More Views, Lower Cost

April 4th, 2013 · No Comments

A family member recently purchased this 3Bed condo on the 12th floor at Schaefer Landing, and while I must admit having reservations about the location, and building, this unit simply wowed me. The views speak for themselves.  For $1,260,000 the 1,650 square foot 3Bed/2bath was purchased at $764persqft, which in my opinion is a great investment for […]

The Right Time to Invest

April 3rd, 2013 · 1 Comment

It is clearly a sellers market, but does that translate into bad timing for investment?  As the resales market begins to surge, inventory is far below demand, pushing prices up into the clouds. The initial thought that likely comes to mind is to steer clear of investing in Williamsburg, for the time being.  This may not be […]

Brick&Mortar Launch

August 12th, 2012 · No Comments

For the past several months I have been in the woodshed, carving out a new concept for the inception of Brick&Mortar.  The Real Estate Brokerage has been born from the absolute need of true, quality customer service, in an area that desperately needs honest salespeople.  This environment isn’t an easy thing to create when misleading […]

The Overpricing Epidemic

February 6th, 2012 · 3 Comments

I have recently encountered what seems to be a reoccurring problem in the process of hunting for listings in my farm area.  While I typically create a CMA (comparative market analysis) to hone in on the proper list price for a home, I have found that most Brokers, and their associates, do no such thing.  […]

Owners Notice - Are Brokers Really Working for YOU?

December 16th, 2011 · 1 Comment

Owners beware.  A real problem exists between the relationship of Real Estate Brokers and the Landlord/Owners that they supposedly represent.  By New York State law, acting as a Landlord’s Agent, a Broker & all independent contractors who are bound to the Broker owe honesty, full disclosure, his/her fiduciary duties to the owner, etc….. and are […]

Still on the up & up

December 9th, 2011 · No Comments

Wow…..well the empty lot that takes up most of the block from North 11th to North 12th Street on Bedford Avenue, which has been basically been continuously stalled after stop-and-go construction every very few months, is finally underway and going up quickly.  The expected 400+ unit luxury rental building may be ready as early as […]
