Clear[zeroPole]

zeroPole[tf_TransferFunctionModel] :=
{Re[#], Im[#]} & /@
Flatten[
Through@
{TransferFunctionZeros, TransferFunctionPoles}@
tf];

tf1 = TransferFunctionModel[
(3 (13/8 + s))/(2 (3/2 (13/8 + s) + s (1 + s) (2 + s) (5 + s))), s];

tf2 = TransferFunctionModel[
(199 + 344 s)/(16 (s (1 + s) (2 + s) (5 + s) + 1/16 (199 + 344 s))), s];

N@zeroPole[tf1]

{{-1.625, 0.}, {-0.5, 0.}, {-0.5, 0.}, {-5.08114, 0.}, {-1.91886, 0.}}

N@zeroPole[tf2]

{{-0.578488, 0.}, {-0.5, 0.}, {-5.97986,
0.}, {-0.760068, -1.89264}, {-0.760068, 1.89264}}
