Imagine a marketing strategy so powerful that it not only revolutionized the New York City real estate industry but is now transforming businesses globally. This is the essence of One Page Case Studies, an evolution of the legendary Bob Knakal, and his Territory System into a universal blueprint for success.
In a world where data drives decisions, the right strategy can be the difference between success and stagnation.
The Territory System, a groundbreaking methodology born in the heart of New York City’s real estate market, not only revolutionized property investment but also found its applications in various industries around the globe.
But what happens when this time-tested strategy meets the digital age? The answer lies in One Page Case Studies, a venture modernizing the foundational principles of the Territory System for today’s interconnected world.
The Bob Knakal Territory System: A Revolution in NYC Real Estate
In 1988, Bob Knakal and Paul Massey founded Massey Knakal, a commercial real estate firm that forever altered the investment sales landscape in New York City. Starting with just the two of them and a secretary in an 800-square-foot sublet, they built a $100 million empire by the time they sold the firm to Cushman & Wakefield in 2014.
The cornerstone of their success was the Territory System. Recognizing that they were not merely in the real estate business but in the information business, Bob Knakal developed a unique approach. He divided New York City into distinct territories, assigning a senior broker to each. These brokers became experts in their respective areas, providing unparalleled insights and data that stood far above the competition.
This system didn’t just revolutionize property investment; it set a new standard for leveraging information for success. According to CoStar, from 2001 to 2014, Massey Knakal sold 4,002 properties in NYC, while the second-ranking company sold just 1,323.
Bob Knakal on the Success of the Territory System
Bob Knakal, now head of the NY Private Capital Group within JLL Capital Markets, continues to influence the real estate industry. He sums it up best: “The success of the folks who learned the business with our platform, benefit from a system based on intensive training, consistent encouragement, inspiring motivation, and servant leadership.”
According to Knakal, “We just provided a supportive platform, and each of these individuals did the rest. It’s a great reflection on them and their talents.”

One Page Case Studies: The Digital Evolution of the Territory System
Building on the Territory System’s legacy, Ed Winslow (The First Sales Broker with MKRS) along with Caroline Vega co-founded One Page Case Studies to bring this proven strategy into the digital realm. Their unique contribution to this methodology is the concept of “Proof Stacking,” which involves compiling and “stacking” evidence of business successes to build credibility and drive growth.
The Power of Proof Stacking
While the Territory System excelled in leveraging localized expertise, Proof Stacking takes this a step further by adding a layer of verified success stories and testimonials. This approach not only enhances credibility but also fosters organic growth, aligning with Bob Knakal’s philosophy of “growing your business geometrically.”
