What I am most proud of was my ability to ‘sell’ my skill set and enthu- siasm for learning the multi- family investment brokerage profession and convince the best in this business to hire me as a sales trainee,” said Gehler. “From day one of my brokerage career, I have had the unique chance to be in the trenches – not sitting at a desk in some office gathering mar- ket information – with some of the nation’s top-ranked multi-family brokerage profes- sionals. I wanted this chance to learn from the industry’s top leaders and now – at lightning speed – I’m brokering my own deals while cultivating my own client base.”  Michael Berman , president &CEO of M&T Realty Capital Corporation. “His production management experience will be invaluable to both our cus- tomers and our sales team as our company grows.” Heller holds a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and a Juris Doctor (J.D.) from the University of Florida, as well as a Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Taxation from New York University.
