Our principles are what drive us

01. Integrity

Our deeply held values and half-century reputation for uncompromising integrity have enabled us to build and maintain an environment of mutual trust and respect with tenants, lenders, vendors, civic groups and municipalities.

02. Community

A beneficial presence throughout the Long Island community, Rechler Equity Partners serve on the Boards of various local charitable and cultural organizations. We contribute business expertise, energy and resources to an array of important issues and programs affecting Nassau and Suffolk Counties. The Rechlers are closely involved with: Schneider Children’s Hospital, Nassau County Museum, Cradle of Aviation Museum, Friends of the Arts, RPA Regional Planning Association, and the Mount Sinai Children's Center Foundation.

03. Creativity

Development begins with a creative vision. We transform sites that have been overlooked for lack of imagination or undervalued because of a combination of ownership problems, zoning limitations, or technical obstacles. Working through these often extremely complex and highly sensitive issues to a successful outcome challenges us to think creatively at every step of the process.

04. Integrated Services

We offer a wide range of services and capabilities, including: leasing, property management, site development and planning, architecture, construction, environmental and Green technology, IT services, asset management and finance.

05. Adaptability

Our 60-year commitment to innovation of large and successful development properties demonstrates our ability to adapt quickly to expanding needs, changing market conditions and accelerating technologies. The Long Island commercial marketplace looks to Rechler Equity Partners for advanced real estate solutions and next-step environmental technologies.

06. Experience

The unparalleled breadth and depth of our experience and proven success as developers and dealmakers for over a half century in the Long Island marketplace, positions us as longstanding industry leaders. We are also most likely to be awarded the largest and most important new development opportunities.

We develop
Places to Work,
Places to Live,
Places to Create.
