Robin Schneiderman

Developers and investors come to Robin for his encyclopedic market knowledge, deep relationships, and honest analysis in every stage of new development, from site analysis through sell-out.

The city's largest developers and boutique firms, institutional investors, and debt and equity brokers, seek out Robin Schneiderman's market prowess to determine a site’s potential for new development and his guidance from acquisition and development through lending, sales and completion. Partners can trust Robin for his encyclopedic market knowledge and honesty throughout all points of a project’s lifecycle or repositioning.

During site analysis, he adds invaluable insight and knowledge of marketplace trends to assure a prudent investment decision. Deep experience in zoning, equity partnerships, development site sales, and inclusionary air rights helps Robin guide developers and equity providers on what product is needed in the specific submarket where they are planning to develop.

His sound decisions during predevelopment help elevate each offering in the competitive marketplace through selection of architecture and interior design teams, amenity recommendations, and strategic alliances and partnerships in working with BHSDM’s marketing arm. Together, this holistic approach drives premium pricing, which Robin’s oversight frequently achieves for developments in their specific submarkets.

For more than a decade, his advisory has been instrumental in the sourcing, development and sales of more than 15 projects totaling more than $3 billion of new development sell-outs complete or in process, including:

200 Amsterdam (Upper West Side), The Leyton at 1059 Third Avenue, 393 West End Avenue (Upper West Side), 51 Jay Street (Dumbo), 318 West 52nd Street (Midtown West), 99 Morningside (West Harlem), 613 Baltic (Park Slope), 251 First (Park Slope), 200 Water (Dumbo), 368 3rd Avenue (Kips Bay), 269 West 87th Street (Upper West Side), 11 East 36th Street

Beyond his work with developers, he consults with clients’ capital partners to pull together underwriting and project future sales through broker opinion of value, detailed comp reports, and pipeline of future developments. His deep and trusted relationships throughout the institutional capital, private equity and family office industries are invaluable to his clients as they fill their capital stack and grow their business.

Robin led the formation of Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing’s Research & Advisory arm in 2020 as a natural extension of the team’s decades-long work assisting developers, equity providers and lenders in their underwriting.

Robin started in real estate as an agent, and quickly became a top agent at one of New York's largest brokerage firms. He lives in on Long Island with his wife and two children. He is on the Syracuse University Real Estate Advisory Board and REBNY member. In his free time, he is active in the fight against Multiple Sclerosis and can be found on Shelter Island during summer weekends and skiing in the winter.
