Brooklyn Special Assets Team

TerraCRG is solely dedicated to Brooklyn transactions covering investment sales and commercial leasing across every asset type. Our Special Asset and Loan Sale Advisory Team is leveraging our Brooklyn market expertise, in-depth knowledge, and 16 years of transactions throughout Brooklyn.

The Special Asset and Loan Sale Advisory Team has vast experience in providing strategic positioning and advisory services to lenders, specialty lenders, banks and private equity funds as they navigate the implications of a recessionary stage in the market cycle.

The team is led by Ofer Cohen, who founded TerraCRG in 2008 and worked through many special situation transactions in the 2008-2011 great recession period. Cohen’s first-hand market experience in Brooklyn includes loan sales, foreclosures, bank workouts, debt restructuring and loan and value-add advisory for REO and bank-owned assets.

Over the past 16 years, our leading market experts have completed some of the largest and most comprehensive portfolio, development, and repositioning transactions throughout Brooklyn. Additionally, our commercial leasing team is a differentiating component in our ability to service lenders, as their expertise in retail, industrial and office assets in Brooklyn can be tapped to evaluate, analyze, and inform repositioning strategy at any stage.

Only Brooklyn® loan advisory services include complimentary individual and portfolio loan valuations, collateral valuations; and and strategic restructuring and sale of special assets from holders of commercial real estate debt.
