Noah Ostroff: Founder
After college, Noah moved to Palm Beach Gardens, Florida where Noah immediately began working as a project manager for Toll Brothers and subsequently Centex Homes. As the youngest-ever project manager, he oversaw the entire building operation of hundreds of new luxury homes. Noah moved back to Center City, Philadelphia in 2006, after deciding to start a family and move closer to a large network of friends and family in the Philadelphia area. With his experience in new home construction, and after purchasing several homes in Philadelphia and Florida, he found that he enjoyed and excelled at giving advice and assistance to friends making their first purchase. It was only a matter of time before he would consider making his hobby a full time career.
In 2008, Noah joined Coldwell Banker Preferred and rapidly became one of the company's top performing agents. In 2009, he earned the "Rookie of the Year" award for closing more deals in his first full year than any other agents in the company's history. In 2010, Philadelphia Magazine gave Noah Ostroff the 5 Star Award for excellence in the industry. Noah then formed an exceptional team of agents, marketing professionals and operations staff to help better serve the Philadelphia Real Estate market.
