OUR TEAM

 Michael Gilbert-  Broker

Michael is the Founder and Broker of Gilco Realty. He founded the company in 2011 to focus on Commercial and Industrial Properties in the New York City Area and focusing primarily on the Bronx which he felt was an under served market. Since its founding Michael has completed many sales and leases per year and has built a reputation of working with buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants to try to make all deals the best possible for both sides. Some companies Michael has completed transactions with include: Family Dollar, Dollar Tree, Nestle Foods, The City of New York, Transit Workers Union, Medical Offices, and many more tenants and buyers. In the coming years Michael plans to expand the company by bringing in additional salespeople to help grow the company to its full potential.

Michele Lawson- Agent

Michele Joined Gilco in August 2016 as her first step into the Commercial and Industrial Real Estate Brokerage world. Prior to working at Gilco she was a residential broker in Yonkers but felt that her talents and skills were not being used to their full potential in dealing with houses so she decided to move into Commercial Real Estate. During her career she also spent time working with Costar gathering information on properties in the area and also spent time working in Human Resources. Gilco Realty is very pleased to have Michele join the team.
