Capalino is excited to welcome Azmi Zahed-Atkins, a licensed architect, to our Real Estate team. She has over two decades of extensive experience in both the public and private sectors. She comes to Capalino from the NYC Department of Buildings, where she served as the Deputy Borough Commissioner in the Bronx as well as a Code & Zoning Specialist in Manhattan. Utilizing her technical knowledge, expertise, and her familiarity with the inner workings of City agencies, Azmi will assist our clients to secure licenses and approvals, resolve problems, and manage complex relationships with government.
