Joseph Gehler, Gebroe-Hammer Associates
It has been a milestone year for Gebroe-Hammer Associates and one of its key contributors — Joseph Gehler, a member of the multifamily investment brokerage firm’s South Jersey/Greater Philadelphia Metro market team. Named this year’s Gebroe-Hammer Associates Salesperson of the Year, Gehler counts his ability to persuade the firm’s executive management team to hire someone with an interest — but no experience — in multifamily investment sales as one of his greatest achievements.
Named in memory of the firm’s late founders, Mel Gebroe and Morris Hammer, the annual peer-selected Salesperson of the Year award recognizes one brokerage professional for exceptional, consistent sales performance. Gehler is a first-time honoree within the firm and was named an Under-30 commercial real estate standout in 2018.
“Joseph Gehler has adeptly earned his stripes to ‘measure up’ to Gebroe-Hammer’s high standards for doing business by thinking entrepreneurially and on his feet,” said Ken Uranowitz, president, who announced the annual award at the firm’s 44th Anniversary reception recently held at Crestmont Country Club in West Orange.
