About Ilan Bracha


Ilan Bracha, the Co-founder of Keller Williams NYC and Founder of Bracha New York, has long been considered one of Manhattan’s super real estate agents – having completed well over $2 billion in transactions. He has established an impressive global network of clients with asset portfolios valued at more than $10 billion.

In 2010, following a distinguished and award-winning career at Douglas Elliman Real Estate, Bracha established the Bracha Group where, as Elliman’s youngest managing director, led an unparalleled team of agents. Simultaneously, Bracha co-founded the B+B Investment Group – which focused on high-end residential and commercial properties at some of Manhattan’s premier addresses. Prior to joining Elliman in 2003, Bracha worked with Lewis Kaye at MLB Kay International Realty. Under Lewis Kaye’s mentorship, it wasn’t long before Bracha became the firm’s top producer.

At Keller Williams NYC with Bracha New York, Bracha’s mission is to create a company made up of well over 300 agents to further solidify its position as a premier New York City brokerage – handling well over $250 million in team transactions.

Bracha is the recipient of numerous awards at Elliman, including the number one spot for Top Individual Sales for five consecutive years and second within the brokerage’s entire network, the Top Producing Sales Group, Most Sales Exclusives, and Most Projects to Close. Bracha has also appeared on a number of TV networks, including CNBC, WPIX and NY1, and has been widely quoted in publications such as the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, The Real Deal, Gotham, Avenue and New York magazine.

Israeli-born, Bracha served as a Commander in the Israeli army, and at the age of 21, with just two thousand dollars in his pocket, he set out to see the world. Some two decades later, his colleagues credit his success to his entrepreneurial prowess and leadership skills.

Bracha lives with his wife and three children on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
