Calvin Gladen has called New York City home the last twenty years. Known his strong work ethic and approachable candor, Calvin's passion real estate began when he and his wife purchased a true fixer-upper in Brooklyn. They worked tirelessly, doing a majority of the work themselves, in order to restore the Art Deco gem to its former glory.
Calvin holds a Bachelor of Arts in History from The University of California, Santa Barbara. During his time in college, he also studied in Morelia, Mexico. What brought Calvin to New York was the bustling theatre scene. He received his acting training at the William Esper Studio, then studied speech and Shakespeare with Robert Neff Williams of the Julliard School. Calvin subsequently founded his own not-for-profit theater company and produced off-Broadway plays for several years.
As Managing Director, he was responsible for taking an unformed idea, and translating it into a developed physical reality. He oversaw everything from negotiating contracts with designers to finding appropriate spaces for each project.
Calvin brings his finely honed negotiating skills and artistic insights when aiding his clients in materializing their visions. He has assisted clients in buying and selling New Development Condominiums, Cooperative apartments and Townhouses across Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Calvin believes that "representing clients requires something unique in every case, because everyone has a different idea of what home means to them. That's why I love what I do. I get to go out there and put together the right team of people in order to turn these dreams into reality."
Whether you are looking for your first home, looking to trade up or seeking an investment for the future, Calvin is working for you.
”Working with Cal was a fantastic experience. He helped us navigate every step in the application process. He knew the apartment building and neighborhood very well and he was always quick to assist and answer any questions we had. This was the first co-op apartment that my partner and I applied for and Cal helped make the entire process seamless and pleasant. We would definitely use Cal as a realtor in a heartbeat.
We are loving our apartment by the way 😊”
