Cory Zelnik

Founder & CEO
Zelnik & Company


A veteran New York City real estate broker and Founder/Chief Executive Officer of Zelnik & Company LLC, Cory Zelnik has launched, crafted, and packaged some of the largest corporate real estate expansions on the east coast. From working with legendary banking and investment staples like JPMorgan Chase, to fitness centers like Blink Fitness, to food service giants Panda Express, Smashburger, Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts, Cory has presided over and specialized in the retail needs of prominent property owners and institutions along with some of the top national retailers in the country for more than three decades. With his well-established independent real estate firm and team, Cory continues to solidify his name as a brand with preparedness, discipline, and integrity. Cory prides himself on loyalty, respect, and trust. With a focus on retail space, and the value it adds to the property economically, he recognizes that the real estate market in the tri-state area is constantly evolving, thus – so is he. His track record has mirrored the upward swing of the real estate business, growing, building, and maintaining its structure and polish since the late 1980’s. “I have been and continue to be in it for the long haul, and bring value add and success over time, not instant gratification.” Cory is a Graduate of University of Maryland and a member of REBNY and ICSC.
