Roger founded NIA National Realty in 1986 after spending two years with the Charles Klatskin Company, which primarily focused on the industrial segment of commercial real estate. He opened offices directly on Route 17, just north of Route 4, at one of the country's busiest intersections, expanding his focus to include retail, office and investments, on top of the industrial foundation.
During NIA National Realty's formative years, an interesting proposition became abundantly clear. A "cross-trained" brokerage expert would serve best in this highly unique market, especially given the concentration of national retailers, who also maintain offices, and even a storage component, all in the same market.
Roger is a graduate of Rutgers University with a BA in Political Science and Art History. Early in his career, Roger maintained an affiliation with the Industrial and Office Association of Real Estate brokers, and later completed graduate work at NYU's Real Estate Program. Additionally, Roger earned his CCIM designation in 1994, and has continuously maintained his Certified Commercial Investment Membership since.
Roger, his wife Nancy and their four boys reside in Woodcliff Lake, NJ. They all enjoy skiing and snowboarding together amongst a number of other activities.
