Commercial Property Management Partnerships that Last
Even in difficult economic times, people still need the basic living essentials that our centers provide.
Starting at inception in 2002, our goal has been to make our retail centers a location for destination tenants serving the neighborhoods ranging from swim schools and medical uses to specialty grocer and bakery shops. By focusing our retail on neighborhood and community centers where the majority of tenants provide everyday necessities to the local community, our exposure to economic cycles is minimized. Our office focus is on markets with diverse job creation sources, skilled in‐place workforce and predictable, friendly business environments. Our industrial focus is on small bay multi-tenant buildings or free standing buildings occupied by contractors and small businesses serving the neighborhoods.
THE DNA TEAM
More Than Just a Catchy Business Name
DNA was started by siblings David and Amy in 2002. Over the course of 20+ years, DNA has acquired, sold, and managed over 2,500,000 square feet in several southern US states. The DNA team has grown into a team of professionals who are responsive and have created desirable locations for tenants to occupy successfully and valuable assets for our partners.
A graduate of the NYU Real Estate Masters Program, Amy has been active in real estate transactions from the lending, principle, and asset management side since 1992. In 2001, DNA was formed to acquire retail shopping centers in Florida; expanding over the past 20+ years into several markets along the southern US.
Amy primarily works with our broker network to negotiate all leases and shares the acquisitions and dispositions with brother David.
Among other activities David Weinstein oversees the Financial and Property Management of all properties. With 10 years of experience in Commercial Real Estate as CFO and Owner, David is actively involved in all aspects of acquisition, disposition and management of the DNA portfolio.
Prior to forming DNA Partners, David managed and was a partner in a $50‐million dollar construction supply firm for 17‐years and oversaw 114 mostly Union employees in 4‐locations. A graduate of George Washington University with a degree in Accountancy, David is also a licensed New York State Real Estate Broker.
As Property Manager, Lindsay is the primary point of contact for the daily facility operations at our centers. From addressing tenant build out requirements to regular preventive and scheduled maintenance, she brings a background of project management to DNA that is well suited to her current role.
Her degree in Psychology followed by a Masters in School Counseling give ample foundation to successfully address the high stress and quick turnaround that often accompanies a property management problem call. Her experience managing a State Senate campaign and balancing timeline and constituent pressures are put to good use coordinating projects and managing the details that define a property managers day.
Shirley took over the accounting functions at DNA in 2014. From tenant billing to annual CAM reconciliations, she is responsible for all of the inputs into the key financial reporting including the preparation of work papers for the annual tax returns.
While in college, she gained experience working as a Junior Accountant assisting CPAs in preparing income tax returns. Shirley holds a B.A. in Accounting from Hunter College and is currently pursuing her CPA certification.
