Knakal ranked among city's top investment sales brokers.

Massey Knakal Realty Services announced that its chairman, Robert Knakal, has been named one of Costar's Top Ten Investment Sales Brokers in New York City for a third consecutive year.

Knakal, a graduate of the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, was bestowed the honor based on the aggregate consideration of his sales last year. In 2005, he closed more than $600,000,000 in investment property sales.

"I am much more interested in and concerned about how Massey Knakal does overall. However, it is nice to get this recognition," Knakal said.

In 1984, Knakal was hired by Coldwell Banker Commercial, now CB Richard Ellis. Four years later, he collaborated with his co-worker, Paul J. Massey Jr., to establish a property sales company in Manhattan--Massey Knakal Realty Services.

In 2005, the entire company closed on the sale of 579 properties with an aggregate market value of $1,750,000,000.

Knakal has been the recipient of many awards, including Crain'sForty Under Forty/New York Rising Star; Top Dealmaker by Real Estate New York magazine; Robert T. Lawrence Award for the Real Estate Board of New York's Most Ingenious Deal of the Year contest two separate years; a Top Dealmaker by Real Estate Weekly in its 50th anniversary issue.
