Recognized for his unrivaled market knowledge and buy-side skill set, Robert has more than 25 years of experience as a real estate investor in New York City. His diversified business background as a banker and trader, paired with his ability to unlock and understand the value of a property, has led to many prominent transactions, particularly in the Downtown residential condo, coop and townhouse market. Robert’s sales volume averages in excess of $300mm/year, approximately 70% of which is high end residential and the balance is commercial or residential-commercial hybrid transactions.

Robert and his small team have executed more than $2 billion in transactions on both the buy and sell side since the company’s founding in 2008. Due to the investment side of the business, Prime also offers a deep inventory of off-market opportunities. His approach is frank, plugged in and realistic.
