Winick Realty Group has launched a new investment sales division headquartered in the company’s Midtown Manhattan Offices.
Former Cohen Real Estate vice presidnet Michael Cleeman has been tapped to lead the team focused on real estate acquisition and disposition needs.
“I’m looking forward to great synergies between the investment sales and retail leasing teams,” said Cleeman, senior vice president of investment sales.
“The knowledge and information from the retail leasing end of the business will be extremely helpful and beneficial, giving us a strong position from which to service our client base.”
Cleeman has more than 10 years of real estate experience, most recently serving as vice president at Cohen Real Estate in their investment sales group, where he identified retail investment properties across the country for his clients and led the company’s push into the New York City market.
Working alongside Cleeman is Eldon Khorshidi. A former investment sales associate also from Cohen Real Estate, Khorshidi actively sought out commercial property sales opportunities in Tribeca and developed relationships with landlords and investors across New York City.
“We are happy to welcome Michael,” said Winick Realty Group President Steven E. Baker. “We are confident that his strong reputation and relationships will be a great asset as we launch our investment sales division, which we feel is a natural evolution from our retail leasing business.”
