Professional Experience


Barry Finkelman is a Senior Vice President in CBRE’s midtown Manhattan office with more than 8 years of commercial real estate experience.  He specializes in developing and implementing real estate strategies and providing expert counsel during transaction negotiations to ensure optimal client outcomes.

Throughout his career as a tenant representative specialist, Barry has represented a wide variety of TAMI (technology, advertising, media & IT), creative, not-for-profit and private equity firms. An expert in the Midtown South market, he recognized by both clients and peers for having a creative and “out-of-the-box” approach to the real estate business.

The scale of Barry’s recent assignments ranges from single-occupancy transactions to multimarket portfolios including multiple locations for co-working giant WeWork; and also for Open Text, Canada’s largest software firm with approximately 3M sq. ft. in global real estate holdings across more than 80 locations. Significant transactions for Open Text include 120,000 square feet in Munich, Germany and 80,000 square feet in Toronto, Canada.
