I used to browse the Corcoran site for fun, clicking on the most luxuriously expensive properties and staring at amazing photos of these exceptional homes. Then one day I happened to scroll down, where the agent's picture pops up, and there was an average, yet intelligent looking guy, smiling. It said 'contact me for showings'. And I thought, 'I want to do that!'
I got my real estate license months later and joined a small firm in Queens. My first day the broker's husband came to me said, pretty sarcastically, 'If you sell anything today, make it this one. The seller is in danger of foreclosing.' And he tossed a listing on my desk. 6 days later I had it going into contract. My first sale. The seller came in to meet me. She thanked me a million times, hugging me with tears in her eyes and I never forgot that moment. It drives me today, helping people.
Soon, I craved the reputation and power of Corcoran and I remembered that smiling guy on that spectacular listing. So, I came here.
I started in Clinton Hill, Fort Greene and Bedford Stuyvesant, neighborhoods I had little knowledge of but quickly fell in love with. I sold my first brownstone on Gates Avenue and Saint James Place, but not before listing it on Corcoran.com, adding my smiling picture and directing you to contact ME for showings.
This is what I was meant to do. I meet so many people everyday and I find something new and interesting about each of them. You make friends in this business, you find colleagues that support you and clients that need and trust you. Anyone I've ever worked with, buyer, seller, renter or landlord will tell you my invaluable service to them was so much more than what they expected. I know what I'm doing. I know the different markets in New York and the techniques to be successful within each. But more importantly, I get to know you. What you want. What you need. And then, I can make a real estate love connection.
What I've done for clients: Handled sales listings in Brooklyn and Queens; townhouses, condos and co-ops. I've handled rentals for both sides; finding the perfect tenant for the landlord and finding the perfect apartment for the tenant. I've done home evaluations with many people who have yet to list because the time must be right for them to do so. I am generous with my time and knowledge. I have picked up clients and drove them to appointments, I have listened to people's life stories and I've treated buyers to cupcakes at my favorite cake shop on Myrtle Ave.
