Real estate should always be viewed as an investment. Any real estate agent can help you spend your money, our goal as Real Estate Advisors is to ensure your investment always makes financial sense.

And because of this financial importance it is integral to your search and ultimately the negotiation that you have the right team in place to vet your real estate investments expertly whether locally, domestically or internationally.

The list of specific needs for professional athletes and entertainers is significant. Unconventional hours, frequent travel, the need for discretion and privacy, distance of commute to practice facilities, stadiums and arenas -

All of these often have to come before the typical factors of neighborhood and its “prestige” --- square footage/bedroom count, amenities in the property and social access like restaurants and nightlife options (or not because you might be highly disciplined and avoid such distractions). ALL of this must be put in a hierarchy and assigned values, and experts are needed to properly analyze this for you.

They have leveraged their prior career experiences to successfully bridge conventional real estate workflows with finance, media expertise and real estate advisory services. In doing so, they have created a holistic platform that fundamentally connects the major building blocks of complex real estate transactions: the understanding of debt requirements/ commitments (capital stack), compliance metrics, mortgage finance, artful ne- gotiation, and marketing at its best. It is their belief that this type of systemic methodology represents the future of new development real estate and effective project management.

Jeff Adler

Principal & Licensed Real Estate Salesperson Espinal Adler Team At Douglas Elliman

Prior to his career in real estate, Jeff spent 17 years in media sales for print publications including Bon Appetit, TIME International and the Wall Street Journal last before making the switch. While at Dow Jones Jeff perfected his analytic style of including and giving a value to the qualitative components of every deal, specifically real estate. This analytical approach fine-tuned while in media was easily transferred and implemented successfully to real estate.

Being an information junky isn‘t just a personality quirk for Jeff but an integral factor in the service he provides because successful sales is about adaptive, chameleon like strategic thinking. The work “marriage‘ between Marie and Jeff was made in heaven with the merger of their two distinctive skillsets delivering an exacting balance between quantitative and qualitive thinking.

Matthew Jablonski

Mortgage Finance Director

Espinal Adler Team At Douglas Elliman

Matt Jablonski spent 15 years as a loan officer, perennially amongst the top 1 % originators in the country. His ability to quickly “red flag“ issues that typically derail a mortgage application was pivotal to his success. After diagnosing a problem, Matt consistently found ways to get a tough deal done, either through a loan restructure that was acceptable to the client or through a lender exception process. Now, a licensed real estate salesperson and Mortgage Finance Director with the Espinal Adler Team, Matt can help identify preferred loan officers who can be counted on to do the same for purchasers buying in your project. He‘ll tell you who has the ability to think creatively enough to restructure a deal that might be falling apart; Which loan officer‘s will get answers from underwriting in advance of going into contract with a buyer whose income, asset, or credit profile comes with questions; And he‘ll tell you which loan officers will consistently put together a quality application, a major factor in process efficiency and ultimately the project‘s sales velocity.

Having originated more than 2,000 loans in his career, Matt can independently vet each preapproval that a potential buyer provides, preventing a sponsor from going into contract with an unqualified buyer; another event that would undoubtedly slow the velocity of sales. Prior to his real estate and mortgage career, Matt was a journalist, spending time as a sports reporter at Newsday and on Capitol Hill where he covered the space and satellite industry for Communications Daily. Matt is also a veteran of the U.S. Air Force.
