Veteran CBRE Broker Darcy Stacom Launches New Woman-Owned Boutique Advisory, Brokerage Firm
“Commercial real estate in New York and globally is in transition, and that provides a great opportunity for a new nimble boutique advisory firm in this space.”
NEW YORK—Veteran New York real estate broker Darcy Stacom announced today (Feb. 6) the launch of her own boutique advisory and brokerage firm, Stacom CRE.
The entirely woman-owned venture will provide expertise and personalized service to leading clients in the commercial real estate market, building off Stacom's extensive career, including 22 years as Chair and Head of NYC Capital Markets Group at CBRE, and eight times being named New York's top broker.
“Commercial real estate in New York and globally is in transition, and that provides a great opportunity for a new nimble boutique advisory firm in this space,” said Stacom. “As someone who can read and navigate markets, close deals in difficult circumstances, and who has the trust of the commercial real estate community, I think this is the right moment to strike out on my own. This industry needs more women-led enterprises and I look forward to continuing to forge that path and bring the next generation of women leaders along with me.”
In launching Stacom CRE, Stacom brings more than 40 years of experience in New York City selling some of the largest residential and office transactions in history having capitalized more than $150 billion of commercial real estate. Those include the $5.4-billion sale of Peter Cooper Village and Stuyvesant Town (the largest single asset real estate transaction in history), the $2.8-billion sale of the GM Building (the largest single office building sale in history), the $2.6-billion sale of 11 Madison Ave. (the largest office asset sale in Midtown South), and the $1.3-billion sale of 30 Rockefeller Plaza (the largest office condominium sale in history).
“We thank Darcy for numerous contributions in building our New York Investment Properties team. During her more than 20 years here, Darcy drove some of New York's most iconic transactions and has been a champion of diversity and giving back to the community,” said Matt Van Buren, president, New York Tri-State for CBRE. “We wish her well with her new firm.”
In addition to traditional brokerage services, Stacom CRE will provide consulting and strategy services not generally available in the market. The firm will also offer ground lease negotiations; advisory services for clients looking to right size portfolios, exit, or restructure; introduction of limited partners to general partners; and asset dispositions. The nature and size of the firm will allow for fewer internal conflicts.

In addition, she serves on the Executive Committee and the Board of Phipps Houses, the oldest and largest not-for-profit provider of affordable housing in New York City.
