REBNY honors distinguished members.

The Real Estate Board of New York's (REBNY) Board of Governors recently honored three long-time members for their many years of dedicated service. Dan Gronich and Jerry L. Cohen were named honorary lifetime members of the Board of Governors, while Sydney A. Luria was named honorary lifetime Legal Counsel. All still active members of the board, REBNY took this opportunity to pay tribute to the three for their careers' worth of hard work.

"I am delighted that we are recognizing these three individuals for their countless contributions and commitment to our industry," said Steven Spinola, President of REBNY. "The board looks forward to continuing to benefit from the wisdom and professionalism that they have displayed in their many years in industry."

John Zuccotti, Chairman of REBNY added, "The Real Estate Board of New York is proud to bestow these titles to honor these gentlemen who have so greatly impacted our organization. Their length of service to our industry and the Board is appreciated, and this is one small way of making note of their untiring efforts."
