Bruce understands that property transactions go part and parcel with life's passages, and the challenges one faces during them. He enjoys working with singles, couples and families going through those transitions, and credits his success to a mix of mature life experience and community outreach to intimately know many local neighborhoods throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Bruce came to the world of real estate a decade ago after a thriving career as an advertising executive in Manhattan's Flatiron District marketing diverse business and consumer goods and services. He draws on his marketing expertise and creativity, along with his partners “R-Team”, to help clients achieve their unique real estate goals, whether it be home ownership, a rental, or to sell a prized property.
Bruce is actively involved in the Audubon Park Historic District of Washington Heights, as a popular realtor, a gratified resident, a former board member of his co-op, and a committed community advocate on Community Board 12.
Bruce and his wife Lynne live at The Grinnell, in a wonderful pre-war cooperative apartment which they totally renovated. They are both active members of their co-op, various community organizations, and the Real Estate Board of New York's (REBNY) Upper Manhattan Group. They sometimes escape to their bungalow on the North Fork of Long Island.
Bruce, a former Peace Corps Volunteer, has done pro-bono work for various non-profit organizations throughout the years, including City Harvest and Achilles Track International.
Thank you for being our real estate sherpa! You witnessed the transition of me looking for a place for one to a home for two, married in the interim. We’re grateful to have your support & wisdom on this journey. Especially during our renovation challenges.

I have bought and sold over 30 properties, 10 at 790 Riverside, and can honestly say I have never seen the likes of Bruce & Lynne. They know the market inside and out and work tirelessly. They got me top market value and aided me every step of the way: strategizing, marketing, fixing, cleaning, moving, and very importantly, staging. me about why they’re terrific!

Don't ever forget that Darryl and I have a happy and grateful memory of all our dealings together. All good things.
-James F. & Darryl P., Buyer & Seller
It is very possible Bruce is the best broker in NYC? His marketing was creative and gave us results beyond hope. He is smart, likable, determined, and does not take the trust you place in him casually. Highest recommendation!

You might remember, we had a very difficult situation with another agent before contacting you. Initially, what was most memorable to me from our first meetings was that you listened to us. Seems simple, but not always be the norm. Beyond that, you seemed to instill confidence that there was no reason we couldn’t find a nice place, but at that point were growing weary and feeling defeated. In retrospect, I’d say that the biggest part of why we feel so fortunate that you were our agent was that you stayed by us through the entirety of the purchase process and rsettling into the neighborhood phase as a reliable and genuinely calming and helpful guide. You introduced us to countless people – which was a type of kindness beyond expectation.

What can I say, you are true professionals that I trusted from the first moment we spoke and throughout the whole transaction. Even though I reside in England it was like doing business next door. Thank you so much for your advice, your hand holding, your recommendation of attorney Phyllis (who is amazing), your dealing with the management company and my tenant, not to forget the buyer and his 'entourage'.
