Arthur Becker is one of the biggest real estate investors currently operating in New York City but you would be hard pressed to guess exactly where he came from. Becker is one of the more interesting entrepreneurs that we have come across over the years thanks to his unique path to success. Becker’s success is definitely something that entrepreneurs in the future can learn from and so we are definitely going to leap in and see just what there is to gleam from his story.
We can go back to the early aught in order to see Arthur Becker working as a stockbroker buying and selling tech companies for Bear Stearns. Becker’s earliest forms of success came during this period of time where he hit it big by selling the right tech companies. Becker didn’t take long in order to parlay that success into future opportunities. Becker immediately leaped into the real estate game by heading down to Florida as well as over to New York in order to engage in the industry. Becker’s work quickly spread to a variety of different industries both inside of and outside of the real estate world. Asked by Perez Hilton about the common theme following all of his investments? “passion”.
Arthur Becker has pursued his passions in just about every investment opportunity that his risen. He’s focused on artwork, ancient currency, and more all along the way. One of our favorite Becker investments is in ancient artifact currency that has been found throughout Nigeria and Cameroon in Africa. These are interesting industries that proved beneficial for Becker.
Becker is a man of passion and that’s why a visit to his Tribeca-area office is so enlightening. When you walk into the office you will see that one half of the office is literally an art studio where projects are on display and other projects are half finished. On the other side of the office you’ll stare down some of the biggest developments in the real estate game that are hitting New York now and in the future. This dichotomy showcases Becker’s passion for two things and he treats them all equally.
