Eastern Consolidated Founders Peter Hauspurg, Daun Paris Reveal Their Next Move
Four months after they announced the closure of their brokerage, Eastern Consolidated founders Peter Hauspurg and Daun Paris have landed at ABS Partners Real Estate.
The pair will be joined at ABS by former Eastern Chief Financial Officer Peter Takiff, ABS Partners announced Wednesday.
Hauspurg will be a co-managing partner, while Paris and Takiff will be senior members of the firm. They will focus on building the firm's acquisition pipeline and expanding new partnerships.
“This new chapter in the esteemed careers of Peter, Daun and Peter holds tremendous promise for the growth and success of the ABS Partners investment platform and our ability to source equity investments that meet the appetites and investment goals of our many long-time partners,” ABS Partners President and co-Managing Partner Gregg Schenker said in a statement. “We also hope to be a resource for their relationships, creating opportunity for new equity partners who value our vertically integrated platform for value creation.”
Eastern Consolidated closed in July after 37 years in business. Real estate industry members said it showed how hard it is for small or midsize brokerages to stay afloat in the city in the current investment sales climate. Since it closed, Eastern's former high-level brokers Adelaide Polsinelli and Robin Abrams have joined Compass.
Adam Hakim and James Murad, former managing directors at Eastern, joined Meridian Capital Group. James Famularo joined Meridian to run retail leasing there, while Brian Ezratty and Ron Solarz signed with Newmark Knight Frank.
