Abrams Brings Retail Team to Compass Commercial

Robin Abrams and her team, Abrams Retail Strategies, is joining Compass Commercial, Compass’ newly-launched commercial division. Most recently vice chairman of the retail group at Eastern Consolidated, the leasing powerhouse spent three decades developing the retail group at Lansco.

“Our first priority is always a hands-on, service-oriented approach for our clients,” said Abrams. “We were immediately drawn to Compass and their dedication to agent support and cutting-edge technology, which will allow us to continue providing our clients with thoughtful and creative results.”

In addition to Abrams, the Abrams Retail group includes brokers Lisa Rosenthal, Rebecca Olshan, Herman Glaswand, Curtis Woodside and Alexander Vellios. The team has represented brands ranging from Armani and Donna Karan, to Rebecca Taylor and 7 Jeans.

This expansion follows Compass’ entrance into commercial real estate earlier this month, and the addition of Adelaide Polsinelli and Ronda Rogovin, two of New York’s leading investment sales brokers.
