Eli kick-started his career as an NYC real estate agent back in 2002, and by 2004, he founded his own brokerage in Homestead, NYC where he focused on residential leasing and condominium sales. Within 5 years, his company grew to 3 locations staffed by over 100 agents and achieved an impressive brokering record of over $250 million in transactions. Expanding on his success, Eli moved to Upstate NY in 2010 to co-found ME Real Estate with his brother, Moshe. By 2011, ME had opened their first in-house management company, which grew exponentially to include over 1,300 units across Ohio, New York, and Indiana. Alongside his current role at ME Real Estate overseeing new developments, new acquisitions, big-picture operations, and the company’s portfolio and financing, Eli remains a licensed real estate broker in New York and Ohio.
Moshe began his career far from real estate, showcasing his talents as the CEO for AC Engineering in the industries of medical devices, NPWT, and airplane pumps. To this day, Moshe holds a position on the board, where he supplies industry leaders in the medical and aviation world with innovative technology solutions, both locally and globally. In 2005, Moshe began investing in NYC real estate with his brother Eli, focusing on the purchase of condominium units. This business venture led to the creation of ME Real Estate in 2010, directly following the subprime mortgage crisis of 2008. Since its development, Moshe has been instrumental in the expansion of ME Real Estate into several cities, including Rochester, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus, and Indianapolis. Here at ME Real Estate, Moshe takes the lead of business development, overseeing the investment, underwriting, and securing of investments, all the while focusing on the long-term goals and strategies to ensure the continued growth of the company.
CEO / Managing Director
James is an Upstate NY native who started his real estate career remodeling homes in Rochester. This proximity led him along the path to meeting Eli and Moshe in 2014, where he began his journey at ME Real Estate managing renovation projects. It quickly became apparent that James had the management skills and operational knowledge necessary to grow the company to new levels, and as ME Real Estate’s footprint expanded to new depths, so did James’ skillsets. His adaptability to oversee multiple levels of operations has allowed the company to branch out to multiple different markets, encompassing a wide range of assets. In 2019 James became CEO of ME Real Estate, and he currently oversees over 1,300 units, ranging from student housing to luxury multi-family units to retail shopping centers. James is an asset to ME Real Estate, overseeing the day-to-day operations of each branch office, managing the development of large-scale projects, and creating strategies to continue the growth of the ME Real Estate Firm.

Additionally, Eitan is a licensed real estate agent and is fluent in Spanish and Hebrew, which has proved instrumental in communicating with clients of different cultures.
