Neil is involved in all facets of the development process from market analysis, acquisitions, design, construction, leasing, and management. The projects have included redevelopment and ground-up developments in retail, office, industrial and mixed-use projects.
Neil's commercial real estate career began in 1988 in the Retail Group at CBRE. Retail Brokerage was a logical starting point considering his extensive experience in positions in the retail industry since his early teens, including head of marketing and sales with Sharp Electronics. Neil's successful transition included a 17-year career as the senior member of CBRE's Retail Group and the top ranked retail broker in the Baltimore office.
Ready for a new challenge, Neil took a leap from brokerage to commercial real estate development and ownership with his WorkShop Development partners. Neil joined Doug Schmidt at Chesapeake Real Estate Group, LLC in 1995 as a partner and is now a partner at WorkShop Development.
