Born in Berkeley California, Moshe’s family moved to Jerusalem Israel shortly thereafter, where Moshe would be raised.  In 2004, Moshe began working with this father, a brilliant mechanical engineer in the medical device industry, where he was head of marketing for AC Engineering.  Moshe still holds a spot on the board, where he supplies industry leaders in the medical and aviation world with technology solutions, both locally and globally. In 2005, Moshe started investing in NYC real estate with his brother Eli,  focusing on buying condominiums, which led to the creation of ME Real Estate in 2010.  Since then, ME Real Estate has expanded its footprint to several cities, including Rochester, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus, and Indianapolis.  The ME Real Estate umbrella encompases over 1,300 residential and commercial properties, all being overseen by in-house management companies.
