    The founder of boutique real estate firm Prince Realty Advisors, David Ash, nearly quit the business. A year after founding the firm in 2010, he was nearly bereft of start-up cash, and deal after deal was falling through, deals that could have been worth millions if they had come to fruition. Finally, he nabbed a $30 million sale, and more deals started flowing.

    Ash graduated with a business degree from New York University and then began his career leasing office space for the Kaufman Organization, where he was the top annual producer three of his four years there. He then spent a year at real estate investment firm Eastern Consolidated, where he developed a taste for the sales side of real estate.

    In 2010 he formed Prince with the knowledge that he'd have to go head to head against his former employers. But he tried a different approach, positioning himself as a matchmaker in more personal deals between buyers and sellers. The approach has worked, with Ash helping to broker deals at The Beatrice mixed-use tower and the $300 million record sale of a building that housed clothing retailer Zara.
