He has extensive experience serving real estate owners, developers, and operators in both the commercial and residential sectors. Gilman advises his clients on day-today operations, tax saving opportunities, and transactional support that includes due diligence on the acquisition and disposition of real estate, 1031 exchanges, and opportunity zones. His experience extends to tax structuring on deals, securing financing, reviewing, and analyzing operating agreements and assisting with client investor relations for both domestic and international investors. Gilman also advises clients on financial and estate planning, budgeting, tax planning, and cash flow strategies. Many of his clients’ projects are built from the ground up and require intensive reviews of construction and ancillary costs. He also consults on compliance, accounting, and tax issues that impact the real estate industry.

During one of the most complex years in recent history, the Anchin Real Estate group was successful in making sure its clients were able to operate. During the pandemic, Gilman provided his clients with simplified access to critical information by creating and distributing topical and timely information. These alerts are accessible to anyone in the industry and provide succinct updates which have been especially important not only for landlords, but also their tenants, throughout the pandemic.

Additionally, Gilman has been involved in the process of establishing Anchin’s Long Island office, and was a key player from the beginning of the office’s planning pre-COVID. He has been on the ground at the office since it opened to ensure smooth and safe operations.

Gilman is recognized for his depth of industry knowledge, reliability, and most recently leadership skills in the wake of COVID-19. He has been instrumental in curating webinars for staff and clients alike on various relief funding and critical information to help support clients.

Gilman is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants, and the Real Estate Board of New York. He is involved with many real estate industry and Long Island based organizations, such as REBNY and the LIA.

Gilman has been recognized on Crain’s 2021 New York’s Notable in Real Estate list, as well as Globe St.’s 2021 Best Bosses award, among other achievements over the last year.
