JOIN US AS WE HONOR AND CELEBRATE
2016 THELMA GIBSON AWARD RECIPIENT
AVRA JAIN

A real estate mogul committed to OUR community, Avra Jain, founder and CEO of the Vagabond Group, is both impressive and inspiring. From bond trading on Wall Street to developing properties in Miami, Avra has earned a reputation for identifying the next “it” neighborhood. The recipient of three Sundance Film Awards for the documentary Dark Days, this industrial engineering graduate from Purdue University develops projects based on two of her favorite pursuits: art and architecture. To date this vision has resulted in 26 boutique projects, from converting a 100,000 sf warehouse to luxury lofts in Tribeca to remaking of The Vagabond from Motel to Hotel on Biscayne Boulevard to pioneering the rebirth of the MiMo district.
