CRE Online Marketplace Spikes to $20 Billion in Investment Sale Properties


Venice, Calif. – October 19, 2016 – CREXi, the online real estate marketplace, has announced its expansion to the northeast with the opening of a New York office in tandem with several key hires to continue the company’s rapid growth. To further develop CREXi’s market presence in the northeast, southeast and western U.S., the company has named three new regional directors: Christina Host, Doug Shankman and Paul Cohen.


“Hiring Christina, Doug and Paul, who bring with them incredible experience from three industry leading commercial real estate firms, will significantly increase our company’s real estate IQ and further enhance our client map,” noted Mike DeGiorgio founder and CEO of CREXi. “We strive to create the most fluid marketplace and best transaction management tools for brokers and our new team members fully understand the pain points of our clients and can help us solve them. Before joining CREXi, all three were clients which is a testament to their belief in our product and our belief in them.”


Opening the New York office, Host will focus on developing the northeastern markets. Host joins CREXi from Cushman and Wakefield where she specialized in Net Lease investment sales. Previously Host worked at Cassidy Turley representing tenants in the New York City office leasing market. 


Focusing on growing CREXi’s western U.S. presence, Shankman joins the firm after a seven-year tenure as an Associate Director with JLL where he successfully managed corporate accounts for JP Morgan, Aetna and Bank of America. Additionally, he assisted creative technology tenants with their space needs. Shankman will be based in CREXi’s Venice Beach headquarters. 


Cohen joins the CREXi team from his privately held real estate firm where he specialized in investment sales and equity raises. Previously, Cohen was a Managing Director at Cohen Financial and a Senior Vice President at CBRE. Cohen will focus on expanding southeast markets from CREXi’s Miami office, which opened in March earlier this year.
