Joshua Saslove, founder and chief executive officer of Joshua & Co., an Aspen real estate company known for handling transactions for the discriminating real estate buyers and sellers, has announced that broker, Gary Feldman, has joined the firm as managing partner.
“My goal to selectively grow Joshua & Co, has begun by making Gary Feldman its managing partner,” Saslove said. “Gary was my only choice from the beginning as he possesses the reputation and leadership, not to mention a highly successful brokerage track record, to help brand Joshua & Co. as synonymous with Aspen elite real estate.”
Also joining Joshua & Co. are Cynthia Milling and Jennifer Engel, along with their assistants. A third Aspen office will open at 511 East Hyman Ave. to accommodate the expanding Joshua & Co. team of brokers, and to complement the 300 South Hunter Avenue and Aspen Highlands Village locations.
Feldman, most recently a top broker with Coates Reid & Waldron for the past five years, has been a local broker for 23 years. He has been president of Aspen’s Board of Realtors and a Realtor of the Year, and has chaired the board’s Professional Standards Committee for more than 10 years. Feldman is also known for selling exclusive properties including Popish Valley Ranch in Wildcat Ranch which recently sold for $26 million.
Utilizing her extensive design background, Milling has completed over 20 development projects in her 12 years’ experience, including Braun Ranch, one of the largest land-use ventures in the Roaring Fork Valley. In 2006, she sold $32 million and already has $30 million under her belt in 2007.
Engel was mentored by the late Sara Sue Kataoka, a longtime Aspen broker. Engel has become one of Aspen’s rising stars, selling more than $50 million in 2006.
As managing partner, Feldman will be responsible for day-to-day operations of the brokerage business.
The new structure will allow Saslove to continue to focus on his clientele, promote the reputation of the company, and manage the numerous development and investment opportunities in which he is involved.
