Mark Pateman, known affectionately by his colleagues as “Pateman,” is a Managing Director on our South Florida team and currently manages the West Palm Beach and Boca Raton offices with 30 brokers, 3.5 million square feet of Agency leasing portfolio, 350,000 square feet of Occupier representation and an average of $100 million of investment sales in any given year.
Before he became a commercial real estate broker, Pateman began his legal career at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft in New York providing transactional legal advice to financial institutions. Upon moving to Florida full-time in 1998, he joined Shutts & Bowen, LLP and then moved on to open Empire Resources, LLC a brokerage and consulting firm. Since joining Cushman & Wakefield in 2006, Pateman has seen the office grow from two brokers in a 800 square foot Palm Beach Gardens office, to a 30-plus brokerage operation with two offices in Palm Beach County, offering white glove bespoke commercial real estate services and a dominant market presence.
Pateman is a top producer, an amazing broker, an indispensable mentor, and the fearless leader of our South Florida team. We thank him for his 10 years of service and look forward to many more years of working alongside him – shoes optional.
Now on a personal note….
In his free time, Pateman enjoys motorcycle touring, road and mountain cycling, skiing, short course triathlons, reading maps and most notably, memorizing family trees of Tolkien’s Noble Houses of the Elves of Valinor and Middle Earth.
At night, Pateman regularly dreams of living on a Vinyasa Flow Yogic Commune with access to fresh fish and bok choy.
For his caffeine fix, Pateman likes a whole milk latte with no added sweetener.
