What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? Adler Windows is a NYC premier window installation company. We work with our clients on window installation projects including high-end residential renovations, building-wide replacements, large scale redevelopment and rehabilitation, and new construction. We complete over 500 projects a year, all executed by our in-house staff of over 85 employees. Adler Windows has grown on average 35% a year for the last nine years. We recently opened a showroom in Manhattan which also acts as a learning center and will provide for future growth fueled by our current team, future hires, and amazing clients. It allows us to be closer to our clients and our projects. Our goal is to be a resource for the architectural and building communities. 

How do you unwind from a busy day in real estate? My family keeps me sane. I do my best to turn it all off before walking in the door at the end of the day. The cell phone and computer get put away until after all the kids are asleep and my wife and I have dinner. I have 3 children under the age of five, and we like to go the beach.

One word to describe your work environment: Fun

Rules to live by in business:  Do the right thing no matter the cost, enjoy what you do, and think about how to help others including your clients, employees, and community.
