Associate Director of Real Estate






New York City, NY, US


The difficulty in finding housing that can accommodate families in cities, the lack of kid-friendly spaces, and the rising cost of childcare all make living in a city more difficult for families. Forming relationships with other families not only fosters a richer social life but allows you to share in the joys and burdens of raising children, while also fraying many of the costs associated with raising children. Members of a community can also better support each other, whether they’re recommending a great pediatrician or empathizing about the struggles of potty training. Kin is a housing platform founded on the belief that families live better when they’re part of a strong community. Powered by technology, driven by community, Kin is tailor-made to help families live better in cities. 

Kin is a partnership between real estate companies, Tishman Speyer and Common. Working at Kin provides an exciting opportunity to learn from two established companies, while shaping the trajectory for Kin.
