Margaret Streicker-Porres

Margaret Streicker Porres is the President of Newcastle Realty Services, which she founded in 2004.

Mrs. Streicker Porres has been responsible for the asset repositioning of over 75 properties throughout New York City. She specializes in turnarounds of multi-family portfolios and assets, with associated commercial and retail units. While very focused on this asset class, her versatility shines in a variety of scales and historical eras. She has managed projects ranging in scale from single-family townhomes to entire city blocks and from pre-civil war era buildings to out-of-the ground development. Her clients, colleagues and partners frequently comment that she is able to apply a disciplined, logical and consistent approach while still balancing the idiosyncrasies of each project and situational need. Currently, she has over $500M in assets under direct management. She credits the wonderful team who work alongside her for bringing a consistent standard of professionalism and integrity to the many projects Newcastle oversees.

Prior to founding Newcastle, she held positions in a variety of closely related fields including, Tishman Speyer Properties, Citi Habitats, Deloitte & Touche and various architectural firms.

Mrs. Streicker Porres received an AB summa cum laude from Princeton University. She continued her education and received both a Masters in Architecture degree and a Master of Science degree in Real Estate Development from Columbia GSAPP. She is a licensed Real Estate Broker in New York and Connecticut and a Licensed Receiver in the State of New York. Since 2010 she has served as a Trustee of the New York Jewish Museum. From 2003 to 2011, she sat on the board of the Catalog for Giving of the City of New York, where she chaired their annual gala each year. She is an active member of the Real Estate Board of New York, the Community Housing Improvement Program, the Rent Stabilization Association and the Small Property Owners of New York. She is an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Columbia GSAPP, where she teaches graduate-level multi-family real estate development. Previously she taught graduate courses at NYU Schack and spoke at NYU Stern School of Business. In 2013, she was named Deal-Maker of the Year by the YJP.

Mrs. Streicker Porres has been quoted in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, the New York Post, The Real Deal, and The Daily News on residential real estate and landlord-tenant matters. Reported cases, in which she and Newcastle played a role advancing landlords’ rights, include Washington 941 L.P. v.
