Robert Burton

Sr. Managing Director • United States


Robert Burton is a Licensed Associate Broker and Senior Managing Director in the New York Middle Market Investment Sales Group of Cushman & Wakefield, where he focuses on downtown Manhattan, including SoHo, NoHo, Hudson Square, NoLita, and Chinatown. To date, Robert has closed over $1.5 Billion worth of sales. Robert began his real estate career at Massey Knakal Realty Services in 1997 and spearheaded their expansion from Midtown to Downtown. He was Senior Vice President at Massey Knakal, which was acquired by Cushman & Wakefield on December 31, 2014.

The key to his success is a team approach. Robert’s team must be knowledgeable on all aspects of their listings, so when they are speaking with a client, a buyer, or a broker, they can relay up to the minute information. When a seller hires Robert’s team, he or she is not getting the expertise of just one broker, but the collective talent of an entire team.

Robert oversees the team’s operations, client interaction, and negotiations with buyers. His team facilitates cooperation with the outside brokerage community and conducts the majority of property tours. Together, they underwrite property valuations, provide market analysis and prepare marketing materials.

Robert’s previous work experience includes more than five years at the Wall Street firm L.F. Rothschild, Unterberg, Towbin in its marketing department where he coordinated special events, conferences and road shows.

Mr. Burton has also been a professional actor. He is an active member of Actors Equity Association and SAG/AFTRA. Robert is also an instrument rated private pilot and owns his own Cessna 210M. He has lived downtown in SoHo for more than 40 years.
