Longtime Eastern Consolidated brokers Eric Anton and Ronald Solarz left the investment sales firm last month to take positions as managing partners at investment banking firm Brookfield Financial. Anton said the pair would be running property brokerage nationally for the firm, from its office in Manhattan.

“The initial focus is going to be New York City,” Anton said. “And then as we grow, we are going to add staff, and we are going to reach across the country.”

Toronto-based Brookfield opened the New York office in 2009 with a focus on investment banking. With Anton and Solarz, they will now add investment sales to the mix in the United States. They hope to eventually open offices in Washington, D.C., and Boston, and “perhaps Chicago,” Anton said.

Anton had been with Eastern Consolidated since 1998, and Solarz since 1994.

The two, who have long worked as partners, will represent buyers and sellers at Brookfield, “both exclusively and on quiet, off-market deals” valued at $20 million and up, Solarz said.

Brookfield Financial, a real estate investment banking and brokerage firm, is a division of the Toronto-based office and residential giant Brookfield Asset Management.
