Each was acknowledged in the Broker Category for their individual contributions, which include navigating a new era in commercial real estate and NAIDB’s history as well as consistently being a top performer at the firm and NAI Global, respectively.
Here is what the leading New Jersey business magazine’s editorial team had to say:
From the booming e-commerce and logistics sector, to the ongoing, long-lasting growth of multifamily … to the rethinking of office complexes amid a still-uncertain future, the 2023 ROI Influencers: Real Estate list offers the biggest and most important players in the industry, as we honor those leading the way into that future.

Since joining “the family business” DiLeo Realty Associates in 1985 as a sales associate, while attending Rutgers University, DiLeo has been involved in every facet of commercial real estate. Utilizing this early exposure to the full life-cycle of a commercial real estate asset to facilitate future transactions between tenants, landlords, owners and investors, DiLeo went on to build a full-service New Jersey-focused firm once assuming the company reigns in 1990 – just five years after joining the family business.
Known for winning a high velocity of repeat and referral business from satisfied clients, DiLeo along with Eric Bram Johnston engineered the joining together of DiLeo Realty Associates with that of Johnston’s multi-generational commercial real estate firm in 2008: Eric Bram & Co., one of the founding member firms of the NAI Global Managed Network of New Jersey.
