Winoker Realty acquired following president’s death

A partnership of four New York-area real estate principals has acquired Winoker Realty, the commercial brokerage firm once helmed by David Winoker, who died in a skydiving accident last summer, the new company said today. The new leadership is made up of Ira Fishman and Dana Moskowitz, the respective president and executive vice president of ID Real Estate Partners, a New York City-based commercial real estate firm; and Nathan and Josh Halegua, the principals of Jonis Realty and Citi-Urban Management, which are based in Great Neck, N.Y.

Fishman worked at Winoker Realty between 1998 and 2008, and was the late Winoker’s partner from 2001 until his departure. The four individuals have been business partners and friends for years, they said.

“This is a strong firm with a wonderful history and extraordinary potential,” Fishman said of Winoker Realty. “We have begun the process of rebranding the company, and we intend to invest in it, with expectations to grow and diversify it.”

The 49-year-old Winoker was the president of the firm until he died while skydiving last June. Winoker, along with his 25-year-old skydiving instructor, fell to the ground following an apparent parachute malfunction, though some reports have said a medical condition was involved.

Winoker grew his leasing agency rapidly from 2011 to 2012, winning the leasing assignments for three new buildings.

The firm was founded by Winoker’s father, Sydney.

“In buying Winoker Realty, my partners and I were well aware that Dave and his father … had created a solid platform, and we want to preserve and continue that platform,” Fishman said.

The partnership did not disclose the price of the acquisition.

Fishman’s duties will focus on client relations and new business development. Moskowitz will oversee the leasing division, whereas Nathan Halegua will focus on acquisitions and Josh’s duties will center on management. —Zachary Kussin
