When Avi Cohen, the CEO and founder of  City Wide Realty Inc. and Dror Gliksman, the owner of Around the Block Projects LLC. met at a middle eastern cafe in the Philadelphia suburbs over Shakshuka (a spicy Moroccan egg dish loved and adopted by Israeli natives), it took only few minutes for them to realize the special synergy and vibe of the meeting of their very different minds.

Shakshuka philly

Israeli born and raised, both have been living and working in Philadelphia for years, have been highly active real estate investors in the local market and both have been helping real estate investors navigate the challenges and opportunities that the Philly market presents. The stark contrast in their background and style led them each to develop and specialize in a different approach to real estate. Avi grew up in the North of Israel. He has spent most of his career working in Philadelphia real estate and built a very successful brokerage that continues to grow and thrive at a rapid pace, fed not only by the local market boom but by Avi’s high energy and love of all things real estate. His operation provides one of the most complete solutions available – from sourcing properties, to title insurance, to contracting and property management all under one roof. Enter the Citywide office on any day of the work week and you can’t help but to feel the positive business energy in the air. Avi knows the ins and outs of the city from the ground up like no one else – he has proven more than once that he can see what is coming years ahead of time.

Dror grew up in Tel Aviv. He spent most of his career in the Israeli hi-tech industry, working in marketing where he specialized in leveraging data, technology and high level analysis to develop unique marketing strategies for a wide array of companies and clients. His name is associated with the success of countless Israeli technology, academic and government organizations. He remains a partner in one of Israel’s leading digital content companies until today. Dror entered real estate over ten years ago as a private investor seeking better returns for his personal wealth. He quickly recognized an opportunity to leverage his expert analytical and marketing skills to help other investors make smarter, long term investment decisions and has since helped tens of investors to build their own US real estate  portfolios. 
Together, Avi and Dror have assembled some of the brightest and most ambitious Philadelphia real estate professionals into a multidisciplinary team and founded RErecon, a Pennsylvania based company that delivers unmatched consulting, guidance and troubleshooting for local and remote investors who seek to maximize their growth and success.
