As a former New Yorker, I can tell you that the real estate market there has its own ecosystem. If you can figure out how to do real estate there, chances are you can figure it out anywhere on the planet. James Prendamano and his team have closed well over 1,500 deals, leased more than a million square feet of commercial space, and facilitated over a billion dollars of real estate transactions. He also shepherded the completion of a number of transformative projects that have reshaped New York City’s commercial real estate landscape. Through discipline and cultivating a lifelong learning mindset, James has the expertise that allows him to run a very large real estate empire.

Whether it’s residential, mixed-use, office space, defaulted notes, or lease options, James and his team have done it all. James is the CEO of Prendamano Real Estate (PreReal) and is the host of the PreReal podcast. Here, James shares stories from his real estate journey that began when he was just a young boy.
