Over his three decades of experience, Mr. Workman has successfully completed deals across the United States, in a variety of states that includes New York, Florida, Georgia, California, North Carolina and South Carolina. His background includes financial and accounting positions at Merrill Lynch and Ernst & Young, respectively, as well as 15 years of experience in commercial leasing, which gives him unique insight into how a building functions financially and what goes into the creation of a successful investment deal.

Among his most notable transactions, Workman executed multiple 1031 exchanges in New Jersey, Florida and New York, among others. Workman acted as buyer broker for a foreign investment group in the acquisition of two off-market downtown office buildings at 67 Broad Street (now 75 Broad Street) and 39 Broadway, totaling approximately 1.2 million square feet. He sold seven supermarkets and five CVS locations totaling approximately 400,000 square feet in Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina to The Rosen Organization, as well as 1,000 acres of land at the Tennanah Lake Golf & Tennis Club in Roscoe, NY to one of the largest landlords in Palm Beach. Workman represented Pace University in the off-market acquisition of 100,000 square feet at 106 Fulton Street; sold more than 100,000 square feet of air rights at 310 West 52nd Street to Sant Chatwal, the developer of the Dream Hotel; and oversaw the marketing and eventual sale of 80-90 Livingston Street, a multi-use building comprised of existing retail and residential units with development rights in Brooklyn.
