William Abramson (Bill) is Director of Brokerage at Buchbinder & Warren Realty Group. He oversees all commercial and residential sales and leases.

A native New Yorker, Bill earned a BA in Psychology from Boston University and an MA in Sports Management from New York University. Prior to joining the firm, Bill was First Vice President at Chelsea Piers, a position he held for 9 years. As a senior member of the management team, he helped establish Chelsea Piers as the third largest tourist attraction in New York City, and a strong neighborhood amenity that increased real estate value in the surrounding area.

His commitment to community is as impressive as his professional credentials. He presently serves as Vice President of the Union Square Partnership, and member of The Greenwich Village Chelsea Chamber of Commerce and Village Alliance. He has served as Chairman of Community Board #8 in the Bronx for three years, where he was a driving force behind the creation of the 197-A plan, a system by which city agencies and local groups inspire area growth. Bill has been President of the Board of directors of the Riverdale YM-YWHA, and was past President of the Benjamin Franklin Reformed Democratic Club.

He is a recipient of a 2000 David Rockefeller Fellowship that helps develop top private sector leaders and engages them in New York City's public arena. He has been selected several times as “Commander for the Day” by the Policeman's Association and “Principal for a Day” by PENCIL. Mayor Bloomberg appointed Bill to the Workforce Investment Board, where he currently serves on the One Stop Committee.

Bill is an adjunct professor at New York University, where he teaches courses in Facility Management and Leadership in Management. Bill has owned a number of condos and co-ops in New York, and served as president of his condominium board for over five years. He has done numerous residential and commercial deals, serving on Real Estate Board of New York’s (REBNY) Residential Rental Committee, and REBNY’s Retail Committees.

Most recently, Bill was a finalist for REBNY’s Retail Deal of the Year 2012 for putting the national coffee shop Stumptown on the corner of Eighth St. and MacDougal St. He is a consummate leader and role model, and always approachable regarding new deals and meeting new people.
