I earned undergraduate degrees in Economics and Philosophy, received a DAAD certification in German, and a post-baccalaureate degree in Modern Philosophy, and an MBA with a full-spectrum concentration in accounting (all present day CPA requirements).
In 2007 I co-founded a small, independent financial advisory & consulting firm, initially focused on green energy finance, and which has since then evolved in size and focus to become The Benchimol Group, a firm specializing in the rentals and sales of retail, office and industrial space. I have been a licensed real estate broker for ten years, and this has exposed me to thousands of spaces in various market conditions. My diverse background both in economics and finance as well as being a native New Yorker give me a grounded understanding and acute insight as to the dynamics of New York City's fast paced market. My history in finance has always been a great bonus to my clients, since I am quite happy to help with strategic financial planning and research in order to create the best opportunities possible for those who work with me.
I was born and raised in Brooklyn, and I live in Greenpoint, together with my two cats and my lab-retriever, Yogi Bear. I also own a concierge tech support company in NYC. During my time off, I like to read and learn foreign languages (French, Turkish, Spanish, German). I love to travel and play competitive Scrabble, and am a football (soccer) fan. I also enjoy walking, hiking and snowboarding anywhere from the Rockies to the Alps.
