IVINGSTON, NJ — Gebroe-Hammer As- sociates , one of the leading multi-family invest- ment sales brokerage firms in the Garden State and the entire New Jersey/Pennsylvania/New York region, has promoted three of its top-producing bro- kers and one administrative professional to new executive management positions, an- nounced Ken Uranowitz , president. Debbie Pomer- antz of Passaic was named senior vice president and Ge- hane Triarsi of Mountainside, Adam Zweibel of Livingston and Kathleen DeMarino of L

sylvania and New York State as well as nationally. The firm also markets mixed-use and free-standing office and retail properties. Pomerantz joined Gebroe- Hammer as a sales associate in 2011 to focus on Northern New Jersey's Bergen and Pas- saic submarkets. During her tenure, she has closed 48 deals netting over $200 million in these high-barrier-to-entry hubs as well as throughout New Jersey. She is a two-time recipient of Gebroe-Hammer’s peer-selected Salesperson of the Year Award, a NJ Top Broker, “Woman of Influence” in real estate and a two-time Executive Women in Real Estate honoree. Pomerantz was promoted to assistant vice president in 2013 and vice president in 2014. Triarsi also joined Gebroe- Hammer in 2011 to focus on the Union County submarket. After launching her professional ca- reer as a television producer for a major New York network, her interests shifted to commercial real estate investment sales and the art of structuring deals. Since entering Gebroe-Ham- mer’s industry-unique mentor- ing program, she has closed over 25 deals totaling more than 2,000 units. Additionally, she has been recognized as a two-time Executive Woman in Real Estate honoree and a Gebroe-Hammer Salesperson of the Year. Zweibel was hired as a Ge- broe-Hammer sales associate in 2013 and is among the region’s leading Central and South Jersey market specialists. In 2016, he closed 14 deals total- ing 1,629 units and $192+ mil- lion, topping off 2015’s 13 deals encompassing 1,340 units sold for $147.27 million. Similar to Triarsi, his affiliation with Gebroe-Hammer marked a career change thanks to the firm’s mentoring program. Pre- viously, he served as president of Alpha Technology Group, a company he successfully built, restructured and eventually sold to Strategic Micro Sys- tems. “A broker, however, can only be as good as a firm’s adminis- trative team, of which Kathy DeMarino has been an invalu- able member for 15 years,” said Uranowitz.
