About Barak Dunayer

Entrepreneur, Deal Maker, Marketer, Certified Negotiation Expert, Family Man, Triathlete

Barak Dunayer and his team have just partnered with the Jacky Teplitzky team at Douglas Elliman after 20 years in the real estate business. Together, they will create more value and elevate the level of service they provide to their clients, team members and referral partners.

"By partnering, Barak and I are creating one powerhouse team. We are similar in our philosophy and values, and we are both all about giving the best service to our clients," said Jacky Teplitzky. "We are both Israelis who come from an environment of constant change and adaptability."

Barak started his real estate career in 1999 out of his tiny Upper West Side studio apartment and subsequently built his successful agency- BARAK Realty- into one of Manhattan's premier boutique firms including two Manhattan offices, over 40 sales associates, 400 transactions per year and over $500,000,000 in volume. In 2012, his company was acquired by Halstead Real Estate where, for nearly 7 years, his sales team was consistently ranked among the firm's top producers.

Barak's knowledge, integrity, and commitment to customer service fostered meaningful long-term relationships with clients, who provide an endless stream of referrals and continue to generate repeat business. "They have become my friends and always appreciate the knowledge and experience I gladly share with them," Barak says. "I cherish my growing number of sellers, buyers, property owners and renters who place their trust in my services for all their diverse real estate needs." A real estate owner and investor himself, a consummate businessperson, deal maker, and a certified negotiation expert, Barak adds value to his clients by sharing knowledge, support and guidance before, during, and after their real estate transactions.

Barak was born and raised in Israel where he grew up pursuing his first lifelong goal of becoming a world-class trumpet player. As a young musician, Barak won numerous musical competitions, played principal trumpet in some of Israel's prominent youth orchestras and has appeared several times as a soloist with both the Haifa Symphony and the Israeli Philharmonic. After graduating high school and serving in the Israeli Army (Lead Trumpet at the Israeli Army Band) he received a full scholarship to study at The Juilliard School and landed in New York.

Barak is a frequent speaker at various high-profile venues. He served as an adjunct professor of real estate at New York University, has presented at the New York Real Estate Institute, Ivy Real Estate School, Baruch College Newman Institute, Jewish Community Center of Manhattan, National Realty Club, the Real Estate Academy and REBNY. He finds his speaking engagements enriching and inspiring to the students and himself as well as a way to give back to the real estate community. Barak's views and expertise have been frequently quoted in the NY Times, NY Post, The Real Deal, Real Estate Weekly, The Mann Report, and NY Magazine. He's an active member of the real estate board of New York where he previously served as co-chair of the education committee and as a member of the board of governors.

Barak lives on the Upper West Side with his wife, Yael, and three daughters, Maya who attends Stuyvesant High School, Noa and Shira attend the gifted and talented program at PS 166 - The Richard Rogers School. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family and traveling around the world. Barak and Yael are active members of Fifth Avenue Synagogue where Barak can frequently be found leading Shabbat services, and proudly supports The Metropolitan Opera, American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, and The UJA Federation. An avid runner and triathlete, Barak successfully completed 6 Ironman 70.3 races, 3 Olympic distance triathlons, and 2 marathons.
