He also talked about the current state of the market and provided his outlook for each borough.

Michael Stoler, Managing Director at Madison Realty Capital and Executive Producer of “The Stoler Report-New York’s Business Report,” moderated the spirited and often humorous discussion, with questions focused on multifamily properties, affordability, millennial housing trends, and the overall state of the investment sales market.

Panelist Ofer Yardeni, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Stonehenge NYC, shed light on the neighborhoods and properties he currently favors and those he is avoiding. He also relayed his thoughts on the current state of the retail sector as well as the impact of the newly opened 2nd Avenue subway line on Upper East Side real estate.

All ticket proceeds from the event were directly donated to the nonprofit Legal Outreach. At the event, James O’Neal, Executive Director of Legal Outreach, shared the goals and objectives of his organization, which helps young people from underserved New York City communities gain admission to the country’s most competitive colleges and universities.
