Kobi Lahav

Sr. Managing Director

Who is Kobi Lahav?

Kobi Lahav is the Senior Managing Director and Associate Broker at Mdrn. Residential, specializing in sales, investments & rentals in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens.

However, the man is so much more than the title.

Born in Israel, Kobi has a long history of success and leadership in his career, starting with his stint in the Israeli Defense Forces, where he acquired his dedication, resilience, and his steadfast ability to work well under pressure. All of these qualities helped develop him into the determined, spirited businessman and broker he is today. Following his required military service, Kobi found great success in the hospitality industry, serving as the Concierge for one of the largest hotel chains in Israel, in the resort city of Eilat. His time there taught him the most important lessons of Real Estate: Good Customer Service comes above all else!

Looking for an even greater challenge, Kobi went off to study law at Israel’s most prestigious university, where he strengthened his focal and analytical skills. His hard work paid off, landing him a coveted position working with Meitar Liquornick Geva & Leshem Tal, one of the largest and most esteemed law firms in Tel Aviv. There, Kobi specialized in Mergers and Acquisitions, IPO’s, investment rounds, tech companies, large-scale commercial litigation, and aided in deals ranging from 30 million, up to 1 billion dollars. In dealing with such high-profile cases, Kobi absorbed the charisma, acumen, and sensitivity necessary for working with elite clients. Furthermore, the negotiation skills he gained as a lawyer have always served him very well in closing a deal!

Upon moving to the US in 2007, Kobi embarked on his highly successful career in real estate. Kobi fell in love with New York City’s unique energy, and began working for boutique firms, where he was quickly promoted to VP, due to his status as a top producer and his adept skills of negotiation and high-level customer service. The business expertise and foreign success he had gained within the fields of hospitality and corporate law were a perfect fit for the fast-paced intensity of the New York City Real Estate Market, and Kobi has always been ahead of the game. Always pushing himself to grow, Kobi continued to evolve professionally and personally by graduating from the Executive MBA Program at NYU Stern School of Business, specializing in Finance, Banking, and Management. His high levels of education have served him and his clients at every turn, understanding the ins and outs of working with exclusive clients and businesses. For Kobi, his client’s needs are always at the top of his list, and he will develop his abilities and skills in any way necessary to meet your needs! In 2015, Kobi began working as the Senior Managing Director of Mdrn. Residential and has never been happier.

While Kobi is an incredibly busy man, he makes sure to find time to develop himself personally, and spend time with his beautiful wife, Shira, a successful psychotherapist and entrepreneur whom he met when she came into his office, and his two young children. In his spare time, Kobi can either be found with his nose in a book (with a love for reading up on finance, business, and politics), playing with his beautiful children, or frequenting the many restaurants of this vibrant city with his wife (their favorite being Moroccan-fusion Mogador in the East Village.) Additionally, Kobi recognizes the importance of philanthropy and community, and is an active member of the Real Estate Board of NY (REBNY), AIPAC, the Israel State Bar Association, and is an active donor to the ASPCA (and the dog-owner of an adorable Shih-Tzu)!

If you’re looking for a broker who will never stop working to meet all of your needs through every step of the process, don’t hesitate to call Kobi Lahav at (917) 858-1915, or email at KL@mdrnresidential.com.
You can put your trust in Kobi to use all of his expertise, education, and highly developed skills to help you close the deal of your dreams!

Cammy Cutler

Managing Director

Unofficially dubbed as the "go-to resource for management firms", Cammy Cutler's 13 years of experience in the Real Estate industry has resulted in an unmatched level of expertise. As current Managing Director at Mdrn. Residential, she uses her signature agent-driven approach to play a vital role in making sure the Mdrn. team is consistently growing. Cammy will provide support to new and established agents, streamline deals, plus develop and maintain business relationships within New York City's vast community of property managers and landlords.

Cammy hails from Canarsie, Brooklyn and holds a B.A. in Business Management from Suny Albany. She started her professional career in Finance Management. Her family was involved in the construction and contracting industry, which exposed her to Real Estate. It wasn't long before she made the switch to become an agent. Using her background in management, she fused her past management experience with her new sales role. After four years at a prominent firm, she took on the role of manager.

Cammy's transition to management proved successful. Overall business, including GCI, company profit, and sales team size grew over 30% year over year. One of the agents under her leadership went on be REBNY's "Rookie of the Year", an achievement Cammy recalls as one of her proudest moments. She eventually went on to be Sr. Managing Director at another reputable firm.

Cammy's approach to leadership is one where her focus is individual attention to each agent. She is exceptionally adept at identifying what she dubs the "limiting skills" of each salesperson and works closely to make sure they are addressed. She notes that marketing is a common roadblock for many agents and she tends to mentor each of her agents in that aspect.

Now settled in Staten Island, Cammy spends her days with her rather large family of 2 daughters, 2 cats and 2 dogs. In her spare time she often volunteers at different non-profits such as Operation Backpack, City Harvest, and various breast cancer walks. Cammy is also an avid reader with an impressive library.
