About Us

Meet our Team

Donny Fein and Rob Ernst joined forces in January 2021 to form Elite Israel Realty, Ltd. (“Elite”) to fill a significant void in the Israeli real estate market with a specific focus on Anglo clients and a specialization of overseas clients. Customer service, honesty, transparency, and relationship building are Elite core values and serve as the focus of our daily interactions.  Donny and Rob are passionate about Israel and emotionally attached to the idea of bringing more of their brothers and sisters home to fulfill the mitzva of Yishuv Ha’aretz or at the very least getting a foot in the door.

Rob Ernst

Rob Ernst hails from Rockland County, NY.  Rob received a BS in finance from Binghamton University before receiving his JD/MBA from Pace University while also working part-time.  Rob spent the past 15 years practicing law, initially with a specialization in trust and estate law followed by a successful career in public finance. Rob will bring his legal and finance background to diligently serve all Elite clients.  Rob and his family moved to Israel in August 2017 from Teaneck, NJ on a one-year trial run and thankfully are now on year 5 of the trial run.  Rob believes his biggest compliment is when former clients refer new ones and knows that earning and keeping a client’s trust is not to be taken for granted. Rob is passionate about living in Israel and helping others come join him by settling THE LAND or at least gaining a chelek in Eretz Yisrael.  He is excited to bring value along with a sense of calmness to clients in Israel and around the globe.
