When you first meet Brian, you’ll find it hard to believe that he’s originally from Ohio, as he possesses all the charisma, discernment, and endurance that you’d expect to find in a native New Yorker.
He navigates Manhattan in a car more adept than most taxi drivers, always one step ahead, taking into consideration every possible traffic and street layout nuance. He applies the same methodological grit when working with his clients looking for a new home, juggling their lifestyle and property criteria and anticipating their future needs that might not be immediately self-evident.
While an excellent property hunter, Brian’s most sought after quality is his softer, visionary side. His creative spatial skills developed as a child, working on construction projects with his dad, a custom cabinetmaker. He later worked with his father planning and installing Ohio-built custom cabinets in Manhattan, from Greenwich Village to the Upper West Side. Brian is extremely knowledgeable about New York kitchens because he’s designed and installed many himself.
One of Brian’s favorite pastimes is examining his friends’ apartments and using his “x-ray vision” to assess all possibilities for peak living space. He extends this passion to all his clients, helping them obtain optimum home value, whether they are selling or purchasing a property.
Prior to working in real estate, Brian sold residential mortgages for Chase Bank for more than ten years, giving him deep insights into how finances can impact your current property or future purchase.
Perhaps Brian’s most memorable quality is his conversational style, bold and humorous like Jon Stewart, yet deeply inquisitive and considerate like Oprah. Working with Brian is like having your personal, talk show host who knows the correct questions to ask about your lifestyle, design and finances.
