching the new platform was the fact that the industry is consolidating, and the firm wants to take advantage of the recent swell of available talent. For instance, in June, Eastern Consolidated announced it was closing down, freeing up the firm’s 100 brokers.

Tsyganko joined Winick in July 2017 after working at Nest Seekers International and MetroPolitan Property Group. Kostikov worked at Venture Capital Properties before joining Winick last year.

Other firms have expanded into commercial sales as well. Compass launched a commercial division last month. Lee & Associates NY started an investment sales division in June. [CO] — Kathryn Brenzel
