Business Team


Exceptional People. Extraordinary Results.



David C. Muraco founded Empire Management of CNY, Inc. in 1988. Prior to founding Empire Management, David worked as a commercial real estate broker for Eagan Real Estate. At one time, Eagan Real Estate was the most powerful real estate company in the county. They ruled the Syracuse area and were very influential in bringing MONY to Central New York. 

"All of the developers in Central New York over the last 40 years were kind of trained in the Eagan camp."

That would include Michael J. Falcone of Pioneer Development and many executives of The Pyramid Cos., builder and owner of Carousel Center mall and other shopping centers. Bill Eagan's influence was profound.

David left Eagan in 1988 and began purchasing and building shopping centers, apartment complexes, condominiums, and homes on his own. David is a respected industry figure and leader of an exceptional team at Empire Management. 



Louis, the son of David C. Muraco, oversees the commercial division of Empire Management. Louis joined the Empire team after graduating St. Lawrence University in the summer of 2015. As a valuable member of our company, Louis is actively involved in the day to day of commercial leasing and development, property management, maintenance, and project estimating.

In the summer of 2018, Louis and David founded Marketplace Partners RT 20, LLC which is a partner in the Caz Market Development in the lakeside community of Cazenovia, NY. The development is comprised of an ALDI Supermarket and a brand new mixed-use building housing 2 retail spaces on the ground floor and 12 luxury apartments on floors 2 and 3. The project is also approved for a drug store and 48 more apartments to the rear of the property.
