Butwin’s considerable achievements were recognized in 2013 when he was included in the Commercial Observer’s prestigious “30 Under 30” list of New York’s most promising young commercial real estate brokers. Butwin is also an active member of an array of real estate organizations, including: The International Council of Shopping Centers; The Samuel Zell and Robert Lurie Real Estate Center at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania; and the Real Estate Alliance of the Luther Rice Society, George Washington’s alumni network.

With a concentration in finance, Butwin received a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from George Washington University School of Business.

“Building from TOWN’s innovative infrastructure and extensive client base, TOWN Commercial is poised for tremendous success,” said Butwin. “Together with my team, we will provide strategic insight and hands-on support to not only meet, but exceed, our clients’ acquisition, disposition and 1031-exchange needs.”
