Mitchel R. Askinas
Real Estate Professional
Before joining Warburg Realty, Mitch Askinas was the president of his own financial business-consulting firm in NYC for 18 years. During this period, Mitch began purchasing, renovating, selling and managing condominiums in Manhattan. Mitch came to real estate with a diverse business background from several successful enterprises at Glen Oaks Industries, an apparel manufacturer, and MRA Enterprises Ltd., a financial business consultancy. He is skilled at negotiating, sales, creative marketing, and financial analysis.
Mitch currently lives on Upper East Side where he serves as Board Vice President and Chair of the House Committee at his condominium. This gives him a firsthand understanding of what a building Board looks for in a sale or rental Board Package. He applies this knowledge and financial background to ensure that his clients are approved by their prospective Boards. Mitch also knows the downtown area, having graduated from NYU Stern Business School, lived in the Village, and later receiving an Executive MBA degree from Pace University.
Mitch specializes in guiding first-time home buyers through the daunting maze of requirements when purchasing a home in NYC. He also extensively works with many pet owners to find and be approved for purchase in a “pet friendly” condo or co-operative.
Mitch has been a member of the New York Friar’s Club since 2013, and is also a Senior Arbitrator at the NYSE Department of Arbitration. He is a past president and a current Board member of the NYU Executive Forum, a Stern Business School affiliate club. Mitch is also a member of the Real Estate Board of New York's Residential Council and Executive Committee. He has been quoted several times by The New York Times and the New York Post.
