Handler Real Estate Makes Key Personnel Moves 

Handler Real Estate Organization, the group encompassing four distinct but interconnected real estate companies, has made several personnel moves to enhance its operations. 

Darell Handler has been promoted to COO of Handler Real Estate Organization, and industry veteran Richard Farley has rejoined Handler Real Estate Services as SVP and associate broker. Further bolstering the organization’s boutique brokerage business, Alex Bush has been promoted to senior director, and Kyle Galin has been promoted to director.  

Handler, who has been with the organization since 2011 and was promoted to EVP in 2017, co-leads the organization’s agency leasing efforts, servicing the portfolio of owned office and retail properties. He’ll lead Handler Real Estate Services, arranging third-party leases on behalf of tenants and other landlords throughout New York City.   

Furthermore, Handler will take a larger role with ESSH Investments, the group’s investment vehicle, supporting CEO Scott Galin in identifying, analyzing and executing new investments.
