Throughout his career in real estate acquisition and development Daniel has witnessed first-hand the lack of access that most individuals have to invest in real estate. He has seen that people tend to feel "left out" when it comes to finding direct real estate investment opportunities and he is motivated to change that through Acquire Real Estate. “Time and time again my friends and family members have approached me to ask if I might be able to include a friend, family member or colleague of theirs, who is seeking exposure to real estate investments, in my next deal. It's clear to me that there's a need to create a platform that will enable individuals to invest in real estate without having to maneuver for access through friends of friends.”
In addition to Acquire Real Estate Daniel is a Principal of Katz Properties, which is a real estate investment, development and management company primarily focused on the acquisition, operation and repositioning of grocery-anchored shopping centers, with approximately 3,000,000 square feet under management. He oversees the entire execution process for all of the company's acquisitions as well as all financial activity for the company and its existing portfolio of properties.
Prior to joining Katz Properties in 2008, Daniel was Vice President of Celestial Capital Group, where he focused primarily on acquisitions of value-add office and retail properties in the New York metropolitan area and was involved in the management of Celestial's existing portfolio of office and retail properties.
Daniel started his career in the real estate industry at Roseland Property Company as an Assistant Development Manager. He was part of a team that was responsible for the oversight of all aspects of a $1.7 Billion mixed-use development.
