About The Broker
Ana Bogdan has 14 years of experience in the real estate industry and is the founder and President of Twelve Eleven Equities, Inc. (Bogdan Group), which has been in full operation since April, 2010.
Within the very short time that Bogdan Group has been operating, Ms. Bogdan has sold and leased multi-unit apartment buildings in premier locations in both Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, The Bronx. These deals range from as small as 6-8 unit apartment buildings to as large as 30 unit apartment buildings in Williamsburg, as well as a ground lease for developers in Green Point, Brooklyn where they are redeveloping the property as a 60+ unit apartment building.
Ms. Bogdan has also been involved in the sale of commercial property in Downtown Brooklyn to a hotel developer and has extensive experience in all property types. She prides herself on her ability to understand the wants and needs of the parties on both sides of her transactions. She has repeatedly been able to discover untapped opportunities and has succeeded in creating deals where others either did not see the possibilities or were unwilling to invest the time and effort necessary to structure the deal and bring it successfully to conclusion.
Prior to being in the real estate business, Ms. Bogdan held several executive positions at leading manufacturing and importing companies in the apparel industry where she worked with many major retailers, including Wal-Mart. In her most recent work with Wal-Mart, she was responsible for supervising her company’s entire Wal-Mart team and was able to grow its private label Wal-Mart sales volume to over $50 million per year. This work involved traveling to Hong Kong, Shanghai, Korea and Shenzhen to work with Wal-Mart on styling, pricing and getting final commitments on quantities, meeting with buyers and brand managers to determine the styling and design direction for each new season, working directly with the factories, resolving distribution problems and interceding with respect to all customer issues.
Ms. Bogdan is a duly licensed Real Estate Broker and also holds the following New York State certifications: GRI - Graduate Realtors Institute; and CBR - Certified Buyers Representative. She also has received both BBA and an MBA degrees.
Ms Bogdan is fluent in Spanish and Romanian.
