IN-PERSON IN NYC - Open to Professional & Young Leadership Members

Join us for an intimate In-Person real estate roundtable with John Usdan. This session will be an opportunity to connect with a select, intimate group of young rising stars in the industry, as we convene on May 29th.


For over 90 years Midwood has cultivated a diversified real estate portfolio comprised of retail, office, residential, mixed use and net leased properties. Founded in 1925, the company has grown from a residential brokerage into a sophisticated investment and development platform that owns over 125 properties in 10 states and the District of Columbia comprising in excess of 3,500,000 square feet with a development pipeline of several million square feet.


John has dedicated the last 42 years to growing Midwood, a company founded by his grandfather in 1925. Over that time, Midwood has expanded its portfolio to 130 properties in 9 states. Further, he built a management, investment, and development platform to acquire, operate, reposition, and develop new and existing assets. John’s philanthropic interests are primarily focused in education and the arts.
