Networking and Commercial Real Estate

Prior to starting RealConnex – a web site which connects real estate professionals with capital, investments, services and each other, Abrams founded the GPI Real Estate Group – a real estate development and investment advisory organization with operations in the UK, USA and Europe.

RealConnex marries Abrams’ track record, leadership skills and Internet experience with his extensive real estate experience.

He was also a managing director at Lotus development/IBM and CEO of TurboCAD, one of the world’s leading software products. He also held various positions on private and public boards.
