Crain’s inaugural Rising Stars in real estate are being recognized for their knowledge, skills, integrity, accomplishments and contributions to their profession and to the community.
This list is made up of professionals in residential and commercial real estate or ancillary fields. They have a maximum of 10 consecutive or cumulative years of experience in real estate, and they are making their mark on the city market. Some of the honorees are early in their careers, while others have started or returned to real estate after establishing themselves in another industry.
The honorees were discovered through Crain’s research and nominations by their firms. They were selected by Crain’s editors.
Here is the write up on Josh's recognition as a rising star in real estate:
"Part of a real estate family active in the New York City market for more than 40 years, 25-year-old Josh Agus manages a team and oversees a portfolio of more than 60 properties in the New York City and Florida areas. Agus is known for maximizing rezoning and development opportunities and his ability to navigate multiple city and state agencies. Among his notable transactions in the last year is the purchase of a retail condo on 96th Street and Amsterdam Avenue for $19 million. Aside from real estate, he volunteers as a counselor at Camp Gesher, a program that sends orphans to summer camp."
