“What attracted us to Rubicon was its forward thinking approach to real estate and strong focus on technology, as well as a thorough knowledge of the Upper West Side market,” stated Frederick Warburg Peters, president of Warburg Realty.

“I look forward to bringing our core values of philanthropy and social entrepreneurship to Warburg,” stated Jason Haber, co-founder of Rubicon Property.
