As a born and bred New Yorker with a true passion for the city, it’s no wonder that Gabe Leibowitz took an immediate shine to the real estate industry. Armed with a deep love for the cultural fabric that binds the city together—and a passion for helping those who share that love find their dream home— Gabe quickly went from salesperson to owning his own firm in 2005. Aboveground Realty LLC, (he later renamed it “Skygroup Realty” in 2010) was created to fill the niche for those craving personal service with a deep personal touch. After a meeting of the minds with Warburg’s CEO Frederick Peters, he chose to merge his company into Warburg in June of 2015.
Throughout his career, Gabe has worked on sales transactions ranging from $200,000 to $13,000,000, and handled massive rental portfolios throughout NYC (he currently runs rental accounts that total over 300 units between Manhattan and Brooklyn). He lives by an unbreakable mantra of ethics, responsibility, professionalism, patience, and hard work for his customers. Gabe prides himself on treating each client equally, regardless of budget, and has loved providing best-in-class materials and service via an extensive team of marketers and associates. Providing this bespoke service to each client is something he holds dear, and is core to the ethos of Warburg. After more than twelve years in the industry, Gabe has a strong internal network of professionals such as real estate lawyers, mortgage bankers, home inspectors, architects, and contractors to help make his clients' transactions as smooth as possible.
Born in Manhattan in 1979, Gabe has only taken a break from the magnificence NYC has to offer to attend Brandeis University in Waltham, MA, near Boston, for college. He holds his MBA from NYU Stern and lives with his wife Francesca, his son Julian, and his toy poodle Kiki in Brooklyn. In his spare time, he loves cinema—he was a film critic for years before discovering real estate—sports; fine dining; and anything involving his family and friends. In his first full year at Warburg (2016), he closed the most total transactions in the company and was the Tribeca office’s top-producing broker. He prides himself on being a one-stop shop for all your real estate needs in Manhattan and Brooklyn—to learn more, visit his website at www.gabeleibowitz.com
