2015 Agent of the Year - Commercial Division
Diamond Club Member
As a senior member of Halstead’s commercial real estate team, Drunell Levinson brings a multiplicity of talent and experience with her. She has worked in many different areas of the commercial real estate industry, including investment sales, office and retail leasing, temporary short-term pop-ups, as well as nationwide rooftop antenna site location placement. With this Drunell has built a loyal customer base and a network of referral business.
For the last nine years, Drunell has been a New York City commercial leasing and investment sales agent. She has worked on the agency side helping building owners to lease and sell their properties, and on the tenant side finding office, retail and restaurant spaces. She has also worked with non-profit organizations to acquire new development properties.
Prior to her real estate sales work, Drunell was a New York City art fair director and manager. Here she focused on all aspects of temporary locations for exhibitions, including sales, floor plans, construction and build out specifications, and interior design details. She also secured art fair preview beneficiaries and managed their logistics for the opening night fundraiser events.
Drunell’s broad knowledge of environments and real estate locations as a whole was aided by her many years of experience as a communications consultant. In this position she located nationwide rooftop and mountain top antenna site locations for FCC communications licensees. Through this experience she gained advance knowledge of new communications technologies, such as mobile phone, and digital electronic messaging. This placed her at the forefront of industry professionals familiar with new technology and its requirements.
Drunell is a Ph.D. graduate of New York University, Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Education and Development. A longtime resident of the EastVillage, Drunell is also a published author.
