With a broad range of experience across all types of residential and commercial transactions, Kristen Jock is a rarity among real estate agents in her ability to negotiate nearly any kind of deal. With an emphasis on multifamily sales in Brooklyn, she’s spent nearly a decade advising buyers and sellers alike, in addition to investors, developers, and landlords.
Certified as a buyer representative and trained in negotiation, she has already earned several of the industry’s top honors, including being named one of the top 1000 brokers nationwide by NRT and Rising Star at her previous firm. Clients tend to compliment her strong intuition—owing partly to her background in psychology—persistence, and calm, empathetic demeanor, especially during what tends to be one of the most stressful moments of their lives. She sees her role as that of a trusted advisor, and prides herself on being straightforward, levelheaded, and honest, believing a paycheck should never come at the expense of a client’s interests.
In her career, Kristen has serviced almost every neighborhood in Brooklyn, as well as several parts of Queens and Manhattan on both the listing and the buying side. She is also well connected to dozens of other agents and specialists, and quick to recommend someone if the particulars of a deal fall outside of her areas of expertise.
A property owner herself, she currently lives in the Clinton Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn, where she is developing a two-family townhouse. Her first-hand experiences with home ownership have given her a unique perspective on how to spot potential problems, and ensure that her clients always get the best value possible. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, running, and traveling, and volunteers with several charities such as New York Cares and Achilles, which supports athletes with disabilities who compete in marathons.
"Nothing but praise and kudos for Kristen. She advised me on selling my home in Bushwick instead of renting it out. It went into contract within a month and Kristen dealt with everyone and everything that came into play. She was super efficient, no-nonsense approach, and she was a joy to work with. My attorney said she was one of the most on-the-ball and effective realtors he’s ever worked with (in his 20 something years’ career)." - Nico Z.
"Kristen handled every aspect of selling our family property in Williamsburg with ease and free of stress for us. She kept us updated with the process and progress only when there was something significant to report. Kristen was great at coordinating with tenants to show their apartments. We found her to be bright, sensitive to personal issues, and having a good sense of humor as well. From listing, to contract, to closing, we give her 5 stars." - Vincent D.
"Kristen helped my daughter and I to secure her first Condo in Brooklyn. We had a relatively tight timeline and I had very little understanding of the market. Kristen brought a strong level of market knowledge and did a very good job listening to what we were looking for. Over about 4 weekends we covered the primary neighborhood and two secondary ones and by the end of that process I felt I had a strong understanding of the market, value and inventory availability. We made three offers and secured the 3rd property at what I believe will be a strong value. I would highly recommend Kristen and I would definitely use her to represent me on future real estate needs." - Robert D.
"Kristen is a very professional, calm and intelligent broker. She helped us sell our condo in under a week! Even after we had an accepted offer, she never dropped the ball and continued to push the process along. We were thrilled to work with her and would highly recommend her for anyone looking to buy or sell in NYC." - Deborah A.
"Kristen Jock is excellent. She assisted my family with not only the all cash sale of a multifamily building in Brooklyn, NY, but also with the rental of a studio apartment in Downtown Brooklyn under the auspices of a difficult coop board. Kristen is knowledgable and precise. She listens extensively well to her clients offering them personal and thorough advice." - Carla S.
"My first experience with Kristen was during the purchase of my first home. She was actually the seller’s agent. Kristen was EXTREMELY instrumental in making the sale go as smoothly and as quickly as possible, which is what I and the seller were looking for. She is very knowledgeable and always professional. I highly recommend Kristen as an agent if you’re selling, buying or renting!" - Ngozi A.
