About Me

James R. Gross, Head of Douglas Elliman Commercial, has consummated over 40 million square feet of real estate transactions for owners and tenants of all sizes across all industries. He has worked with media giants including Advance Publications and LIN Media; real estate industry leaders including Extell Development Company, Cannon Design, and Soho House; and high-profile legal and financial services entities, including Thomson McKinnon, Morrison & Forster, AIG, European American Bank, Dresdner Bank, EF Hutton, Manufacturers Hanover Trust, The Superintendent of Insurance, and the NY Compensation Insurance Rating Board.

Jim began his career in 1965 working with the legendary Harry Helmsley at Helmsley Spear, where he led tenant acquisition for Helmsley's newest building at the time, 140 Broadway. In 1971, he partnered with Ron Picket to form Williamson, Picket, Gross, Inc. (WPG), a full-service commercial real estate firm with a primary focus on brokerage. WPG also purchased buildings in Manhattan's Financial District at 50 Broadway, 116 John Street, and 85 John Street, and land at 175 Water Street, on which they developed a 35 story, 700,000 square foot office building. In 2010, Jim's son, Peter Gross, re-joined WPG as a partner.

Major transactions Jim has led include the sale of 70 Pine Street, 72 Wall Street, and 99 John Street to AIG, and the sale of 305 East 46th Street to Extell Development Company twice in a seven-year period.

Jim is a graduate of Union College, where he remains a very active alumnus, and holds a graduate degree from Thunderbird School of Management. He is a licensed real estate broker in New York State and an active member of the Real Estate Board of New York. He resides in Larchmont NY with his wife.
