Jordan Rubinstein & David Pressberg join Kennedy Wilson
WASHINGTON – June 29, 2016 – (RealEstateRama) — Jordan Rubinstein and David Pressberg, two influential commercial real estate professionals in Los Angeles, have joined the brokerage team at Kennedy Wilson, a global real estate investment company. Previously with Century Park Realty, the move expands Kennedy Wilson’s foothold on the tenant representation side, and lengthens the firm’s list of nationally recognized clientele and expanding brands. The team will relocate to Kennedy Wilson headquarters in Beverly Hills.
“Jordan and David bring a strong entrepreneurial spirit to our brokerage team, which is a great cultural fit. While Kennedy Wilson is institutional in nature, we are entrepreneurial in spirit. They understand both sides of our industry which will bring a great deal of intel to our clients. We expect they will be significant contributors to our firm’s growth in the coming years,” said Ed Sachse, executive managing director of brokerage at Kennedy Wilson.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, both Rubinstein and Pressberg are third generation real estate experts, with their families solidly entrenched in the Los Angeles real estate industry. This ongoing legacy has served as a foundation for a rich background on the evolution of real estate in LA.
About two and a half years ago, Rubinstein founded Century Park Realty, Inc., a Los Angeles-based boutique real estate startup focused on improving the traditional real estate brokerage model and providing a full suite of in-house services to their clients, including investment management, while prioritizing the level of service and professionalism.
As managing director under the Century Park Realty banner, Rubinstein handled business development, finance, legal and other day-to-day operations for the firm. Rubinstein is a member of the California State Bar and a licensed attorney. He was formerly an attorney for the Century City law firm of Green & Marker, handling real estate transactions and litigation on behalf of several major Los Angeles-based landlords, property management companies, and high profile commercial and residential developers.
“As a businessman and entrepreneur at heart, my decision to join Kennedy Wilson was a strategic one, in that together we are able to achieve a greater level of service and a greater dominance of the market. I believe my background and expertise aligns perfectly with the firm’s philosophy and current operations,” said Rubinstein. “I am looking forward to building this incredible team with the expertise of local professionals and enhancing Kennedy Wilson’s strong position in the market.”
Pressberg, who joins Kennedy Wilson as a retail expert, was responsible for Century Park Realty’s retail brokerage division and was instrumental in establishing the broad reach of the organization in such a short period of time. His career began in New York with The Shopping Center Group, formerly Northwest Atlantic, a go-to retail brokerage firm in the city. As an associate to a top producing retail broker, Pressberg was actively engaged in securing new locations for numerous national tenants.
“I was impressed with Kennedy Wilson’s disciplined approach to the market combined with their fierce determination to seize opportunities for their clients,” said Pressberg. “I look forward to rolling up my sleeves and bringing more retail tenants to the firm. My role will be to focus on business expansion by enhancing tenant representation and cultivating a strong client base.”
Rubinstein earned both a Bachelors of Business Administration in Business and Marketing and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida. Pressberg earned a degree in Real Estate and Business from the University of Arizona.
