The Women of Influence feature recognizes those in the real estate industry with an exceptional track record of transactional volume, or who have made a significant contribution to the industry at large.

Karen Scanna has worked on several of the most complicated and high profile transactions in New York City, focusing primarily on acquisition, development and financing (mortgage, mezzanine and preferred equity, construction and permanent), usually from the owner/operator's perspective.  In addition to being involved in transactions covering the more traditional property types, such as office, retail and multifamily (including affordable and fair market housing, ground up condominium developments and condominium conversions), Ms. Scanna is also experienced with various "alternative" property types, including hotels, assisted and senior living and student housing.
