Brian's Background

I appreciate my clients and enjoy my work. 18 years, I’ve been recognized as a top producer – one of NYC’s and America’s preeminent closers who has fun fulfilling the property dreams of my clients. I earn this recognition every day continually bringing my sales clients the best prices from the best buyers, and nimbly guiding my buyers to their dream homes. I know how to effectively navigate markets, I love to market homes, I enjoy matching buyers to their new properties, I thrive on negotiation, and I have a great time exceeding the expectations of my clients.

Named one of “Manhattan’s Premier Brokers” NY Living magazine, I frequently get my sellers extra press their homes – I do this regularly appearing as a real estate expert on NBC, PBS, CBS, FOX, CNN, CNBC, and in the NY Times, Wall Street Journal, NY Magazine, Financial Times, NY Observer, NY Sun, & NY Post. Frequently promoting my clients’ properties to the press, I cite them as market anecdotes to get my sellers’ homes more notice. NBC’s NY LIVE gave me my own weekly on-camera real estate segment, I’ve served as an on-camera host HGTV’s National , as a property expert the BBC, and I regularly feature my clients’ homes on NBC’s NYC. The original property videos that I produce my sellers’ homes generate much interest and many leads my clients from around the world.

I’ve new developments, condos, townhouses, lofts, and condos all over New York: Upper Westside, Upper Eastside, Harlem, Midtown East and West, Chelsea, Nolita, Greenwich Village, Washington Heights, Tribeca, Battery Park City, Soho, Inwood, Riverdale, East Village, Lower Eastside, the Flatiron and Financial Districts, all over Brooklyn and in Long Island City. Beyond my work in New York, I’ve built a global property network, and I employ it to link contacts all over the world to whom I deem effective my clients. My real estate business is built upon a seasoned foundation listening, on good communication, on anticipating and satisfying the needs my clients, and on applying my proven, effective, unique sales strategy: Keen pricing, out-of-the-box marketing, expert negotiation, and working in a stress-free, proven way that keeps my clients well served. Daily, I build my success upon the happiness and referrals from my clients.

Born in Richmond, VA, I was raised in Atlanta, GA, and Charlotte, NC. I graduated from The College of William and Mary, with a double concentration in Government and Theatre. My studies also took me to Paris, where I developed my conversational fluency in French, and to North Carolina School of the Art, where I studied acting. I fulfilled a lifelong dream when I moved to New York. While working at the Four Seasons (bellman) and Ritz-Carlton (sales) Hotels, I studied with legendary actress Uta Hagen. I’ve played roles Off-Broadway, on TV, in Films, in numerous TV/Radio commercials, and have voiced several audiobooks. My true joy and success, however, was discovered when I began selling homes. I enjoy my work because I enjoy pleasing my clients. Once my clients are perfectly happy, I like to bike ride along the Hudson, study New York City history, ride (and jump) horses, and travel. I’ve explored many exciting destinations around the USA, Europe, and South America, but my favorite place is still New York City. I’ve lived in this incredible city since 1991 – Downtown, Midtown, and currently in a wonderful Prewar Co-op I own on the Upper West Side where I live with my family, and where I served on my building’s Board of Directors.

I appreciate my clients and customers, and I have a great time fulfilling their property dreams—here in New York, and around the world.
