MONA is a first-of-its-kind retail leasing and advisory firm that uses modern tools to guide tenants and landlords through the increasingly disrupted retail landscape. An acronym that stands for “Making Of a New Age,” MONA’s name was inspired by the most famous image of the Renaissance period as well as its founders’ steadfast belief that retail has entered a renaissance of its own.
MONA is led by chief executive officer and founder Brandon L. Singer, a respected commercial real estate industry veteran. Singer’s partner and co-founder, Michael Cody, serves as head of operations and administration. Singer and Cody have worked together for nearly a decade, during which time they have brokered major retail deals in New York City and in gateway cities throughout the United States.
Since its inception in September 2020, MONA has negotiated dozens of leases on behalf of landlords and tenants in New York City and beyond. The firm’s winning culture has attracted a mix of established, senior-level professionals and young talents who are hungry to learn from the best in the retail industry. MONA’s transactions have received multiple nominations for the Real Estate Board of New York’s prestigious Retail Deal of the Year Award.
“As retail continues to evolve, so does retail real estate,” said Singer. “MONA was launched to offer intelligent solutions for the challenges facing landlords and tenants in the years and months to come. We have unshakable faith in retail’s future and are excited to help our industry move forward to a brighter tomorrow.”
Welcome to the renaissance of retail.
