Led by David Arabia, the Bergen County firm formerly known as Friedberg Properties & Associates becomes Corcoran Infinity Properties
NEW YORK, May 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Corcoran Group, LLC today announced its continued expansion by welcoming its newest franchise with the launch of Corcoran Infinity Properties, owned and led by industry veteran David Arabia, the brokerage will serve clients throughout Bergen County, New Jersey. The announcement, made by Pamela Liebman, President and CEO of The Corcoran Group, marks the company’s continued expansion across the greater tri-state area.
Bergen County is the most populous county within the state of New Jersey, bordering New York City to the east, along the Hudson River, and New York’s Rockland County to the north. The county’s proximity to New York City is coupled with convenient commuting options, top-performing public schools, high-end shopping, various entertainment arenas, and an expansive park system that spans nearly 9,000 acres. The renowned location and these desirable amenities continue to attract discerning residential buyers, making the addition of Corcoran Infinity Properties a sensible step for Corcoran’s growing affiliate network.
"Launching Corcoran Infinity Properties adds another crucial puzzle piece to our growing affiliate network, both in the greater tri-state area and across the globe," said Liebman. "Not only does this increase our already substantial presence in the Northeast, David and his world-class team are sure to generate valuable referral opportunities and market insights, as Bergen County continues to grow as one of the area’s most desirable for consumers."
Friedberg Properties & Associates, recently acquired by Arabia, was founded in 1994 by Marlyn Friedberg, as an independently owned real estate brokerage, dedicated to serving Bergen County. Having operated for nearly 30 years, the firm became a staple within the local community for providing efficient, energetic, and effective service to its clients. Ultimately, the firm expanded to include over 100 agents with three dedicated offices in key markets including Alpine, Cresskill, and River Vale.
Parallel to its brokerage business, the firm also operated Friedberg Academy, an in-house program offering continuing education and licensing courses, aiding those agents already licensed, and those just beginning their professional careers as agents. Under Arabia’s new leadership, Corcoran Infinity Properties will carry on this commitment to professional development by utilizing Corcoran’s educational programs, innovative marketing, and technology platforms to maximize agent efficacy.
Born and raised in Tenafly, New Jersey, Arabia spent 25 years as an independent agent before founding Corcoran Infinity Properties. As a top-producing agent and recognized leader within the market, Arabia has a distinguished background in business management, new developments, and luxury residential sales. Repeatedly recognized for his excellence in client service and record-breaking sales history, Arabia has earned the New Jersey Realtors® Circle of Excellence® Platinum Sales Award® multiple times and has been designated as an "Elite" Status Realtor by Bergen Magazine for the past 5 years.
"I am extremely proud to be a part of Corcoran’s expansion and to be working with their talented executive team as we launch Corcoran Infinity Properties," stated Arabia. "Our team of accomplished, specialized, and knowledgeable agents, coupled with Corcoran’s impressive brand recognition, powerful technology platform, and global reach is sure to elevate our already heightened level of client service even further."
For 50 years, Corcoran has stood for excellence in real estate, following their tagline, "Live Who You Are," by providing a human-first approach to real estate that has made it one of the industry’s most luminous brands. Through the company’s strong history of sales, Corcoran has become a leader in their company-owned regions of New York City, where the brokerage has been ranked #1 based on residential sales volume for the last several years1, the Hamptons, as well as Miami and Palm Beach in South Florida – some of America’s most luxurious markets.
