Arthur Becker is the Managing Partner working at Madison Partners, LLC and he is becoming quickly one of our favorite and most influential real estate developers in the city of New York. Becker has come a long way over the past 15+ years as he worked his way from a Bear Stearns stockbroker into one of the heaviest hitting entrepreneurs in all of New York City. Let’s take a loser look at his meteoric ascent and the path by which Becker came to this success.
You’d have to go back to the early 2000s in order to see Arthur Becker before his first fortune. Becker was working as a stockbroker for Bear Stearns, buying and trading technology companies. It was during this time that Becker struck it big with a couple of sales. Becker would take that success and head right into the real estate market. Becker would turn to Miami and New York as his first two testing grounds for his real estate business. Becker found New York more appealing and he would turn away from Miami to focus therein. By 2011 Becker had started Madison Partners and he was the Managing Partner there.
When it comes to real estate it is all about diversifying and making sure that your investments have a chance to strike it back. So Arthur Becker started by first working right with the big hitters in New York as a quiet backer. Becker got on bored with Kevin Maloney and Michael Stearn in order to work on their Billionaires’ Row project which was located at 111 W 57th Street. Becker’s work here would get him even more work as he switch gears to work on a luxury condo development on Sullivan Street. These early projects gave Becker the momentum he needed in order to get really going.
According to The Real Deal, Arthur Becker is far more than a real estate investor, however, as he is also a huge artist. Becker’s Tribeca neighborhood studio is split directly in half, one side is focused on real estate while the other is literally an art studio. Becker’s diversity has made him successful every step of the way.
