Just next door to the Big Apple, New Jersey’s commercial real estate sector does very well for itself, with billions of feet of office, industrial, retail and multifamily space. The brokers that handle leasing and sales in the diverse market also do a good job of holding their own—if deals closed in the state this past year are any indication. The editors of Real Estate Forum took stock of the brokers who were responsible for these transactions to determine the most active dealmakers in the market, presented here alphabetically.

METHODOLOGY: Deal information is for commissionable transactions closed in Greater New York between August 1, 2011 and July 31, 2012, and all data shown has been supplied and verified by the companies themselves. Leasing brokers were given scores based on the total number of transactions they closed, the total square footage of all transactions and their total value. The final score will be based on the average of the three fields. The investment sales brokers were scored on total number of transactions closed and total sales volume, with the final score based on the average of those two figures.
