Contact Marc O
Marc O. Ellman, President is a 1975 graduate of the distinguished Stuyvesant High School in Manhattan. He received his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the State University of New York, while minoring in Economics and Psychology. In addition to that, he studied International Business at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark.

In New York City he has studied Real Estate at both New York University and The New School. He has also taught Real Estate courses at the Sobelsohn School.

Ten years working for a midsized New York Commercial real estate company culminated with job offers from the largest real estate companies in Manhattan.

However, with the computerization of all available NYC office listings available to him, Marc O. Ellman realized he could more fully focus and respond to the needs of the tenants he represented by forming his firm, rather than remain within the regimented corporate structure of a larger real estate company.

Based in NYC, our focus is to represent tenants and provide them with a full range of commercial real estate services.

    "When I decided to move my company in 1997 I did not have the luxury of a real estate department or in house real estate professional. So I needed a broker who would not just show us space, but one who could act as a moving consultant. Marc Ellman exceeded my expectations. He listened and understood the needs of my company and didn't waste my time on inappropriate space. He also understood and respected our guidelines for price and location and although the process took seven months to find the perfect office space, he was patient and didn't lose interest.

    Even more important, Marc served as a consultant and recommended a lawyer, contractor, architect, cleaning service and other necessities for the move. In the final stages while consulting with our attorney on the lease agreement, he even helped negotiate some extras for us.

    I have never before found a broker willing to go the extra mile (without an extra fee). Even after the move, Marc stayed in touch to make sure everything went smoothly.

    I think Marc Ellman is an exceptional N.Y.C. commercial real estate broker. I'd be happy to speak to any future clients on his behalf."

    "Without Marc O. Ellman's perseverance and guidance in this rapidly contracting office market, i-traffic would probably still be working out of a two bedroom loft in a Herald square tenement. Now pushing 40 staffers and comfortable in a stimulating and dramatic Soho loft space, there isn't a day that someone doesn't say "wow, I love this place."

    helping connect people with the sites they'd like to find...

    "When Bailey House, an AIDS Housing organization was looking for new office space in 1991, Ellman Realty Advisors came to our rescue. Sensitive to our bottom line and mission, Marc Ellman scoured the city looking for the right space for our needs in a building where people living with HIV/AIDS would be welcome. It was no easy task!

    As our agent he came face to face with the bias and fear many landlords still harbored about AIDS. Marc persevered on our behalf and found us the right fit. He is a valued friend and advocate."

    "As a real estate attorney, I deal with many brokers. If I could have my choice, I would always deal with Marc Ellman. He is knowledgeable and helpful, understands the interests of all parties involved, and works very hard for his clients. He's the broker I turn to learn about the market and help my clients, something he is willing to do, whether it means a commission for him or not"
