Professional Experience

Matthew Schwartz joined Winick Realty Group’s Investment Sales and Commercial Leasing Division in 2018. Mr. Schwartz grew up in the real estate business and learned the industry from his father, Carl Schwartz, one of New York’s big developers and copartner of Kent Swig. Studying under his father, he gained rare insight into the deal making process and has gained a strong cliental foundation. Mr. Schwartz previously interned at Helmsley Spear, where he learned about how a building functions and operates. He has taken classes in residential real estate at Halstead, as well as accounting classes at NYU.

A self-taught artist, Mr. Schwartz approaches real estate deals like a blank canvas. He graduated from Parsons School of Design and The School of Visual Arts, earning a BFA in Design and Animation, and also had the honor of studying under his mentor and one of Disney’s lead animators, Mario Menjivar. This experience helped to develop a propensity for problem solving and abstract thought that he brings to his role. A native New Yorker, Mr. Schwartz also has a deep-seated appreciation for the city that informs his real estate career.
