GFI Realty Services, one of New York City’s top commercial real estate brokerage firms, announces that industry veteran Shane Barbanel, has joined the company’s rapidly expanding team. Throughout his career, Shane has completed over $75 million in commercial sales transactions and managed approximately 2,000 residential units in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens.
